Best experience and best staff
Jul 2021
I proposed to my partner during my time at the Slumber Safari. I have a few things I would like to say. Firstly, I cannot thank Ellie and the head Chef enough. Ellie showed so much enthusiasm to make sure that everything I requested was noted and implemented. They went above and beyond with decorating our room before my partner and I walked in aftr going on the Safari. Ellie and the head chef exceeded my expectations around what I requested. It was better than what I could have ever asked for. They made my proposal so magical!. Secondly, a big thank you to Tom too, for informing a lot of the staff on the Safari who I felt worked hard to make the day memorable. This was one of the best days of my life and I could not have made it possible without the help of the Werribee zoo Slumber safari staff.

A Fantastic Getaway on the Slumber Safari
Jul 2021 • Couples
We recently stayed at the Werribee Zoo on a Slumber Safari and it was amazing!
The tented/ cabin accomodation was great, the food was absolutely delicious and our tour guide for our overnight stay with Matt was fantastic. Matt was very knowledgable & informative as he took us on our tours and encounters, and he went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Will be back again and would definitely recommend!

Amazing experience!
Apr 2021
What an amazing experience!!! We visited with 7 of our family members, including my daughter who is 2. The whole weekend catered for everyone, all of us enjoyed all the activities and exclusive encounters. The food was delicious, lodges were incredibly comfortable and warm, and the guides were exceptional. We will be recommending this to all our family and friends!

Be careful of booking through site for this experience
Mar 2021 • Family
Be careful booking this experience through this site. The dates that are advertised as being available are not necessarily correct. We booked a date through here and then after paying, received an email that the booking wax “pending” availability through Zoos Victoria. 24 hours later, we were advised that the booking had been cancelled as it was not available. We are awaiting the refund of the funds.

We ended up booking directly through Zoos Victoria, but for 3 months after the date we booked through this site.

Experience the African savannah without the travel
Mar 2021
When you can't get to Africa to do the safari you dream of, do not hesitate! This is an exceptional experience with up close and personal contact with the animals, great food, unique accommodation, evening campfire, warm, helpful, knowledgeable guides and an overriding feeling of being somewhere unique throughout. Add on a deluxe outing if you can t get off the beaten track...but even if you stick with what the Slumber Safari has to offer, you will be treating yourself to something extraordinary.

Incredible experience
The slumber safari was so much fun. Fantastic food for our vegan dietary requirements at all meal times. Two animal encounters - rhinos and hippos. Extremely humane, no unnatural behaviours shown. Bus tour was amazing. Will return and do this experience again for sure

What a night with the animals
Feb 2020
As animal lover one of the best experiences of my life - to have the Zoo basically to yourself (with about 14 other people) was an extraordinary experience. A sunset (pre-dinner) tour after the zoo closed finished with our small group spending a leisurely 30+ minutes at the lion enclosure watching them have nibble on some bones.
The guides were incredible and were able to share so many wonderful insights and stories and our close encounter with a Rhinoceros is a treasured memory. The night time walk through the zoo with only torches was out of this world and hearing the noises of the animals as you went to sleep and when you woke up was also amazing.
I know it seems expensive but worth every dollar!!!
