12:57pm Friday 8th February 2013 in News
The BBC and Longleat Safari & Adventure Park are joining forces to create a spectacular new series of Deadly-themed features at the world famous Wiltshire attraction.
The four-year plan will see areas of the park transformed in the style of the BBC’s successful Deadly branded programmes which include Deadly 60, Deadly Top 10s, Deadly 360, Deadly Art and most recently Deadly Mission Madagascar as seen on CBBC.
Philip Murphy, managing director of BBC Worldwide Live Events, said: “Bringing a real-life Deadly adventure to Longleat Safari & Adventure Park is a fantastic opportunity that demonstrates what the Deadly brand is all about, encouraging children to explore the natural world and discover its wonders for themselves.”
From Easter visitors to the park will be invited to go on a Deadly Safari discovering some of Longleat’s deadliest creatures, and presenter Steve Backshall has voiced a brand new guide to the safari which incorporates fascinating facts and experiences from his on screen adventures.
Visitors will be given a special Safari Activity Book full of information and tasks to test their spotter skills as they explore the park, learning about vital predator prey relationships that exist in the wild and encountering some of Longleat’s most famous deadly residents including lions, tigers and wolves.
Also coming in 2013 is a Deadly Challenge zone for young 'adventurers' and check points along the way will feature quizzes and challenges from Steve Backshall who will want to see what each adventurer has learned about the deadly creatures they’re tracking.
Deadly Adventure at Longleat will open from March 31.
