Getting splashed by sea lions. Catching a penguin show. Waking up to zebras, antelopes and ostriches grazing quietly in the Wanyama Village & Reserve. Chessington World of Adventures Resort is Britain’s Wildest Adventure. And whether you join the team as a seasonal worker or a seasoned professional, you’ll find life here is full of adventure too.
