The Wild Encounter Room is a short stroll from the main lounge, down a flight of stairs and with views of mature pine trees towards the Molonglo River. The room has a private terrace and its split-level design features a spacious lounge area.

There are no wild animals outside your room, however on the morning of your stay, two adult guests will be taken into the zoo for a hands-on meeting with the fastest animal on earth — a cheetah! Other room guests may watch the encounter. If you would prefer not to go in with the cheetah, contact Reception before booking and they will offer you alternative encounters.

Please note the encounter is for two people with a minimum age restriction of 15. In the rare event that this meeting cannot happen (due to unforeseen circumstances) we will introduce you to another animal or animals within the zoo.
