    Great being able to see girafes from the door, even if far away. Plenty of wild roos about. :-)

    Like living in an African safari park in Australia

    Right next to the Savannah enclosure of the Tooronga Western Plains Zoo these cabins have all the modern conveniences including (sign of relief) air conditioning, which we needed in the heat of Summer. Each night we would be surrounded by mobs of kangaroos and woken in the morning to the birdsong, while across the way giraffe, rhinos and more roamed the savannah.

    Quiet location and children enjoyed seeing kangaroos. No microwave in our cabin which would have been useful (but there is an oven). Air con only in lounge room so didn’t reach to all bedrooms, end bedroom was very hot. There are fans in all rooms though, but still stuffy without air con.

    We really enjoyed our stay at savannah cabins. The cabins were well appointed and very comfortable for a family of four. We had a grandparent with us too so made use of the sofa bed in the lounge/kitchen which was comfortable enough. The location was great with lots of birds and wildlife on the doorstep. We could see giraffes and rhinos in the distance too from our lodge and kangaroos literally metres away from us. The zoo entrance is only a two minute drive away too. All in all a great stay!

    Well equipped and perfectly located for our preferred self-catered visit to Dubbo Zoo with our 4 yr old granddaughter. We will be back when the next one turns 4.

    We love the quiet location and the fact that the unit has all the cooking equipments needed to make meals. Bear in mind this property doesn't have room service, etc and behind a gate next to the zoo. So you'll need to byo. Easy in and out of the gate with your car though.

    A must for first timers in Dubbo

    If you are a family and want to see the zoo you can’t go past this. It was a great experience. Massive windows from all rooms looking over the zoo and a mob of Kangroos just outside the unit in the morning. There were even a pair of binoculars. Good airconditioning even though it was below zero outside and the whole place is roomy and modern. However; there was a problem as we came in late. I had phoned ahead and was told that reception was open until 6pm. We arrived after 5pm to find the zoo shut at 4:30pm.We finally tracked down someone who gave us directions and instructions, They were great even phoning the cabin to check we had arrived safely.
