ZSL London Zoo Lodges - About

Inspired by the welcoming charm of hotels in the lion's native Gujarati home in India, our beautifully decorated lodges have a traditional feel and are each themed to a different animal found in the Gir forest.

Our nine cosy ZSL London Zoo Lodge cabins have either double or twin beds and an en-suite bathroom.

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.
