“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that Knowsley Safari has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.


We offer a range of educational activities for schools, including workshops and guided tours, delivered by our expert safari educators that help to bring learning to life for pupils.

We're open for school trips all year round and have now developed trips in line with new Covid-19 guidance. A visit itinerary will be made for your school group with safety measures incorporated throughout the day. Call us for more information on how our school trips will work for your class.

Your School Discovery Day: Wellbeing through Wildlife

New for Spring 2021 – we’ve developed a new type of safari school trip in line with Covid-19 guidance in order to keep your class safe. The day is for KS1 and KS2 and features a guided safari coach tour and a curriculum linked discovery workshop in our tiger classroom. You'll be joined throughout the day by one of our expert safari educators, see more information about each of the day's activities below.

From the guided safari coach tour to the tiger classroom we are equipped with full PPE in line with Covid-19 guidance. Schools can request whether our brilliant education team wear a visor or mask. Staff will also have spray sanitiser and wipes for shared tools, equipment, and benches to sanitise between users where appropriate. In addition, staff will carry hand sanitiser so students can sanitise their hands after each activity.

Activities are based around the 6 ways to wellbeing: These will be seamlessly integrated through the day to maximise the effect of the trip on children’s learning, physical and mental health and overall happiness and welfare. The wellbeing of children was found to be a top concern of teachers we surveyed therefore the trip will work to enhance this as well as provide great learning and social opportunities and time with the animals.
