Carnivore Keeper For The Day
This experience was awesome, I would definitely recommend it!

Early Saturday morning we were the first group to enjoy this extra experience. It was a surprise for my son's birthday after staying at the resort hotel. The staff were brilliant and played along until we got to the paddock where the giraffes were. The experience was one we all would never forget and enjoyed every minute. Thanks to everyone. Highly recommend to anyone.

Wanyama Village & Reserve
I sprung this trip to the park as a suprise as my partner and her daughter had never been before. The whole experience from the trip up to leaving was so memorable for us all. So much so that I am booking again for Grace to spend her 13th birthday here. The rooms were clean and pleasant and the view over the park was first rate. The pool was great fun and the evening meal was first class. The day spent in the park was brilliant, our favourite ride being the Vampire - I even managed to lure my partner on for a go. A really great fun day and can't wait to return.

SEA LIFE Centre
I come to Chessington quite often. The SEA LIFE centre amazes me and my mum, we love it. We watched most of the shows as we stayed at the resort for 2 nights and 3 days.
