Knuthenborg Safari park is a wildlife park on the island of Lolland in the south-east of Denmark, a couple of hours’ drive from Copenhagen near the highway to Hamburg. The animal park has founded by the eccentric count Eggert Christoffer Knuth after 1864 and it is one of Lolland’s major tourist attractions with over 200,000 visitors annually and is the largest safari park in northern Europe.
Many different species are represented (like giraffes, hippos and monkeys for example); for us the most exciting animals were the tigers. But the park also houses an arboretum, an aviary and large adventure and fun enclosures for children. The park also exhibits a good number of colourful birds from exotic regions.
The good part was that you could drive through the park at your own pace and stop where you like and no body was rushing you or telling you to hurry up. There is an excellent cafeteria, but you can also enjoy a packed lunch near one of the idyllic lakes. Please note that Knuthenborg Safari Park is not an all-year attraction: it’s open daily from end of April through September; to avoid disappointment, check their website for opening hours. I almost forgot the best part: you can rent bikes for 50kr per day.
In 2017 the park opened its first roller coaster, Kampala Express. The ride has six meters high and about one hundred meters long and is built by Gerstlauer Rides.
Knuthenborg Safari park is a place to go and have fun with the whole family, but the kids will definitely love it. If you get a nice. weather, then it can be a great idea for a picnic and lying under the sun.
