Check in time is from 2pm. Check out time is 10am.

If guests are unable to arrive before 3pm, Jabiru Safari Lodge must be notified in advance. The main entrance gate to Jabiru Safari Lodge is locked daily at 4:30pm. If guests’ arrival is after this time, arrangements can be made for late access.


  • We recommend a 2 night stay at the Jabiru Safari Lodge if time permits to give you time to explore the conservation park and participate in all activities.

  • There are no telephones or televisions in any cabins
