You will feel like you’re on safari when you wake up in luxurious Animal View Lodges, nestled on the edge of a vast savannah where giraffe and antelope roam. Zoofari Lodge and the Zoo are set amongst native bushland, allowing you to immerse yourself in the great outdoors and see a number of free ranging native species.

The Zoofari Lodge experience provides the opportunity to see exotic and endangered African wildlife, and even get up close to a number of animals on exclusive behind-the-scenes tours.

Zoofari Lodge is a unique escape for couples and families alike – with premium accommodation and the opportunity to unwind combined with activities beyond the included tours and encounters, including a saltwater swimming pool, library, and kid’s activities.

The accommodation options are similarly generous, ranging from the family friendly tents of Billabong Camp, to self-contained Savannah cabins (sleeping up to six with free wi-fi) and Zoofari Lodge (10 comfortable lodges) right on the cusp of the antelope and giraffe-filled enclosures. There are plenty of chances to interact with the animals too; hear a talk from a dingo keeper or spotlight African wild dogs after sunset. Zoofari Lodge guests have access to a saltwater pool and bike hire is included too. Dinner itself can be a culinary adventure with crocodile and kangaroo on the menu.
