The Ultimate London Zoo Sleepover at this London Zoo Hotel
The Gir Lion Lodge is the location for the Safari Sleepover at London Zoo.
Tucked away within the new Land of the Lions development, you and the kids will sleep in bespoke luxury lodges inspired by the charming hotels you’d find in the area of the lion’s native Gir Forest in India.
You’ll be fed too!
Enjoy a lip-smacking 2-course dinner, AND full English breakfast, included as part of your stay.
But the most important part of the experience are the exclusive tours at this zoo overnight stay.
You’ll head out at sunset by torchlight, and again early morning before the zoo opens and be taken behind the scenes of London Zoo by happy hosts.
These knowledgable folk from Regents Park Zoo can’t wait to share a bunch of fun facts and insights into the zoo’s wildlife, and to show you animals that are up at night, and other animals that wake up at night!
