Giraffe and rhino lodges opening this week where you can sleep next to animals

New giraffe and rhino lodges are opening in the UK tomorrow (Friday, April 22).

The West Midland Safari Park will give guests the opportunity to sleep right next to the animals.

A capacity of up to six people can stay in the white rhino lodges which are the park's biggest yet.

The ground floor has an open-plan living space, secluded chill out nest with a double bed and balcony offering views of the animals.

As for the upper floor, this has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a secondary balcony with boasts panoramic views.

The giraffe lodges sleep up to five guests allowing people to come eye-to-eye with the animals.

But the giraffe breaks are already sold out until October.

On-site chefs can prepare your breakfast and dinner then deliver it to your room so you can enjoy amazing views while eating.

Other extras include free parking, 24-hour concierge service and free WiFi, and a stay at the lodges.

Visitors can also get admission to the park and wristbands for the rides at the theme park.

There is some availability remaining for the rhino lodges with prices starting at £490 per night for two guests.

The West Midland Safari Park already has eight lodges – six in the elephant park and two near the cheetahs.

It also announced plans to offer luxury overnight stays with Sumatran tigers.

So if it goes to plan, there could be tiger lodges very soon.

Managing Director Chris Kelly said: "Alongside the lodges, we have upgraded and built brand-new facilities and habitats for the giraffes and white rhinos.

"The rhinos have moved into their new home and have settled in well. The giraffes are a bit more tentative in nature and needed coaxing in with some of their favourite treats.

"They are enjoying exploring their new surroundings and seem to be very captivated by their new human neighbours, often watching them, curiously!

"I hope our guests enjoy their experience with us and we look forward to starting out next stage of development with the Tiger Lodges, which we hope to open later in the year."
