Enjoy breath-taking views in a Hippo Lodge
An overnight stay which cannot be experienced anywhere else in the UK.
These four luxurious lodges can accommodate up to either five or six people.
Each two-storey lodge has a large, open-plan living area with lounge and dining spaces.
The two accessible lodges have a double bed downstairs, which can be transformed into two single beds, and then an upstairs bedroom sleeps three guests, on two single beds and one raised platform bed.
The other two lodges have a downstairs bedroom with two bunk beds and an upstairs bedroom with a super king-sized bed.
All Hippo Lodges feature a spacious balcony with an outside seating area allowing you to relax, overlooking our hippos as they explore in their new area, featuring mud wallows and pools.
Watch the UK’s largest pod of hippopotamus, right outside your Lodge.
Native to Africa, hippos are the third largest land mammals. They are strong swimmers and can hold their breath for an average of five minutes, which is long enough for them to take walks along the lakebeds. No wonder their nickname is the ‘river horse’!
Our four hippo females, Mavis, Hilary, Gussie and Friday, spend a lot of their day in the water, but they don’t have a diet of aquatic plants. They will come onto the land to feed on grass and tasty lettuce treats from our keepers.
