Are you an animal lover?

Well, you can experience an incredible safari-type experience from the safety of the UK. And, we don’t just mean spotting grassland animals from a Jeep…

Yorkshire Wildlife Park is allowing guests the opportunity to camp with big cats for just £50.

The park’s “Roar and Snore” staycation package means you can pitch your tent just away from the lion enclosure.

Imagine a camping trip where you’re woken by the roar of an African lion in the morning.

That’s a pretty impressive experience.

The lions were rehomed from the Oradea Zoo in Romania and are now happily looked after on a seven acre reserve.

The camping package is perfect for Brits who are bored by lockdown but not quite ready to jet off yet.

You’ll be given a 10m x 15m spot to pitch your tent on.

That should fit one large or two smaller tents – perfect for the whole family.

Up to six people can be easily accommodated in the space.

Access to the washroom and shows is included and there’s a breakfast wagon and pizzeria nearby for brekkie and dinner.

Camping stoves or barbecues are also allowed.

Tickets will set you back £50 per camping spot and you can add a second night for £40.

You can buy yours from July 22.

And don't worry, the lions will stay in their enclosure for the whole time.

If you want to enter the park itself, you can buy reduced cost tickets priced at £15.50 per child and £19.50 per adult.

You can also book an exclusive out-of-hours safari tour of the park to enjoy the animals in privacy.

The tour will cost £11.50 per adult and just £8.50 per child.

They take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 7.45am and on Sundays at 6.30pm.

There are over 400 animals to spot, including 70 different species.

These include leopards, tigers, monkeys, polar bears, giraffes, endangered Black rhinos and yes… African lions.

Coronavirus safety measures have been put in place – these include two metre distancing rules and additional cleaning programs.

Buy your tickets on the Yorkshire Wildlife Park website.
