Our Jungle Bungalows consist of five luxurious individual suites, each adjoining an enclosure within the zoo.
A glass wall is all that separates you from a pride of lions, cheetah brothers, tigers or a pair of Malayan sun bears! Regardless of whether you are relaxing in your lounge area, resting in bed or taking a leisurely bath, when your resident animal is in the bungalow den area, you will only be a heartbeat away from these amazing creatures. With large viewing windows looking into their habitat, each of these animals have access to their enclosures during your visit.
Maximum adults per room: 3
Maximum total guests per room: 4
Bedding: 1 king bed and 1 double pull out sofa
Access to some Jungle Bungalows requires guests to walk up a number of stairs.
When making a booking you have the option of giving 3 preferences for which animal will be outside your room. We do our very best to meet your preferences, but no guarantees are given, as allocation can depend on:
- Which animals are in the relevant enclosures
- Families with children must be allocated specific rooms
- Earlier bookings may have given the same preferences as you
- Some guests have mobility issues and need the bungalow with the least steps
- Some visitors may be staying over from the previous night
We can only recommend that if you feel that you will not be happy with any of the four animal species adjoining the bungalows (Sun bears, Cheetah, Lions, Tigers or a substitute one), that you either select a Giraffe Treehouse or a uShaka Lodge room.
Please note guests may experience some disruption during the night as the animals move about their enclosures. The Jungle Bungalows are secreted away within the zoo itself and their location and proximity to animal enclosures means that there must be at least one person 21 years or older staying in a bungalow. Many animals react differently to children, therefore the following age limits apply:
Lions— Minimum age is 14 and children must be 1.5m tall.
Sun bears: Minimum age is 6 years old.
Tigers: Minimum age is 6.
Cheetahs: Minimum age is 10 years old.
All National Zoo & Aquarium conservation, breeding and educational programs are supported by funds raised by Jamala Wildlife Lodge.
Although animals usually appear as depicted in photos, no guarantees can be given.
