Forget the rubber duck, you can now bathe within a whisker of a lion thanks to a luxury five-star lodge built in the middle of a safari park.

Lion Lodge, at Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve in Kent, gives guests the chance to sleep, cook and even take a bath while a pride of lions prowls just inches away.

The lodge is a world first, and with huge picture windows in both the master bedroom and the open plan living area, brave guests are never far away from the five magnificent predators who live at the park.

The loft-style building comes complete with a huge open fire and wood-heated Scandinavian outdoor baths on secluded platforms.

The king-size master suite offers a prime view of the lions – Adras, Oudrika and their three adorable cubs – while a spiral staircase leads up to a mezzanine level with two single beds.

The lodge also boasts a bespoke bar, a six-foot show-stopping chandelier and a private terrace and gardens.

Oudrika gave birth to three cubs in the early hours of May 13, this year. 

They were the first cubs to be born at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve in more than ten years. 

Lion Lodge follows the success of a similar venture at the reserve, Tiger Lodge – probably the only place in the world where you can wake up with a tiger at your window.
