First off, we will start this article by saying that this has to be one of the coolest places to vacation and stay at, that we have ever seen! It’s just so freaking cool!

The lodge is located in Kent, England and it basically allows you to live with beautiful wildlife for a few days time!

Lion Lodge, a Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve in Kent, is giving its guests a life-time opportunity to sleep and cook while a pride of lions prowling just a few inches away.

This five-star lodge also comes with a soaking bathtub that lets you soak beside hungry, wild predators, separated only by a pane of glass — strong glass of course!

You are able to choose from a variety of rooms that will get you up and personal with wild animals such as tigers, lions, wolves and bears. The Lion’s Lodge is by far the most impressive.

This lodge is the first of its kind, has huge windows in both the living areas of the lodge and the bedroom, allowing you to watch the day-to-day routine and movements of lions and tigers throughout your stay in the hotel.

Most of the hotel’s high-class amenities are equipped with huge open fireplaces, wood-heated Scandinavian outdoor baths, secluded platforms and entertainment systems. The lodge also features two single beds for kids, a bespoke bar, a six-foot show-stopping chandelier and a private terrace.

Dining fare includes a wood-heated pizza joint and an upscale Babydoll restaurant, named after a late, most beloved gorilla on the reserve.

This unique travel getaway also hosts education courses as well as spectacular tours for kids and adults. With additional charges, visitors can shadow a zookeeper for the whole day, feed gorillas, or take an animal photography course.

Those staying at the lodge are also granted exclusive access to the park after hours, both before the gates open in the morning and in the evening when all day guests have left. You will also be supplied with a golf buggy to make your way around the park or even rent night vision binoculars to view the animals after dark.

Booking accommodation at Lion Lodge does come at quite the cost though, as an overnight stay costs start from £1,750 ($1931 USD) per night. This price includes breakfast, a bottle of bubbly on arrival, an entrance fee to Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve as well as Howletts Wild Animal Park and the complimentary safari.

If your budget doesn’t allow for a $2k stay, you can choose other lodges at a much lower cost. Some of the small cabins and rooms are able to be booked for as little as a few hundred dollars.

The Tiger Lodge costs £1,000 ($1103 USD) a night, the Wolf Lodge is £549 ($606 USD), and the Bear Lodge costs £350 ($386 USD).

Premium lodges with prime panoramic views can run you over $2,200 per night. There are certain times of the year that the lodges are offered up at a 50% discount!

Most of the profits made at Port Lympne Reserve Hotel and Reserve go towards saving endangered and rare species of animals found in the UK as well as overseas.

This is definitely one place to add to your bucket list!
