Lion Experience

Lion Experience


Meet the Pride of Knowsley! Our Lion Experience offers you the chance to go behind the scenes at the lion enclosure to learn what it takes to look after these magnificent predators.

What will you get up to? For around one hour, you will be with the animal team preparing and supporting them with their morning duties as they get ready for the lions to be released into their enclosure. 

What will the Lion Experience include? 

  • An unforgettable 60-minute encounter with our incredible lions 
  • The opportunity to learn from our keepers & ask any questions
  • FREE admission into the safari for participant
  • 10% off an annual membership
  • 10% off in the gift shop or restaurant on the day of your experience 

The Lion Experience is available for adults and children aged 8 years and over. However, children under 18  must be accompanied by an adult who also has an experience voucher (we also offer 2 person experiences which must be bought if a child will be participating). 

Please note the accompanying adult may be required to go behind the scenes during the experience with the participant and it is therefore not suitable for the accompanying adult to be supervising another, non-participating child. 

We can allow a maximum of 2 people per experience from the same family, please see our 2 person lion experience if you wish to upgrade.

Our Lion experiences run on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year. The sessions must be pre-booked in advance using your voucher code. Please note these are non-transferable and non-refundable.


Please contact the team for latest availability and to book in your experience once you have purchased your voucher.
