A roar-some Adventure this Chinese New Year at Knowsley Safari

2022 Year of the Tiger starts on 1st February 2022 and with Merseyside’s Knowsley Safari open Wednesday to Sunday, what better way to celebrate than getting just inches away from real tigers, in their 10,000 square metre Russian-inspired Tiger Trail.

Miron and Sinda are some of the largest cats in the world. Amur tigers can grow to over three metres in length and are the epitome of bravery and strength, tiger traits which, according to the Chinese calendar, people born during a tiger year are supposed to have.

Tiger years include 2022, 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974 and 1962. People born during one of these years are said to be expressive and unpredictable with a stubborn streak. Like a predator chasing its prey the tiger does not falter, making quick decisions.

Located on the Foot Safari, the Tiger Trail is the largest enclosure of its type in Europe with uninterrupted views through several huge windows, where guests are literally inches from these big cats.
