The Chessington Safari Hotel is ideally located right in the heart of the park, so you’re always just a stone’s throw from all the fun.

What’s more, the Safari Hotel is bursting with lively activities for the kids. Enjoy a tasty family meal at the African-inspired Zafari Bar & Grill, boasting an array of dishes and overlooking the stunning zebras, giraffe and antelopes of the Zoo’s Wanyama Reserve.

Hotel benefits

There are other great benefits too, with free parking and Early Ride Time offering access to rides 30 minutes before the park opens on selected dates (rides subject to availability) — check out our calendar for full Early Rider details. Exciting safari-themed rooms are available, and every room boasts an en-suite bathroom and TV with pay per view movies for an enjoyable end to an adventurous day.

To take advantage of the early rider benefit guests need to meet at the Zafari Bar at 9am to be taken through to the park in a group. Available on Saturday and Sundays and throughout the school holidays.

For a really Wild Adventure, choose one of our nine specially created African Adventure family bedrooms. Children can explore their canvas tented sleeping area with their very own bamboo housed TV and treasure box. The walls are adorned with wild animals and exciting activities. The whole family can help complete the savannah quiz and find the missing animals around the room to then unlock the treasure box and claim the prize. Animal prints, ethnic decorations, thatching and a four poster canopy double bed in the main section of the bedroom complete the African experience for the whole family.

Please note: This room does not include a view of the Wanyama Village and Reserve.
