Our ZSL London Zoo Lodges is a hotel with a difference where you get the chance to sleep overnight at ZSL London Zoo.

What to expect

Guests will arrive at ZSL London 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 exploring the Land of the Lions exhibit next door to your lodge.

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. 

Following your first tour it will be time for dinner, which is a delicious two course buffet 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 meet and feed some of our nocturnal animals that are rarely awake during the day.

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 a behind the scenes tour of the zoo to find out how our keepers prepare for a busy day looking after our animals.

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

Bought this gift voucher for my son's birthday. He was over the moon with the idea of staying the night in a zoo !! He hasn't booked it yet due to the lockdown not being completely lifted, so I can't give a review of the actual experience. Will update in here once he has been .


by Louise B

Much like an earlier Review. I received the Voucher very quickly. I think it could have been more nicely packaged, and the greetings note maybe put into a card. I cant comment on the Experience yet, but I know my sister-in-law will be thrilled.


by Samantha Baker

Bought for 50th birthday present and I know it will be amazing as I did the Zir lion lodge stay myself and found the whole experience was phenomenal!
Dropped from 5* to 4* due to price now double last year (disappointing)


by Jacqueline Barchou

Packaging a little disappointing. Expected a more attractive presentation card. Voucher not used yet so cannot comment re lodge/tour etc.
