Two Norfolk nature reserves have struck a partnership to offer visitors a deal on admission.

Pensthorpe Natural Park, in Fakenham, and Watatunga, a wildlife reserve-based outside King’s Lynn are offering people 20pc off their next visit to the other. 

Situated amongst 170-acres of woodland, grassland, and lakes, Watatunga is a new wildlife reserve that opened last August.

The reserve provides guided tours so guests can learn about rare bird species and different animals, including deer, antelope, and buffalo roaming at their will in this unique environment.

Edward Pope, founder of Watatunga, said: “The core values of Watatunga and Pensthorpe are closely aligned.
