Knowsley Safari Park, August

A couple of days ago we went to Knowsley Safari Park for our August visit. We are visiting them each month, and here is this month’s update.

Picnic

First of all, we’ve had a lovely vegan picnic in their picnic area. There are designated spots with parking and social distancing is very easy to be respected, even by small children. So, we’ve had a lovely time.

And, of course, some delicious (and vegan, obviously) desserts as well.

After that we went on the safari. It started with these gorgeous camels and, as you’ll see, it ended with them too.

We took the car friendly route because we did not have time to clean the car afterwards. It’s also fun to watch the monkeys trying to take pieces out of a car which is not ours.

This is their enclosure. On the left is where the car friendly route is and on the right is where the car-as-toys route is.

This is a kestrel, who was interested in the cars passing by. Obviously this is a free kestrel, just passing through the safari park.

The deer are gorgeous, aren’t they?

Moose was spending time looking at the cars, as he did each time we went there in the last months after the lockdown. He was not as interested in the cars before the lockdown though.

The ranger’s car seems to have had a close encounter (or a few) with some of the larger animals.

The lions were sleeping, again. This time they were relaxing at their place, not on the ground like last month.

The guy in the car told something to the camel. He came, but when he saw that there isn’t any food, he left, a bit annoyed. We called him too, but he didn’t even bother to look in our direction.

We did not go on the foot safari because we were a bit tired and had other plans too.

  1. I just popped over from Kelly’s blog. That picnic does look good! I wouldn’t want to mess with that camel he looks like he could do a great deal of damage to your car!

  2. Monkeys tend to make me a little nervous, so I have a feeling I would always take the car friendly route! Whatever those big brown cow looking things are…. it’s nice to see a baby. Do you often see young animals there? And I’ve probably asked this before, but does Festus ever go along with you for the visits?

    1. Some animals have loads of babies, like the monkeys, some less. I often see baby deer, cow-like animals also have 1-2 babies, the lions had cubs a few years ago. Bush dogs had babies this year, if I’m not mistaken and they were born last year, and so did the meerkats. Also the wolfs had puppies this year, but they are on the foot safari and we skipped that part this time.
      Dogs are not allowed in the Safari drive, as they might trigger the animals and an upset lion makes for a very dangerous one. 🙂 I think Festus would marvel at the camels and the rhinos, but he can see them only on TV.
