Longleat is returning to our TV screens in a brand new series of Animal Park…

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label="text" _builder_version="3.0.105" background_layout="light"]

The new ‘Summer Specials’ series will be shown at 9.15am on weekdays until August 24, with presenters Ben Fogle and Kate Humble joining Jean Johansson for another heart-warming glimpse into life behind the scenes as Longleat’s keepers and animals prepare for another long hot summer.

Among the stories featured in the new series is the unexpected arrival of a new cheetah cub and an abandoned baby wallaby which needs to be hand-reared by its keeper. There will also be a special tribute to Nico – one of the world’s oldest male gorillas – whose death earlier this year hit keepers particularly hard.

Kate Humble said: “Every year I look forward to returning to Animal Park. The animals and many of the people who work there have become like family over the many years I have worked there, and our annual reunion is always a highlight.”

Ben Fogle added: “I’m so thrilled to return to Longleat for the latest series of Animal Park. The feeling of excitement I get walking through the gates has never left me and I can’t wait to see some familiar faces.”
