Chessington World of Adventures Resort have submitted amended plans for their proposed safari lodges accommodation.

Proposed to be located to the north of the current Wanyama Reserve and Zufari ride area, and to the north west of the current Resort Hotels, the latest plans for the safari lodges propose 34 standard lodges, 31 of which will be of a standard layout, and three will be fully accessible. The lodges will be set out in a single cluster with the front of all the lodges facing in towards the centre of the circle. Located in the centre of the cluster will be a wooden themed play area which will be able to be seen from every lodge, easily enabling parents to keep their eyes on their children.

Each lodge will have a layout similar to that seen in The Enchanted Village at Alton Towers Resort, with the entrance to the lodge leading directly into the adult sleeping area containing a double bed, and the bathroom and separate children’s sleeping area, including bunk beds and a pull out truckle bed, towards the rear. At the front of each lodge will also be an external timber deck allowing guests to sit directly outside their lodge should they wish. The external appearance of each lodge will be designed to complement the already established ‘African/safari style’ of the Wanyama Reserve and exisiting Resort hotels.
