Tiger Lodge offers an opportunity like no other – to see the world from a tiger’s perspective as you live and sleep just a whisker away from some of the planet’s most ferocious, yet magnificent, felines.
Appreciate the size and majesty of these beautiful creatures from your living room, where a picture window provides a cat’s eye view into the enclosure. Better still, wake in the morning to see the thrilling sight of Port Lympne’s Amur tigers pad past your bedroom window – just magical!
As well as the unforgettable experience of living side-by-side with big cats, Tiger Lodge offers exceptional accommodation for its lucky guests, who will find luxurious touches and beautiful design flowing throughout the whole two-bedroomed lodge. Creature comforts have never been more aptly named, and you’ll certainly find them here – including a stylish 4K television, turntable, Bamford toiletries, and fluffy bathrobes and towels, as well as a coffee machine and minibar.
You’ll also notice how natural touches blend beautifully with exotic flourishes in this spectacular bolthole. Wood-clad walls make you feel like you’re holidaying in a genuine safari lodge, while Serengeti-inspired artwork and a traveling trunk coffee table create a sense of far-flung adventure across the world. Curl up on the plush peacock-blue Chesterfield sofa as the log burner crackles away, and dive into tales of old from the well-stocked library.
As well as the incredible sight of the tiger enclosure on one side of Tiger Lodge, you’ll also find sensational vistas on the other side – best enjoyed from your private balcony! As you relax back in luxurious rattan furniture, feel your mind unwind as you soak up those 30-mile views towards the English Channel. Sip something cool as the sun sets over the horizon, and wait for the twinkling lights of the French coast as darkness falls. Pure heaven.
While staying at Tiger Lodge, you’re invited to dine at the sensational 4* Port Lympne Hotel, where home-grown and locally sourced ingredients are served up in the opulent dining room, or treat yourself to an authentic Italian feast at Babydoll’s Wood Fired Pizza and enjoy a glass of prosecco in the beautiful restaurant garden, before tucking into a delicious pizza or pasta dish. Afterwards, unwind in the Treehouse Clubhouse, where you can mingle with other guests and Port Lympne’s Rangers, chill out around the circular log fireplace or sit out in the sunshine with a long drink or two.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, as a guest at Tiger Lodge, you’re also entitled to explore the whole 600-acre reserve! Experience the full VIP treatment in your own personal golf buggy, and get closer to nature as you meet and learn about over 88 species of marvellous animals that live at Port Lympne.Keep reading
