Comfortable and spacious accommodation with fantastic view over a pond of pelicans and storks plus wallabies and deer roaming freely near the lodge. Found everything clean with bed linen and towels smelling lovely and fresh. Cooking facilities a bit limited but hot when we visited so happy with salad type meals and there is a good size fridge to keep... More

We stayed for 3 nights on the way back up to Calais - I'm so glad we did. The lodge area is wonderful - peaceful, scenic and with Wallabies, little deer and (I think) Storks wandering freely around the lodge area and playground, we all loved it. The accommodation in a lodge is fairly basic but has everything you need... More

We stayed in a Cerza safari lodge for the first time (2 adults and 2 children, 8 and 4 years) and were not disappointed. It's a fantastic experience for all ages if you're interested in animals, but particularly lovely for children. Wallabies and deer roam freely around the grounds where the lodges are set and the children thought it was... More

We stayed for two nights in a newer Zoobservatoire. The kids (5 and 8) loved the place, out chasing wallabies each night, feeding the goats, repeated train rides, watching the monkeys/rhinos from the terrace. The price is a little steep, especially when you have to pay extra to enter, but the single entry covers your whole stay whether it is... More

Great time staying in Zoo Observatory, overlooking monkey island - an 'Out of Africa' feeling. In the Zoological Parc highly recommend VIP viewing and ' what the animals eat' education session, adored by the kids and adults! Environment lovely and relaxing and all animals well kept. A child's dream holiday stop. Couple of improvements re lodge would be an adult... More

We booked a Zoobervatory on a whim as we wanted to visit the zoo on our way through the region and I have to sat that it is one of the best experiences we have ever had despite the €180 per night price (which doesn't include breakfast or park entry!!!). We have never been woken up by a group of... More

I have to say we were VERY surprised at the quality of the accomodation in Cerza Safari Lodge!! We stayed in a zoo observatory looking out on the rhinos and deer. Clearly we were in the brand new section - the lodge has everything you need (incl microwave, good cooking facilities, fab bathroom, new funky decor etc) but its very... More

I offered my boyfriend a two day stay at the safari lodge for his birthday. We stay at a Zoobservatory. It's a kind of tiny hut with a kitchenette, small bathroom with shower, a small bedroom upstairs with steep and narrow stairs plus a terrace with splendid view on the land where animals such as rinoceros, wallabies, siamangs and deers...

The reviews here were very good but I couldn't get enough information from the Cerza website to book without first calling to confirm some things. A British woman on the phone was very supportive and told me that the stairs were gated, a cot could be provided, high-chair, etc, so everything le need for a toddler-proof two nights in the... More

We stayed here for two nights, great welcome and had a great view over looking the monkeys. Was lovely sitting on the balcony at night watching the animals wandering around. Then in the morning how the rhino just wanders out for the day. Lovely please to visit and even nicer if you get the chance to stay.
