Today we catch up on the animals in the park, with Eland Antelope youngsters and a Giraffe close-up encounter! Don’t forget to let us know what you think and what else you would like us to cover!

Today our daily update includes European bison, how we work safely in the current virus situation and developments in our very own Bat ‘murder mystery’!

After a day of technical issues yesterday, we are back up and running with another episode. Once again we headed out into the park to see what we could find.

I think we are all a little depressed with the constant stream of advise and news about the Coronovirus and of course, we do all have to take that seriously. But here at Wild Arena we have been trying to think of events that we can offer at this time and ‘One to One’ sessions are perfect! You can’t get a smaller group size than one and with our extra measures for cleaning and hand sanitizing you couldn’t be in safer hands. Let’s also be honest, we like many other business’s are struggling with the shutdown, so these really are crazy prices and absolutely ‘one time’ offers to see us through these very challenging times. So if you can support us and fancy a great day out photographing these amazing subjects then just read on!

We think the Lions here at Knowsley are really special and to celebrate this we are offering 10% off our Lion Photography Mornings!

Knowsley, very uniquely, has two separate prides of Lions, the first consisting of 6 individuals, is headed up by Sam and Jasmine, whilst the second pride of 5 Lions, falling under male Scooter and his mother Masai, are found next door. These two different groups, give us very varied picture opportunities with wider shots of Sam and Jasmine’s pride are out in the drive through section, and portrait shots of Scooter and Masai’s pride in their second enclosure. 

These session start early to give us time with the lions before the park is open to the general public. It also means the ‘drive through’ pride will only have just been let out, so they should be super busy, patrolling around their territory checking nothing has gone amiss overnight.

This session also includes your entrance fee to the Safari Park, so you will have plenty of time left to see the rest of the animals at your own pace!

Normal price £69 (members £55.20)
Special offer price £62.10 (members £49.68)
