The exotic plains of Africa may seem like a distant dream, but we've managed to track down a wild Escape complete with great cuisine and stylish accommodation. The atmospheric Elephant Lodge in Kent is offering a hand-picked VIP safari experience; the perfect rural retreat for you and the rest of your pack.

The delightful tented lodge is nestled within Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and offers an unforgettable three-night VIP glamping experience in luxury tents. Six to eight* explorers can stay per tent for £499 (up to a £1,019.95 value). The luxury tents have private toilet and shower facilities and are equipped with a log burning stove. Furnished to reflect the spirit of the savannah, they are set against a backdrop of the elephant and cheetah paddocks, with stunning views over the Kent coast.

On arrival you'll find a bottle of bubbly in your tent and you can enjoy three sumptuous dinners during your stay.You'll head round the world with your nightly two-course dinner; African cuisine on Tuesday, a taste of Asia on Wednesday, and The Ultimate Club Sandwich on Thursday. Breakfast each morning is a bakery basket containing fruit juice, mini muffins, croissants, toast, preserves, cereal, and more.

Your personal ranger will guide you and your party on a shared dusk safari around the world-renowned Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in a Land Rover. The vehicle will stop en route so you will have ample opportunity to view over 200 free-roaming animals and to get some great photos of the wildlife—be sure to have your camera and binoculars ready. Your ranger will regale the group with facts and stories about the animals you encounter, from rhinos to zebras and wildebeest to giraffes. The Escape also includes free entry to both Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks.

This mid-week escape accommodates six to eight* people. The offer is for a three-night consecutive stay on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night until October 28. Children are welcome. *If travelling with more than six guests, an additional charge applies for meals; £20 per person, per night for under 15s, and £25 per person, per night for over 15s.

  • "Visitors can delight at the antics of lively colobus monkeys and langurs in their open enclosures, marvel at the curious and agile lemurs in the 'Walking with Lemurs' experience and come face to face with tigers in their glass fronted enclosures."
