Safari Park Update

Well, that’s Christmas and New Year done gone and I hope you all had a good one.

Work hasn’t stopped at the park during the winter closures and we still have a fair bit more to do for a couple of new experiences in 2012. Our Lake Farm area is in the process of redevelopment and will no longer be a children’s farm but a fantastic new bird of prey centre with aviaries as well as indoor and outdoor display capability. The centre will be run by our current bird of prey experts from Gauntlet Bird of Prey in Cheshire but will be much bigger and better than in previous years and we hope will offer visitors a much better and possibly closer experience with these amazing birds. The bird of prey centre doesn’t have a permanent name yet so any suggestions are welcome.

Also planned for 2012 is a bat house, although this is likely to take a bit longer to set up as the animals will need to be quarantined for a number of months before we can allow them to be displayed with any barrier. We hope to have viewing areas set up to see the bats while in quarantine and hope to have a walk through exhibit later in the year.

Pricing for 2012 entry has been set and although we have had to increase standard entry prices we have managed to keep season ticket prices the same which is great news if you plan to visit the park a couple of times a year. Group rates have even seen a reduction to just £10 per person (of any age) so if you can get a bus together with 10 or more friends it will be a great value day out, for more information on 2012 pricing please visit the times and prices page on the website.

About safariuk

I am the Visitor Service Manager for UK tourist attraction Knowsley Safari Park. I have been in the post only for a few years and consider myself very fortunate to work in such a fantastic place. Not many people outside of Africa can take their lunch break while looking at elephants! This isn't the official blog for Knowsley Safari Park but my own views and opinions on things that may be happening at the park, in the leisure industry or anywhere else.
