Accommodation at Lookout Lodge

Cosy lodges with the most beautiful views in the Zoo 

Our cosy lodges have everything you need for a comfortable night's stay at the Zoo and are each named after an animal you can find at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. 

Our nine lodge cabins come with either double or twin beds and each lodge has a private veranda so that you can sip your bedtime tea or hot chocolate whilst listening to the sounds of the Zoo at night.
