You are likely to see the animals from your Lodge, but due to the nature of our wildlife, sometimes they do rest in areas which are not easy to view, particularly during inclement weather or very hot weather, as we expect our animals to live and act as closely as their species do in the wild. Animal husbandry and health check-ups may also mean that some animals are not visible at certain times.
During the evening, you can sit and relax, enjoying the ambience of your Lodge. There is a widescreen TV in each lodge, which displays terrestrial TV channels.
Depending on which Lodge you are in, you may still see animals outside. They have access to their indoor housing, so can come and go as they wish. Whether they are outside your Lodge or in their night quarters will depend on the weather conditions and if the species you have chosen to stay with likes to roam in the dark. For example, our red pandas are more active at night. Please understand that we are unable to artificially light their habitat during dark hours, as our animals need to experience both day and night naturally for their own health and welfare.
