We all have at least one serious nature lover in our life – always watching documentaries, reading articles, and they always have some new animal fact to share. Help get them away from the television and into the savannah with this incredible Slumber Safari opportunity only 30 minutes outside of Melbourne’s CBD.

This overnight Slumber Safari experience consists of 2 days entry into the zoo, stunning accommodation plus exclusive animal encounter and animal viewing opportunities and meet the keeper experience – so they will really get the whole safari experience without having to make the trek to Africa! There will be the opportunity to have close encounters with animals they never thought possible, those that roam the grasslands of the motherland! Think zebras, lions, giraffes, antelopes, rhinos, hippos and more!

After they have devoured their scrumptious African inspired dinner, night time activities will ensue – including a night walk to learn more about the way these majestic creatures live, followed by the camping ritual of roasting marshmallows, and the opportunity to demolish some scones with jam and cream. The perfect way to end a truly unique day!

They can then head off to bed in style as the Slumber Safari experience is camping with a twist! Just like is often offered in the real African savannah, your gift-ee will be glamping! “Luxury” or “glamourous” camping really is that step up from the hard floors, to a super comfy bed, complete with an en-suite, and both a fan or electric blanket to cover any of those four seasons in one day that Melbourne loves to sport!

These stunning lodges have a luxuriously wild feel to them – with their design and colouring featuring a taste of nature, there are only eight available, meaning the whole experience will be an intimate one. With each of the cabins including their own private balcony overlooking the Werribee River and the African style savannah, there is certainly a way for them to further escape the already small group. They will wake up to the sounds of the savannah, and have the chance to watch the animals below do their morning rituals over a buffet breakfast in the Safari Dining Hut.

The tents themselves can accommodate up to five individuals, and there are adult only camps available each month if they need a break from the kids (theirs and others!) – this can be discussed with the provider when organising the Slumber Safari itself. Once you have purchased your gift voucher, it will be available in your inbox immediately and is valid for use for 36 months thereafter.

The Slumber Safari adventure can be enjoyed during all weather conditions, from Thursday to Sunday, but there are more opportunities during school holidays! Finally, to top it all off, they will also receive a 15% discount voucher for the zoo shop, and a 20% discount voucher for additional wildlife encounters to enjoy during their stay!
