A £7.5m safari park complete with wildebeeste, flamingo and a host of wild animals could be created in Norfolk, bringing hundreds of jobs to the county.

The visionary behind the new Watlington Safari Park, near King’s Lynn, believes it would be the first of its kind of the United Kingdom, bringing £3.57m per year to West Norfolk’s economy and providing a popular attraction for residents and visitors alike.

In a brochure sent to villagers Edward Pope, the man behind the idea, said: “I am passionate about the conservation of endangered animals and birds.

“For several years I have been provided a refuge and breeding programme for deer and antelope at my home in Norfolk.

“Now I want to build on that work by expanding this refuge to create an inspirational centre for education, a visitor experience that people can enjoy and a site for extraordinary wildlife encounters.”
