A unique experience like no other, here you can see the world from a tiger’s perspective and be just whiskers away from some of the most intriguing and ferocious wild cats in the world. The lodgehas truly unique and breathtaking ceiling to floor windows looking out to the tiger enclosure, and inside the style is much like an African safari lodge – think trunk coffee tables, Chesterfield sofas and crackling log burners, as well as comfortable bedrooms sleeping a familyof four. What’s more, you’ll have a private balcony overlooking the English channel and if you’re lucky, the distant twinkling lights of theFrench coast at night time.

As part of your experience you’ll enjoy ranger guided safaris (starting with a glass of chilled bubbly), access to the Port Lympne Reserve, entry to Howlett’s Park and evening safari walks, as well as breakfast and lavish four-course dinners prepared on a fire-pit.
