5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The whole thing was excellent. From when you enter until you leave. Well worth the money. We did 2 tours. In which you get to see things the public wouldn't. The food was superb. We had a great time at tea. Meet heaps of new people. We had a ball. We thought it would be a once off. But now its like which room will we do next. The Giraffe tree house was fantastic. Oh and all the staff were so friendly and helpful.

An awesome place to celebrate a special occasion. From arrival we were treated as special guests with every need catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. The canapes, dinner and breakfast were superb as were the staff who were taking care of us. The little and unexpected things were all ticked here, bed turned back with a little treat left. In fact I could write an essay of praise but that could spoil it for the next guests if I told you everything. We live interstate and had only recently heard of Jamala and it was on our bucket list, lucky for those who live much closer as it is also a wonderful day trip to the well set out zoo. Plenty to keep the kids (and big kids) entertained and two areas to grab a bite to eat, one much larger and with ample grounds and a kids adventure park. On a serious note this place is to be highly commended for the unique combination of hospitality supporting animal welfare not just locally but worldwide.
