What to expect

Guests will arrive at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo where they will be greeted by our friendly hosts who will show you to your private lodge inside the zoo.

Depending on arrival time guests are welcome to explore the zoo or relax in their lodge, with the option to enjoy a complimentary glass of prosecco whilst overlooking your view of the spectacular Chiltern Downs.

Once the zoo has closed you will be taken on your first sunset tour led by one of our passionate and knowledgeable hosts to see a variety of different animals including rhinos and lions. 

Following your first tour it will be time for dinner, which is a delicious two course meal with your fellow guests and hosts.

After dinner your hosts will take you on a torchlight stroll through the zoo to see who is still awake and to search the skies for bats.

Then it is time to return to your lodge to relax and enjoy a good night’s sleep whilst listening to the sounds of the zoo.

An early morning wake-up lets you enjoy a full English breakfast before heading off on to feed some of our animals their breakfast.

The experience finishes with the opening of the zoo where you are free to explore at your leisure, or head off to ZSL London Zoo to see more amazing animals including gorillas.

Was happy to get this for my Wife and daughter for Christmas, but when booking it said you can get 15% discount if you buy two packages so I added a second experience but did not get the discount.

I bought the adult couples package as a gift. The process was all pretty straightforward.
