Jamala Wildlife Lodge


Jamala Wildlife Lodge is the ultimate overnight safari at the National Zoo & Aquarium in Canberra. It is one of the few places in the world where you can sleep next to a cheetah or a brown bear and have dinner with white lions and hyenas.

The lodge and all rooms feature magnificent carvings, artworks and an overwhelming atmosphere of being in a game lodge on the other side of the world! You will meet many of the most dangerous and endangered species on earth and learn how you can help their survival.


There are three magnificent accommodation options – uShaka Lodge, Giraffe Tree Houses and Jungle Bungalows, each with their own unique wildlife experience.

uShaka Lodge is a beautiful seven-room lodge with stunning lounge and dining areas, pool, spa and tropical gardens. The six Giraffe Treehouse suites are set amongst lush surroundings allowing guests the opportunity to feed the resident giraffe from their balcony overlooking the Molonglo River, and the five Jungle Bungalows are luxurious individual suites where a glass wall is all that will separate you from a pride of lions, a cheetah, tiger, brown bears or a Malayan sun bear!


The African inspired luxury suites lie in the heart of the National Zoo & Aquarium and epitomise style and comfort. The combination of opulent surroundings, incredible animal encounters and gourmet cuisine alongside Jamala’s five-star hospitality ensures that all guests share in a once in a lifetime experience during their stay.

The all-inclusive culinary offerings complete your lodge stay with an unforgettable dinner, often accompanied by some very special guests – like white lions or hyenas. All tours, dining and drinks are included in your experience.
