A Free Father’s Day Experience at Knowsley Safari

Knowsley Safari has Father’s Day wrapped up this year with a ‘dads go free’ day out on Father’s Day weekend (Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June).

Dads can get in free to enjoy a wild day out with the kids, but if he’d prefer the day to himself, then mum can bring them and go free instead, as the offer is for one adult in each car to go free with a full-paying child.

There will be another proud father on the Safari Drive this year as yak dad Harry (7) and mum Mila (6) recently celebrated the birth of a young male yak on 25 April.

Keepers say the new calf has a cheeky personality and is showing signs he’ll be a confident and independent yak. But for the time being, he can often be seen interacting with the nearby Père David’s Deer or following his sister Dotty around as she chases the other animals and causes a little chaos.

One adult goes free per car with a full-paying child. Offer applies to visits on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2024 only.

Bookings must be made in advance online and can’t be used in conjunction with any other offer.
