Stay in an African safari lodge and go wildlife spotting…..in Kent

Do you dream of going on an African safari but wonder how on earth you’ll find the money to take the whole family?  Well, our safari lodges in a wild animal park in Kent may be the answer to your dreams!  While you’re saving up for the big trip, how about spending a week or a long weekend at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent where you can stay in a safari tent, sip a sundowner from a waterhole viewpoint, and get up at the crack of dawn to go on a guided safari.

Each tent can accommodate a family of four and is furnished with wrought iron lamps, crystal chandeliers and cabinets made by local craftsmen.   You might have a round bed, an inlaid wooden bed or a handcrafted bamboo bed – each one is unique. Each tent sits within a private tropical garden, with a 5m x 3m pool which overlooks a forest of coconut palms. All tents and cabins are equipped with air-conditioning, a mini fridge, an iPod dock, an internal phone service and a Wi-Fi connection.

The Sandat Glamping site is located near Ubud, a town in central Bali, and if you want to experience traditional Balinese culture then this is the place to do it. There are temples and historic sites to discover, rice paddies, coconut groves and mountains to explore, and traditional experiences to enjoy.  Bali is a feast for the senses.
