UK Safari Park Forced To Delay Launch Of Luxury Lodges Due To Coronavirus

UK Safari Park Forced To Delay Launch Of Luxury Lodges Due To Coronavirus

West Midlands Safari Park has announced the grand opening of its new safari lodges has had to be pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The swanky safari accommodation was due to open in February, but amid the uncertainty of England's ongoing national lockdown, the date has now had to be postponed until Easter.

A statement from the safari park said: "It is with a heavy heart that we announce our Safari Lodges opening date will once again be delayed, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We very much hope to be open for Easter, and plan Friday 2nd April 2021 as our revised opening date, providing this is in line with Government guidance."

Located right on the edge of the park's elephant and cheetah zones, the lodges are set to feature direct views of the animals.

With eight rooms that can sleep up to five guests, each has an open plan living room as well as outdoor seating areas and balconies - meaning you can enjoy your morning brew in the company of some of the park's very special residents, including young male elephant Sutton, his mum Five, and his aunt Latabe.
