Enhance Your Visit
Whether you are visiting Watatunga for business or pleasure, you can enhance your visit by booking one or more of our experience packages, to enjoy in addition to your tour of the wildlife reserve.
Perhaps book a BBQ experience in our newly erected stretch tent around the BBQ area, overlooking our stunning lake. You and your party can relax and take in the peaceful ambience of the wildlife reserve, while you enjoy your food. Delicious food can be provided, or self-catering options are available.
For wildlife photography fans, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, you can enhance your experience at Watatunga with a photography experience. An ideal opportunity to capture some incredible images of wonderful animals and stunning landscapes, this is the perfect chance to get close to nature, extend your photography skills and learn more about the work we do.
Corporate groups love visiting Watatunga for meetings, team building and team away days, with a difference! Not only can you and your team escape the office and experience the beauty of the reserve, but we also have meeting and event spaces available for hire to host your event.
Budding photographers can book a photography tuition experience, exploring the reverse with our expert guide and wildlife photography specialist. Whilst more seasoned photographers and photography groups can book a photography experience, without a tutor, but with an expert guide, setting off in our open sided safari-trailer and discovering the reserve on foot where possible.
BBQ Hut Experience
For those who wish to dwell a little longer on the reserve, our cosy wooden BBQ Hut and adjoining open-sided Stretch Tent is available to book for self-catering or private dining experiences, perhaps to enjoy after a private tour of the reserve. With stunning views across the lake and the reserve beyond, our BBQ experience is often booked for special occasions, birthday treats and anniversary celebrations, plus corporate meetings and events.
Watatunga hosts corporate experiences for client meetings, colleague away days, staff incentives and team building experiences, with a difference. Corporate organisations are welcomed to the reserve for private buggy tours of the nature reserve and use of either the Sustainable Wooden Chalet, uniquely styled as a mini natural history museum for up to 12 people, or the Luxury Stretch Tent for up to 20. With catering options for lunches, and optional add-on experiences, like wreath making, bushcraft and foraging, we’ll create bespoke experiences tailored to your company’s requirements.
