For the ultimate safari experience right here in Wales, sleep next door to our world-class zoo.
Our safari tents offer something that little bit different for your glamping holiday accommodation. Voted Pembrokeshire’s Glamping Provider of the year, children will love staying in our giraffe-themed safari tents and they’ll enjoy visiting our herd of giraffe with unlimited entry to our farm park and zoo included in your glamping stay. Parents will love cosy camping in our large, furnished tents with kitchen and dining area, living room and family shower room. No smoothing out your groundsheet or pitching your tent and no trekking to the toilet in the middle of the night. Just rock up, sit back and relax!
Always wanted to go on safari? But don’t fancy the long distance travel? Then we’ve got you covered. Our Twiga Tents bring a touch of safari style with the home comforts of luxury camping. With giraffe-themed interior decor and rustic safari styling throughout, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re on the plains of Africa and not in the heart of rural Pembrokeshire! You may even spot our Eastern black rhino from your tent and you’ll be able to visit some African animals, as well as some from every continent, at our world-class zoo – rated a top ten zoo in the world on TripAdvisor.
Wrap up! It’s camping after all.
Our Twiga Tents are canvas structures to give you all the safari feels and we’ve gone that extra mile with insulated walls and ceilings but you’ll still want to bring warm clothing for the evenings just as you would with standard camping. You’ll be at one with nature with this glamping experience but we do provide some luxuries over standard camping such as all your bedding and towelling needs, en-suite bathroom and basic cooking facilities. We’ve also provided plenty of blankets for those chilly evenings!

Twiga Tent reviews
"Love the Twiga Tents! You won't regret this amazing unique glamping experience."
"We’ve just had the most amazing week staying here on the park, cozy and clean the tents don’t even fell like tents. With heaters in every room and plenty of space and kitchen area the whole stay was perfect from start to finish. Staff were amazing and always super helpful. We’re already coming back."
"We absolutely loved our stay, the tents are cosy, spotlessly clean and you don’t even feel like your in a tent when inside, we will definitely be coming back! Unlimited access to Folly Farm throughout your stay, half price wristbands for the rides! Staff were amazing, heaters in every room, was warm."
"The tent was immaculate, and absolutely stunning. I was very impressed with space considering we’re a family of four 2 little ones under 3 so only suggestion would be to have a gate at the top of the stairs. Love all the little touches too. We will definitely be back and be recommending to family!"
