Found this amazing BnB on Trip Advisor, and it totally exceeded my expectations. We arrived on a Friday just a few minutes before the 1 pm tour of the zoo which is included in the stay. The guide Alex was very knowledgeable about the animals, and we enjoyed seeing them during the one hour tour. After the tour we hung... More

An enjoying break without the complication of real travel. We met our adult son there and had a nice visit without wifi. We booked during Spring Break and were lucky to get a bungalow, however I would have enjoyed one with a view of the elephant pen much more. We took the 1:00 tour, then checked into our bungalow, then... More

We took our 7 year old son who loves animals so he was super excited. We were told to check in at 3:00. The tents are cool, they're clean and private, we stayed in the giraffe bungalow and it had an upfront great view of elephants, water buffalo and zebra. They only walked around 2 animals at 3:30-4:30 and it... More

We had a great time and used a Groupon deal that made it sweeter. We stayed in Cabin #8, home of the Leopard. Really nice cabin, spacious, nicely decorated and wonderful views from all of the windows. We fed an elephant breakfast which was super fun. We enjoyed taking the tour of the animals in the zoo. The only negative... More

What a fun place to visit! I'd seen their website, but a Groupon deal, was a big incentive. We stayed in Cabin #7, the Bear's Den. The two beds were advertised as extra long twin beds, but I thought they looked more like double size. Very comfortable with heated mattress pads. There was also a portable heater, that kept the...

this was a truly AMAZING trip!!!! the cabins really are canvas so bring warm clothes and slippers! but that adds to the wonderful feeling of the trip. the cabins are luxurious and comfortable, just chilly at night. The animals are beautiful and I could have sat there all day and watched them from our deck. the morning elephant delivery of... More

We stayed 2 nights which I highly recommend. Our "tent" was #5 with the zebra theme. We had a good view of the "playground" and watched the elephants, zebra, ostrich, and water buffalo. The room had a coffee maker and small refrigerator. Space heater was provided, but although quite cool at night, we only used the electric mattress heating pad.... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We stayed in bungalow #6 which is Josef's Jungle. It is more isolated than the others which we loved. We looked forward each morning to getting a visit from Butch the elephant that came along with the continental breakfast that was given to us both mornings. We went on the Crunch... More

Our friends gave a us an overnight stay here and we had Cabins #3 and #4. We did our homework before we got here so we selected these two cablins as they were closest to the elephant yard. The entire experience was just like the majority of tripadvisor guest who had a favorable time here have described. We looked into... More

This place is really fantastic. The only mistake we made was staying over New Year's Eve. We just happened to stay in the middle of the coldest, cold spell of the winter. It was in the low 30's! That's our fault. The do have a good space heater and heated mattress pads. But, it pretty much means you want to... More
