BBC Worldwide and Longleat Safari & Adventure Park are teaming up to create a series of Deadly-themed features at the Wiltshire attraction.

The four-year plan will see areas of the park transformed in the style of the BBC's Deadly branded programmes, including Deadly 60, Deadly Top 10s, Deadly 360, Deadly Art and Deadly Mission Madagascar.

From Easter, visitors to the park will be invited to go on a Deadly Safari to discover some of Longleat's deadliest creatures. Presenter Steve Backshall has voiced a brand new guide to the safari, which incorporates facts and experiences from his on screen adventures.

Also due this year, a Deadly Challenge zone will see aspiring Deadly Adventurers pitch their skills against those of some of the world's most lethal creatures.

"We're delighted to be working with the BBC on this exciting project and having the opportunity to bring 'Deadly' to our visitors," said David Bradley, Longleat CEO. "With so many amazing animals here at Longleat, the new 'Deadly Adventure' experiences will give our visitors the chance to experience first hand all the exciting elements of the TV programme right here in the wilds of Wiltshire."

Deadly Adventure at Longleat will open from March 31st, with special seasonal events also planned over the 2013 season.
