KNOWSLEY Safari is the king of the jungle after being named the best safari park in the UK in Trip Advisor’s Travellers’ Choice awards for zoos and aquariums.

The accolade follows an ongoing programme of investment in the park’s 550 acres and careful husbandry of the 700 wild animals in their care.

Rachel Scott, head of marketing for Knowsley Safari, said: “To be considered the best safari park in the UK by the Great British public is an incredible honour.

“We are continuously working on ways to enrich our visitor experience with additions such as our new ‘vulture breakfast’ and our upcoming honeybee centre.

We offer visitors a truly wild experience every time they visit.”
