We stayed one night at the Safari Lodge bed and breakfast. The room fee includes your zoo admission for the entire time you are there. Of note, there are two rooms (the Safari lodge and the Lion's den - we stayed in the Safari Lodge). The room is basically a good sized apartment with a full kitchen and a balcony overlooking the zoo. I've reviewed the zoo and behind the scenes animal encounter separately under the zoo. I recommend this room so you can eat out on the balcony in the evening and hear the animals or watch the ducks on the pond. The room is a bit on the pricey side but the decor is very fun and you do get access to the zoo after hours which is a really unique experience. The room rate also gets you 20% off the behind the scenes encounter which I highly recommend. The mattress was very firm.

If you are looking for a charming, quaint, eclectic, comfortable, relaxing, mini getaway, the B&B at Jungle Cat World is perfect. Very cool, large apartment with jungle theme. Fresh eggs (from their chickens), bread, cheese, yogurt, milk, jam, panckake mix, and wine are included. After hours access to the park makes this a great adventure. I walked through the park early in the morning and was able to view all the animals up close and personal. They also have a pet cemetery, behind the scenes tour and a zoo camp for kids. We were even invited to join a group of girls guides for their evening education program and night park tour. If you are looking for a Holiday Inn, don't come here, this place has far more character! Lots of personal touches and history.

My fiance and I stayed in the Safari Lodge at Jungle Cat World last weekend. We were amazed at the size of the room and the add ons that came with it. They left us eggs, bacon, juices, pancake mix, coffee, tea, cereal, milk, cream, wine, 2 bottles of beer and more. The room was gorgeous. More like an apartment. And the decor was really amazing making me feel like I really was in Africa. After hours when the park closed we had to option of going out to visit the animals at any time we wished. We went out at around midnight and could see and hear the wolves howling. What an incredible experience. The next morning after breakfast we did the Behind the Scenes tour and spent time with a striped hyena, a lemur and Contessa, the baby tiger. It was an experience neither of us will ever forget. The staff was amazing, very friendly and very knowledgeable. I would love to go back soon.

We visited wanting to relax and get away from stresses of life with our son. We arrived, surprised to find out that the "zoo" is right next to the highway, our room was above the checkin office and backing onto the parking lot (right next to highway) and was dirty. I don't need a fancy place to stay in, but I expect it to be clean. The floor was dirty, small carpets were not vacuumed, and fridge drawers had bits of food in them - was not cleaned from previous guests. I told the owner, figuring it could be rectified by the time we came back, but was told that it was fine, and that carpets were revacuumed. I swept the floor myself, which filled the dust pan with dirt and sand. No way the floors could have been cleaned before we arrived if there was dirt on the floor. Owner reassured me sheets were clean, and he seemed like a nice enough man. Beds were however uncomfortable, sheets bally, ..... Air conditioner in window loud.
We took a tour of the animals, and found them to look very unhealthy, overweight, lack of muscle development, and in very small cages for their size. A good variety of animals, but small property, and not well kept. I wasn't about to pay extra to have direct contact with the animals, which other writers described as a good experience. The room was overpriced for what you got. Not within safe walking distance to the small town, so couldn't really get out to do something else without driving.
I expected the animals to be more of an education tool to preserve their species, but there was not much evidence of that - some information boards outside of each cage - but when I asked the owner about funding they get from places like "Global Giving" and such, he said they get nothing, they need to do it all themselves, and did not describe how what they are doing is helping the animals in any way.
My son was excited to see the animals, but we all felt pretty cooped up with not much to do there other than walk around the property - and as I mentioned too close to highway.

We visited Jungle Cat World Zoo and stayed overnight in the Safari Lodge associated with the zoo. I have reviewed the zoo separately from our accommodations. We arrived several hours before check in time and were able to check in right away. Upon walking into the apartment we were overwhelmed. It was huge! A long hallway leading past the bathroom and bedroom opened up into a huge kitchen and living area with vaulted ceilings and a balcony overlooking the zoo. The decor was perfectly safari themed. The kitchen was stocked with bacon and eggs, a loaf of bread, jam, cheese, yogurt, juice, milk, cereal, fruit, and even a bottle of wine and a couple beer.
Upon closer inspection the rooms were quite poorly cleaned. The toilet smelled, there were hairs in the tub upon arrival, the whole place needed a thorough dusting and the floors needed to be swept, especially under the furniture where there was a thick layer of filth. The bed was uncomfortable and the noise from the highway could be heard from the rooms.
Although it's easy to find, the zoo is relatively far away from any towns so driving to get supper is a must unless you bring your own meal to prepare in the lodge.
It was nice being able to visit the zoo after the other guests had gone home and take our time admiring the animals. There is nothing quite like hearing the lions roar from your living room and hearing the wolves howl at night from your balcony.
Overall a nice experience, but I would not stay overnight again.

We have stayed here twice while our kids did a week of summer camp here at the zoo. After the first time we have been wanting to come back even without the zoo camp excuse. The room is a good sized apartment on the second floor. It is quite extensively decorated with a wild cat, Africa theme. Safari Lodge is a good name. The far end of the room opens onto a smallish balcony overlooking the zoo grounds. You can watch, and more impressively hear, the animals calling, growling, etc. there are peacocks, geese, rabbit sect wandering around the property and a couple alpacas, etc. All the tigers, lions, cougar, jaguar, serval cats, bobcats, lynx, wolves, etc are safely in double chain link enclosures. I'm listening to the lion right now. You are welcome to walk around the grounds at night watching the animals when they are active. They even provide the flashlights. It is a unique place, but the service is incredible. The place is clean and amazingly stocked. There are a dozen fresh eggs from their own chickens, milk, oj, apple juice, several cereals and yogurts, fresh fruit, bags of chips, even a pound of bacon, also a bottle of wine and a couple bottles of beer in give fridge, all included with the room. The book shelves are full of new to antique books on wildlife, a few in German, there's a large chess board with six inch tall wooden pieces set up in one corner. It's quite a place. Also nice flat screen tv and wi-fi. The opposite end of the second floor is a smaller apartment which I'm sure is just as nice, but doesn't have the balcony as it faces away from the zoo so I would pick the bigger one. They do also have meet&greet with the animals but we haven't done that. We did Some that they let us do with the kids in camp, but that would make it an even more unique get away.

My husband and I spent a weekend here in June and had a great time! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room / apt we stayed in was very large and would comfortably fit a family. We arrived in time to check-in, get a guided tour of our room / apt and head for the feeding tour. After the tour we came back to explore our room for a bit until it was time for our one-on-ones with some cuddly friends. The room/apt was nicely decorated and comfortable. The fridge was fully stocked with everything we would need for breakfast the next day, some snacks, juice, water, coffee, and a bottle of wine. We chose the baby Kangaroo, Hyenas and Lemures for our private visits. What a blast! The kangaroo was so sweet and liked being held like a baby and fell asleep in my arms. The Hyenas were our second stop and they were so much fun and nothing like we expected. Such personalities. Our last stop was the Lemures .. What a blast! We went out for dinner and returned after dark. It had been hot durring the day so many more animals were active and exploring. We heard the tigers fighting from our room and let me just tell you ...WHAT A SOUND! I fell asleep for about 3 hours on the sofa in the living room where I slept with the patio door and windows open so that I wouldnt miss a sound. The sound of the lions moaning back and forth was amazing. I was awoke around 5:30am by the howling wolves. Absolutely great experience. Thinking of returning next year with our 3 kids for the 'whole' experience.

We recently celebrated a birthday with family at the lodge. What a treat and what a great time we had. Despite seeing some pictures, it was more than we expected. The room's were huge and the entire place is decorated in a jungle theme including the dishes and towels! Do it yourself breakfast was included in the fridge. There were free range eggs, bread, cheese, cereals, milk, juice etc. All you could need...including a keurig coffee machine, a bottle of beer and a bottle of wine. there were also National Geographic magazines, animal movies and games, stuffies for the kids and as a special treat, we got to go back into the zoo after dark.

We had too much fun in the safari lodge- it was huge, clean and we were provided with food and drinks and the suite had books, games and movies. We had after hours access to the zoo which was my favourite part of the trip. We also did the behind the scenes tour and met lion cubs, Ed the Hyena and lemurs.
