Deluxe cabin accommodation in a unique setting at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo.
If you’re heading to Dubbo, chances are the Taronga Western Plains Zoo will be a high priority on your itinerary, so why not also consider staying on site? The Savannah Cabins are located just 3km from the entry to the zoo, and only 280m from its African Savannah exhibit, where giraffes, ostriches, buffalo and other African animals roam. Fall asleep to the sound of lions roaring or hippos bellowing, and wake at sunrise to catch glimpses of giraffes through the trees at feeding time. Now that’s a unique accommodation experience.
These are not your bog-standard holiday park cabins; they’re modern and luxurious, more like spacious serviced apartments than cabins in the traditional sense. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms (an en suite and a main), one bedroom has a queen-sized bed while the other has a king that can be configured as two singles. There is also a pull-out sofa in the generous open-plan lounge/dining room, accommodating a total crowd of six. The cabins are therefore ideal both for families and travelling friends, facilitating up to three couples.
Fully self-contained, each cabin has a modern kitchen complete with stovetop, oven, fridge, microwave and dishwasher, plus a barbecue on the deck, where there’s also an outdoor setting – that’s happy hour sorted. All cabins have free WiFi and Foxtel, plus reverse-cycle air conditioning for climate control.
With windows stretching all the way to the tall ceilings, the cabins are bright and airy with plenty of natural light and a sophisticated aesthetic that renders them rather plush. Serviced daily, they offer a comfortable and unique accommodation option that will quickly feel like your home away from home.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo has accommodation and zoo experience packages that include a night’s accommodation and zoo entry for a family of four for $388 per night (outside school holidays). Additional nights start at $279 per night. We reckon that’s pretty good value given the level of comfort and of course that wonderful location at one of Australia’s most wonderful zoos.
The Savannah Cabins are located in the Taronga Western Plains Zoo on Obley Rd, Dubbo, NSW. Book now to stay at Savannah Cabins.
