Our Inspector's View

Part of Jersey Zoo, the camp consists of 12 canvas geo domes set in a beautifully landscaped area. Each dome, named after different Lemur species, is sited in its own separate area offering good privacy. Inside is a king-size bed, two singles, a wood-burning stove and clothing storage space. Set on wooden decking, the domes have their own additional pod with high quality toilet, wash basin and shower plus a spacious fully-equipped kitchen. Table and chairs on the decking can be brought into the kitchen if the weather’s not so good. Smaller tipis are available for extra children or guests. Guests have free, unlimited access to Jersey Zoo during its opening hours and can visit the excellent Café Firefly, which serves breakfasts, lunches and early evening meals, plus takeaway pizzas and Thai food. The whole holiday experience is quite magical.

About The area

Discover Jersey

Jersey is the largest of the Channels Islands, but at 45.5 square miles (118 sq km) it’s still only about a third of the size of the Isle of Wight. Its human history goes back to the Neolithic period, as many megalithic tombs (knowm as dolmens) demonstrate. However, the most important history discovery of recent years was the unearthing of tens of thousands of Roman and Celtic coins in 2012. Two men with metal detectors uncovered this amazing find, and the coins are now on display at La Hougue Bie Museum. This location itself is quite a historical wonder; well-preserved Neolithic passage graves that were used for religious ceremonies around 3500 BC.

Other historic attractions on Jersey include the War Tunnels and other remnants of the German occupation, which lasted from 1940 to 1945. Liberation Day is celebrated on May 9th as Jersey’s National Day, and is an important part of the island’s calendar. Apart from its history, Jersey is well known for its potatoes and rich, creamy milk. Holiday visitors will also find plenty of opportunities for seaside pleasures, as the island has many bays and beaches.
