Stayed one night in a savannah view room. Room itself is beautifully done and very comfortable considering the walls are actually canvass. There is a lot of attention to detail, a nice comfortable bed and an amazing big bath. The room looks out onto a paddock with a bunch of giraffes and some zebra, which is pretty cool, the poor...

The behind the scenes tours were really interesting, the food was great and the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, helpful & all around great to deal with. We arrived early the 1st day & did some cycling around the zoo, joined the... More

This was everything we hoped for and more. It all comes from the commitment of the zoo staff and there is respect all round, this is the real thing, authentic zoo and holiday experience. I imagine a safari in Africa would feel similar on a larger scale if course. The extra tours were awesome. The bikes included etc meant package... More

Zoofari was a brilliant experience - the three behind the scenes tours were enjoyable, and it was great to sit on the savannah lodge 'balcony' and watch giraffe and zebra wandering around less than 100m away. The savannah view lodge was luxurious, and very warm even though it got down to 3-4 overnight. Lovely deep bathtub, fabulous rainfall shower, huge... More

Absolutely the best $1000 I have spent on the family this year! Great that 25% will go to animal conservation. Great Zoo, great accomodation, action packed, delicious food, happy kids, awesome showers, comfy beds, reasonably priced minibar. And spectacular views to wake up too - giraffe, zebra, eland wandering the Savannah - wished we could have stayed longer.

The lodge was luxurious but even better where else will you get giraffe, elands and zebras looking in to your room to see if you are awake? I notice that another reviewer down rated... More

Everything was 5 star, the only downfall was the heater in our "tent" but other than that, the food, the experience, the knowledge was absolutely amazing! Our guide, Emma, was a wealth of knowledge, especially about the Rhino's...it was WOW. Highly recommend!!

What a truly special, unique treat! Imagine your own luxurious "tent"-like lodge (yes, 5 star everything - bedding, shower facilities, plush bath-robes, slippers, beautiful ambience that comes from great timber, fantastic meals in a wonderful "common" area, private group tours of the zoo by knowledgeable, passionate staff) and looking out to this savannah with giraffes, zebras, buffalo literally at your...
