This UK Hotel Lets You Sleep In the Tiger Enclosure
Sounds ‘fierce’, right? Sorry.
Get yer claws out and tell the world that stripes are back in fashion honey, because you can sleep in a literal tiger enclosure, and if that’s not fierce well then what is, tbh.
The best part? You won’t even have to fork out the big bucks and travel across the world to do it - because it’s a wildlife park in Kent that has opened a hotel room right inside the tiger habitat.
Tiger Lodge at Port Lympne allows guests to spend the night just inches away from two of the endangered big cats, with floor-to-ceiling windows (natch) that provide optimal viewing.
The lodge is also hella fancy, with a load of velvet and leather trimmings, a bar, a log burner, and vintage record player like that one your mum has but probably posher.
There’s more perks too - because when the park closes, overnight guests at the lodge and the other types of accommodation the park offers are free to explore the place sans other people, with a golf buggy, no less.
Oh, and don’t worry about a whole Jurassic Park scenario, because while the animals aren’t in cages, there are very safe wire fences to ensure you won’t become Tigger’s next meal.
Speaking of meals, you can feast on pizza before returning to your posh record player, thanks to the Italian restaurant on-site, next to the cheetahs. Too. Good.
A night at Tiger Lodge will set you back a whopping £950 though, so you might have to wait until you’re slightly less poor af to enjoy all of the above - although it is worth mentioning that it does sleep 4, which works out at a slightly more reasonable £237 per person.
Not only that, but donations and money raised by the park support projects that protect endangered species across the globe, and have helped the Aspinall Foundation reintroduce many animals back into the wild, including 60 gorillas and 5 black rhino.
Is it top of your wishlist yet?
