Enjoy a one-of-a-kind luxury wildlife experience with a stay at Jamala Wildlife Lodge, an indulgent luxury lodge at Canberra’s National Zoo & Aquarium centre. During your stay you will come face to face with a whole host of exotic and endangered species and learn how to help their survival. If you’re a wildlife enthusiast or have an interest in conservation, this experience is definitely for you.

Choose from different styles of accommodation, each with its own unique wildlife experience. All suites feature gorgeous African-inspired interiors, dreamy king size beds, and premium amenities. Whichever option you choose, the nightly rate includes your accommodation, all food and beverages, and exclusive tours of the zoo. 

uShaka Lodge 

Boasting seven unique guest rooms, each with its own wildlife experience, uShaka Lodge offers a relaxing African themed environment complete with fine wooden carvings, artworks and African artefacts. The lodge contains a stunning lounge and dining area, a relaxing pool and spa, as well as an outdoor entertaining area situated only metres from the edge of Lake Burley Griffin. Choose a room where you can experience close encounters with the big cats, a bedroom with views into a 5 metre deep ocean aquarium, a lemur room with direct views into their enclosure, or a room above the shark tank that is only for the brave! 

Giraffe TreeHouses

Set amongst lush African shrubbery and trees, the Giraffe TreeHouses overlook the giraffe enclosure and allow you to interact with the friendly herd. At feeding time you’ll have the opportunity to feed one of the local residents, Hummer, from your balcony or in the enclosure (depending on what he prefers on the day!). All TreeHouses enjoy splendid views of the Giraffe herd, luxury king size beds and beautifully appointed ensuite bathrooms with free standing bath tubs. 

Jungle Bungalows

Luxuriously designed, the Jungle Bungalows are separate suites that adjoin different enclosures in the property. Watch through a glass wall as tigers and lions pass by the foot of your bed, or soak in your bath tub and gaze at the majestic Malayan Sun Bears as they nest beside the glass window. Regardless of where you are in your suite, you are but a step away from some of the most amazing animals on the planet. Each bungalow features a king size bed, luxurious bath robes, flat screen television and a well-appointed ensuite bathroom.

The Jungle Bungalows can be booked through our Getaway Specialists. Please contact us for availability and rates.

Note: Due to safety regulations and the nature of the included tours, an overnight stay at Jamala Wildlife Lodge is generally only suitable for children aged six and over. As the lodge is set within a zoo, you should expect to hear wildlife noises at night and throughout your stay.
