Werribee Open Range Zoo

Slumber Safari

Enjoy a truly memorable overnight experience with a Slumber Safari at Werribee Open Range Zoo. It is the ideal getaway for couples, groups, families or colleagues providing an Out of Africa escape, just 30 minutes from the heart of Melbourne.

Slumber Safari brings together unique accommodation with a fully hosted experience including amazing close-up animal encounters, drinks and dips at sunset, a sumptuous dinner, awesome night-time activities including a night walk and toasting marshmallows around the evening campfire then a delicious supper of scones, jam and cream. In the morning you can watch the animals on the African savannah awaken and enjoy a buffet breakfast served in the Safari Dining Hut as you take in the view.

Our safari camp offers an exceptional glamping (luxury camping) experience, with stunning tented lodges and creature comforts including en-suites, fans, heating/cooling and electric blankets. The design has an authentic and earthy touch that says ‘safari’ and, with just eight tents in total, you share this amazing experience with just a few others. For those who want to chill out and relax, you have your very own purpose-built balcony, overlooking the Werribee River and the Zoo's wonderful African savannah.

Adult-only camps are available each month and gift cards are also available.

  • Two days of zoo entry
