Bear Lodge is a luxury 'glamping' experience in spacious tented accommodation, with stunning views over our brand new bear enclosure, out to the Romney Marsh and English Channel. 

Formerly known as Elephant Lodge, family and friends can stay for 1, 3, 4 or 7 nights on our secure gated site, with parking.

19 luxury tents with en suite facilities, each comfortably sleeping six people, surround our central Bear Lodge Clubhouse and children’s play area. Inside the tents, there’s a spacious living area, including the ‘bear necessities’ such as cutlery, crockery, a small fridge and sink, plus, separate sleeping areas with real beds and comfy mattresses.

The on-site clubhouse restaurant serves a wide range of dishes, including traditional South American dishes, to compliment the arrival of our bear pair.  We’ve also fully refurbished our bar area and alongside our new cocktail menu, guests can sample our exclusive ‘spectacled beer’. 

A stay at Bear Lodge, includes entry to Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve and sister park Howletts Wild Animal Park, near Canterbury and additional experiences are available to book including private Ranger guided safaris, animal experiences, archery, fishing and zorbing, so every day can be filled with wild adventures!
