Chessington World of Adventures is owned by Merlin Entertainment, the largest European entertainments company. Merlin Entertainment runs 99 attractions in 22 countries over four continents. Chessington World of Adventures launched its Chessington Conservation Fund in 2011 to raise money to protect the future of wildlife and nature through conservation work and education both in the local community and abroad. Using donations, the Chessington Conservation Fund has purchased an area of land the same size as Chessington World of Adventures in Ecuador – 128 acres, and has paid a ranger to protect that land.
Chessington World of Adventures also has a resort hotel which is the perfect base camp for your vacation adventure. It has safari-themed rooms, an indoor swimming pool, gym, and spa and is located just steps away from the park. In addition, the hotel has a fabulous restaurant, the Zafari Bar and Grill.
