At first we were a bit concern about booking Camp Baboon for my birthday. We thought it was quite expensive for the price since we had previouly stayed at Port Lymph in Kent for a similar experince and didn't think Camp Baboon would be as good. But how wrong were we. Our guide Matt was very knowledgable who stayed with us for the bush craft activity, dinner and guided walk in the evening and early morning walk and breakfast in the morning. The bush craft activity and guided walks were amazing. No questions were left unanswered even with our super inquisitive 4 year old. It rained during our stay, but it did nothing to damped our excitement.

Based at the wild place at Cribbs Causeway. You go to the Wild Place for the day as a normal visitor and then when every one else goes home you stay there over night in one of their 10 pod's. But it's much more than that, you have 2 hosts that take you to the woods and do bush craft activities (very bear grills), then you have dinner which was lovely and plentiful. After dinner you have a nighttime tour of the animals (torches in hand), you see the animals that are active at night from a very different perspective. Following that it's back to the pods for hot chocolate and melting marshmallows on the camp fire. The next morning it's an early start on a tour of the rest of the animals, you even get to feed some of them. Following the tour you head in to the giraffe house and conference room which I have to say is really quite special. Here you have a great breakfast (whilst the giraffes are having their breakfast) with more food than you can eat and coffee on tap. The hosts are amazing,great fun, very informative and are so passionate about conversvation and making sure you have an amazing stay. But it doesn't finish there. At 10.30am you check out of your pod's and have the option to stay on site the rest of the day or head off to Bristol Zoo for the day (entry complimentary). It's a really sociable stay with a packed itinary, nothing was too much trouble and there was no scrimping when it came to making sure we had every thing we needed and more. A big thumbs up and well done to Wild Place. A truly unique stay x
Also massive thank you to Sophie and Matt who are amazing hosts. Good luck in your studies and fulfiling your ambitions.

Room Tip: Children under 5 might find this very tiring and over whelming. I would say children of the age 5 to 12 would be most suited.

Hi just to say on the 14th October we stayed the night at camp baboon in Bristol it was a birthday surprise for my wife and what a great treat it turned out to be we checked in and shown to our pod it was very very nice clean nice shower nice double bed nice area to chill and a nice outside area to seat and relax we had to game wardens who were very clued up on the animals and the bush craft ,we we’re taught how to make a fire useing flint stone and a few other tricks and even made a stick for toasting marshmallows on the open fire before bed and in the morning we saw all the animals and even had a nice breakfast with the giraffes and you get a free day out at Bristol zoo, you can also just go for the day at wild place but it’s well worth staying the night at camp baboon if you want to treat someone to a special day/night then you cannot beat this it may sound expensive but what you get for your money we thought it was well priced

What a fantastic time from start to finish . Sophie and Rebecca were super hosts , knowledgeable and sociable with all of the guests. The cabins were great, really cosy, and clean and perfect for spending the night in. We all slept like babies and were not woken up by the Geladas !
i would totally recommend this experience to anyone.
