Longleat is to offer visitors to the safari park the option of having their cars bubble-wrapped to protect them from their infamous troop of car-mad monkeys.
The Wiltshire attraction will be offering the special service to motorists before they enter the monkey ‘Drive-Thru’.
It will be available as an additional charged option with drivers pulling in to a designated wrap zone where staff will be on hand to carefully cover their vehicles with protective plastic.
On exiting the Safari Park it will be removed and recycled.
The vast majority of our visitors love the experience of driving through our monkey enclosure, and getting the opportunity to enjoy their antics at extremely close quarters.
However some drivers are put off by the prospect of having their car covered in the highly-curious and, occasionally, slightly destructive simians.
The bubble wrap will provide them with extra security and the confidence to brave the drive-thru safe in the knowledge their prized vehicle will remain untouched.
True or False? Is this an April Fool?
Giant Chinese lanterns that lit up Longleat this winter are to be auctioned for charity.
150,000 people came to see the illuminated designs at the Wiltshire estate. Some will be kept for next Christmas but 19 animal-themed creations will be sold to raise money for Tusk, the Duke of Cambridge's African wildlife conservation charity.
The online sale runs until 11 February. You can find out more here.
