Slumber Safari x 1 Adult, MEL

Overnight Animal Close Up Experiences

Know a guy who could use an overnight getaway with a difference? This Slumber Safari is only 30 minutes from Melbourne city, but will feel like he has stepped right into the African savannah!



Send him on an incredible overnight Slumber Safari getaway only 30 minutes from the Melbourne CBD for the ultimate African savannah safari experience without the travel! If the grasslands of Africa are currently unreachable for a nature loving guy you know, this is an amazing gift opportunity to still be able to see these majestic animals.

This experience includes: 

  • 2-day entry to the Werribee Open Range Zoo situated 35 kilometres west of Melbourne;
  • overnight glamping style accommodation;
  • a range of close encounters with incredible African animals (think rhinos, zebras, lions, hippos, giraffes and more!) and other meet the keeper experiences;
  • delicious African inspired dinner, a buffet breakfast, and other snacks;
  • discount vouchers for the zoo shop (15%)

All coming together to form a truly unforgettable, fully hosted, Slumber Safari experience!

The scrumptious dinner will be followed by night time activities including a night walk, amongst others, only to be finished off with scones with jam and cream, and the toasting of marshmallows – which no camp is ever complete without!

Glamping, or glamourous/luxury camping, is one of those unique experiences we all have to try at least once! And what better way for him to try it out than when he is enjoying the African wild? With the lodges’ designs inspired by nature; they will sleep on beds, have their own private en-suite, along with their own private balcony overlooking the Werribee River and the savannah to get that little bit of reflective privacy in which is already a small group – there are only 8 lodges in total. There is both a fan for the heat, or an electric blanket for the cold, depending on when he chooses to take his wild adventure.

After waking to the beautiful sounds of nature, a buffet breakfast for all to enjoy will be served in the Safari Dining Lodge, where he can admire the animals below going about their morning business! This Slumber Safari adventure can be enjoyed regardless of weather conditions, and is available on Thursday to Sunday nights, with extra nights available during school holidays!

With the safari tents able to host up to 5 people, he can head over in a group if he desires. There are monthly adults only nights available, too – so he can get a break from the kids if needs be! This is something he can discuss when making all arrangements directly with the experience provider.
