Design Re-Invention. Bill Bensley’s Human Zoo

Category: Hotels|Real estate, Posted:21 May 2020 | 14:00 pm

Following the creation of the Four Seasons Tented Camp and Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand and his own Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild luxury tented camp in Cambodia, Bill Bensley is currently designing his most ambitious and innovative wildlife conservation concept to date – Worldwild China or as it’s affectionately become known – The (Luxury) Human Zoo.

This exciting “Animals First” concept will prioritize animal welfare while developing unique conservation conscious learning experience for guests and visitors.  For the animals it will be place for Respect, Refuge and Rehabilitation while for humans, it is being created for Education, Excitement and Experiences.

Set in 2000 acres in Wuchuan in southern China’s Guangdong province, the wildlife sanctuary and reserve will have 7 luxury hotels with a total of 2000 rooms, scheduled to open in 2022.  Worldwild will touch on everything that Bensley is deeply passionate about; sustainability, conservation, wildlife protection, education and unique design.
