Taste the adventure with a stay at Bristol’s quirkiest luxury, hotel suite


Animal experiences and boutique accommodation - stay and dine in Britain’s first safari lodge in a zoo at Bristol Zoo Gardens.

Ever dreamt what it would be like to have the zoo to yourself? Well ponder no more. Bristol Zoo Gardens’ new boutique accommodation, ‘The Lodge’ offers the luxury of a secluded safari-style lodge with exotic animals just outside your window – the first of its kind in Britain.

Eat breakfast with the gorillas, take a behind-the-scenes twilight tour with one of the zoo’s knowledgeable keepers and relax as your private chef prepares a delicious four-course dinner served on the balcony, overlooking the Zona Brazil enclosure.

Other perks for guests include exclusive out-of-hours access to the zoo and feeding experiences after the day visitors have gone home. Wake up to the sound of roaring lions and watch tapirs from your balcony, before exploring the zoo for a day – an indulgent, unique experience.
