Back by popular demand Yorkshire Wildlife Park‘s Camp Lion experience is a unique staycation like no other. Wake up as the sun rises over Yorkshire with bird songs and lions ROARING!
As the sun shines we can’t think about anything else besides getting out into the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and the wild Yorkshire Wildlife Park campsite is right up our street.
Not only can you enjoy the thrill of a wild sleepover just a stone’s throw from the amazing animals but then visit the park during the day and get up close and personal with gorgeous Amur Tigers, majestic Polar Bears plus many more.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park took to Facebook to announce its Camp Lion camping experience dates running from Friday 14th July to Sunday 3rd September.
They wrote: “Due to popular demand, we’ve added Saturday 5th, 12th and 19th of August to our Camp Lion camping experience at Yorkshire Wildlife Park!”
“Don’t miss out on the chance to spend the night surrounded by the incredible sights and sounds of the park’s wildlife, from the roar of lions to the songs of birds as the sun rises over Yorkshire.”
“This unique camping adventure is the perfect way to connect with nature and create unforgettable memories with your family and friends.”
You camp at Yorkshire Wildlife Park for just £80 a night, and be a part of the park’s ‘Roar and Snore’ activity, where you can pitch up in their campsite and wake with the lions each morning! The lions were re-homed from a Romanian zoo which had a lack of funds, and they now live on a seven-acre reserve.
Perfect for families, each pitch accommodates up to six people. Either one large tent or two smaller tents can fit on the 15m x 15m camping spots.
There’s also a spot for your car with each pitch, so you can just park up and let the fun begin. The campsite is situated close to the park, and is close enough to hear the lion’s roar…
But don’t worry, their lovely little reserve is enclosed, so you won’t be waking up to any giant cats pinching your snacks.
In terms of filling your tums, there’s a choice of bringing your own food and using a camping stove or raised bbq, or you can grab some food at their on-site pizzeria and enjoy a few drinks after 6pm, as well as take advantage of the breakfast wagon in the mornings.
Tickets are available to purchase from 16th July. You can also get into the park for an exclusive camper two-day park ticket with unlimited access from 0900-1800 each day for £34.50 for adults £31.50 for children.
With almost 400 animals and 70 different species such as Amur Leopards, Amur Tigers, Baboons, Giraffes and Black Rhinos – it really is an experience like no other.
