Experiences at the zoo

Once you've checked in to the hotel, you don't have to enter the exciting world full of African animals, adrenaline experiences and trips on your doorstep.  But it wouldn't be quite the same without taking a ride through the African Safari and petting one or two of the creatures while spending the night at Dvur Kralove Zoo, would it? Well, if you do keep yourself to yourself in the hotel room, just don't go telling anyone at home about it.

Experience programmes

Experience programmes

We offer a number of special experience programmes  designed to bring you all the sights and smells most visitors only are not privy to. Book any of them right at the hotel desk or using the convenient booking form .

Off-road safari

Off-road safari

Imagine just you and a reliable guide alone amongst herds of animals, enjoying a trip in an off-road safari vehicle and a genuine African meal on your return. Experience an early evening in the midst of creatures on the Serengeti grassland. Get within arm's reach of a zebra and let it steal your breath away.  There is the additional bonus of getting a DVD on the zoo as a special gift.

Evening safari

Evening safari

Take in the spectacle of an African twilight. Watch herds of rhinos, zebras, giraffes and antelopes at sundown from a safari bus. Meet the lions and cheetahs lurking in the gathering dusk. Get ready for something that cannot be matched anywhere else in Europe. When darkness falls on a warm evening, it is the closest you can get to being in Africa without leaving the Czech Republic. All this at the lowest possible cost.

African Safari

African Safari

Sense the magic of Africa. Taking an African safari could make a visit to Dvur Kralove Zoo that extra bit special. Why not top off the day in style? This is a truly authentic experience, the closest thing to driving through an African wilderness and watching herds of zebras and antelopes roaming freely around you without actually going to Africa. Our hotel guests get this experience free of charge.
