Hotel Offering Guests Opportunity To 'Sleep With Lions'

When you've got a certain amount of money, holidays can be whatever you want them to be. If you fancy sleeping underwater, high up in the cloud forest, or on your own private island, then you can.

But maybe you like a little but more danger with your lavish trips. Well how about snoozing just inches away from a pride of lions?

Yep, this is an actual thing you can do in the UK. So if this sounds like your idea of heaven, look no further because at Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve in Kent, you can do just that.

And prices start at just £1,750 ($2,245) a night.

According to the site, it's the first of its kind in the world and offers guest a 'fully immersing experience', so it's money well spent, right?

The description reads: "Lion Lodge is the latest luxury overnight accommodation at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve in Kent. This fully immersing experience gives guests the chance to sleep with lions!

"These unique lodges, named Kikuyu and Jibana, offer guests the incredible opportunity to immerse themselves in the lives of Adras, Oudrika and their three adorable cubs: the Reserve's lion pride.

"The first of its kind worldwide, the Lion Lodges are timber clad, Manhattan loft style buildings, set within the lion's natural and spacious habitat. Featuring picture windows in both the master bedroom and the open plan living area, guests will be just a breath away from magnificent lions."

It goes on: "At both lodges, large windows face out onto our tigers so you can sleep within a whisker of these impressive big cats. French doors lead from the master bedrooms to the private balconies and offer breathtaking views across the area."

But if that wasn't enough to convince you to fork our with your life savings, then check this out.

While you stare out at the animals that almost certainly had no desire to be living in Kent, you can lie back and sip on a bottle of bubbly, chow down on your full English, and you even get a complimentary truck safari from Base Camp.

They really aren't kidding about fully immersive.

But if lions aren't your thing, then fear not, they also have a tiger lodge and a wolf lodge.

Similar to the lion lodge, guests get exclusive access to the 'wildlife', with golf buggy trips out into the enclosure.

And what's better, each loft comes complete with a 'log burner, mini bar, Nespresso machine, games and books, as well 4K TV and a record player'.

What are you waiting for?
