I offered my boyfriend a two day stay at the safari lodge for his birthday. We stay at a Zoobservatory. It's a kind of tiny hut with a kitchenette, small bathroom with shower, a small bedroom upstairs with steep and narrow stairs plus a terrace with splendid view on the land where animals such as rinoceros, wallabies, siamangs and deers run free or practically free. There are goats, pigs and pelicans in the back garden as well. I've visited many zoo's in my life but this one was definitely the largest and the most green and natural place for the animals. There are bungalows for larger families or yourtes. The Zoobservatory I would only advice for skinny and/or small people. There is no shower gel nor a hair dryer available, so bring your own. If you cannot stand the heat, may I note there is no fan nor airconditioning in these huts so it can get pretty warm in the bedroom upstairs. In the bungalows there seems to be climate control. The breakfast is terribly simple (bread, cornflakes, jam, coffee) and costs 7€ so up to you to see whether it's worth it. I would just buy things from the supermarket and eat it in my lodge.
