Do you love Lions as much as we do? Well if you do, why not join us for a special morning photography workshop with these majestic animals!

The aim of this session is to concentrate solely on the two Lion Prides here at Knowsley Safari first thing in the morning as they are starting their day. We’ll get exclusive access to the park before it opens to the public with the prides in their overnight enclosures and also in the drive through as they explore and check over their territory. Your highly qualified guide will be on hand during the session to ensure you get the most out of the picture opportunities.

After arrival at the park you will be briefed by your guide over a welcome tea/coffee. We will then load everyone into our 4X4 vehicles and head up to the Lion reserves before the park is open to the public. This is the perfect time to see these magnificent animals as they are always at their most active in the mornings and late evenings. Knowsley currently has 2 prides and we should get opportunities to see them all over the course of the session. The highlight should be seeing the main group entering the 4-acre, drive through reserve from the exclusive point of view of our VIP 4X4’s. Because we will be in the section before any visitors, we can have free movement to find the best positions for pictures, plus we have special permission to carefully shoot through open windows for the very best potential images.

You can then conclude a fun session with a relaxed mid-morning coffee break and the chance to ask your guides any cameras questions you might have or get some professional feedback on the pictures you have taken.

Each session includes admission to the Safari Park, so you can kick start your day out with the Lions, before spending the rest of you day at leisure in the park. With hundreds of animals and regular scheduled displays, there should be loads to keep you busy through the day!

Each guest will also be supplied with a learning summary card and a 10% discount voucher of any future booking.
