A new attraction will be coming to the UK next year. Safari lodges are being built within views of white rhinos and giraffes.

West Midland Safari Park has big plans for next year.

The planning permission for their new accommodation have been confirmed, and they will soon be the home of eight brand new lodges.

Planned in the giraffe and rhino habitats, the new lodges will bring guests closer to the animals.

Britons who want to get extremely close to the giraffes will be able to do so from the first floor balcony of the giraffe lodges.

Each lodge will sleep up to four people and the price includes breakfast and dinner as well as admission to the park for two days.

The white rhino lodges will be a unique experience.

The lodges will also sleep four people and will be open plan.

The balcony will allow guests to see the rhino right from their accommodation.

West Midland Safari Park already has a lot of successful lodges.

The red panda cottages are already sold out for this year and most of 2022.

There are also elephant and cheetah lodges.

Britons can pick the animals they’d rather be close to and spend time in close proximity.

On Tripadvisor, Nicky W said: “Out of this world what an experience. We stayed in Masai Lodge and the Cheetahs never left our window until they settled down for the night.

“We had binoculars they weren’t needed.

“To see these beautiful animals up close and watch them for hours on end was such a privilege.

“It was worth every penny.”

Anthony T said: “Waking up on a morning and looking at the elephant from your balcony was just out of this world, one for the bucket list.”

The cheetah and elephant lodges are already fully booked until November 2022.

Britons who want to book an animal lodge may have to wait for the new rhino and giraffe lodges to take bookings.

The new lodges are planning to open next year, and booking will be open by the end of the year.

Managing Director, Chris Kelly said: “We will be installing eight new lodges, four of which will offer spectacular views of the white rhinos, with the other half bringing you face-to-face with our beautiful giraffes.”

Prices for the lodges start at £147 per child per night and £171 per adult per night.
