If you're not one of the fortunate few going away this Easter, then why not visit an African safari that's literally on your doorstep...well within the M25 at least.
Chessington World of Adventures has just launched Zufari, a new African safari based in the heart of Surrey. It's equivalent to the size of 15 football pitches and includes a host of different animals like zebras, rhinos and giraffes.
Visitors will be driven around the authentic African landscape in a monster-off road safari truck.
