Live Wild! At Jamala Wildlife Lodge

Imagine waking up at dawn to the roar of a pride of lions, bathing next to a Malayan sun bear, or seeing a giraffe wander leisurely past your window. But you’re not on an African safari, or deep in the wilds of Asia. You’re just ten minutes outside of the Canberra CBD.

It sounds implausible, but this is the experience on offer when you stay at Jamala Wildlife Lodge – luxury accommodation within the grounds of Canberra’s National Zoo and Aquarium. Housed in gorgeously appointed suites among various animal habitats, guests have the opportunity for a weekend away like no other, meeting dangerous and endangered species and learning how you can contribute to their survival in the wild.
