Sleep under the stars and meet a host of exotic animals, in an exclusive Bristol camp that promises unforgettable adventure.
You'll find Camp Baboon within Wild Place Project, which was established by the British Zoological Society to protect exotic and endangered animals.
Surrounded by ancient woodland, Wild Place Project helps visitors immerse themselves in the wonders of nature, so you'll discover a range of outdoor adventures to get involved in...plus a whole host of animals to meet!
Feel as though you're travelling the world, as you head through the ‘plains of Africa' and watch zebras, giraffe and cheetah. The Secret Congo is home to okapi, while the beautiful walled garden is filled with mischievous meerkats and exotic birds.
And that's just for starters!
Camp Baboon itself consists of ten luxurious cabins, all perfectly positioned inside the project gates, and a mere stone's throw from the resident Gelada baboons.
Each heated cabin sleeps up to four people, and come equipped with downy beds, cosy furnishings and an indulgent rainfall shower. Hot drink-making facilities are also provided - perfect for whipping up a steaming cuppa, then heading out to the decking to capture those spectacular views.
All you have to do is check in to your chosen cabin, then get ready for some memorable escapades!
Throw yourselves into some exciting bushcraft activity, before you're served a chef-prepared two-course dinner as the sun sinks over the horizon. Then, prepare for a magical evening tour, during which you'll get to know the animals a little better with help from knowledgeable guides.
You won't be able to stop talking about your evening, as you enjoy toasted marshmallows around the campfire later on! But the best thing is, your experience isn't over yet.
Rise from your comfy beds to a tasty continental breakfast in the Courtyard Café, before you set off on a sunrise tour of Wild Place.
(All of this takes place well before the project doors open to the general public - there will be a delicious feeling of having the park completely to yourselves throughout!)
You're welcome to carry on exploring the project after you've checked out of your cabin, or take a stroll around Bristol Zoo Gardens. As Camp Baboon guests, entry and parking are both free of charge.
So get ready to hand yourselves over to the family fun, exhilaration and pure magic of nature you'll find waiting for you at Camp Baboon. You're sure to treasure the experience for a long time to come.
