Safari lodges and savannah set for go ahead at Chester Zoo

Safari style lodges overlooking giraffes grazing on a savannah have been given the go ahead at Chester Zoo. Once built, some of the lodges will overlook the lake while others will overlook a savannah-style enclosure complete with roaming giraffes.

Cheshire West and Chester Council's planning department has rubber-stamped an application for 51 accommodation lodges along with a two storey reception building with bar and restaurant,  an orientation lodge and groundworks for creation of a lake.

The plans include four types of lodges to accommodate between four and six people, with most being based on traditional timber African safari lodge designs.
