Ever dreamed of camping in the city? Now’s your chance to escape the dull city streets by heading to the Wickham’s Jungle X Camp. The venue has been transformed with leopard print tents, tropical ferns and summery vibes for the ultimate urban glamping experience. 

Their fancy tents can accommodate 2-12 campers, who will get to recline and dine in the jungle oasis. It's not a sleepover situation, but you'll be able to pack a lot of adventure into the lunch or dinnertime camp sessions.

The special menu for the season includes elephant-sized grazing plates of cheese and charcuterie, sizzling pizzas and sliders, plus everyone’s summer favourite, banana splits, for dessert. Wash it all down with some ‘jungle juice’ (aka your choice of wine, beer or spirits) and stretch out to let it all settle.

When you’ve had your fill, prepare your loincloths and get wild on the dancefloor at the UV Jungle Party on August 9. It’ll be a glowing groove sesh with DJs, drag performances and neon body painters keeping you colourful while you sip glowing cocktails. They’re scrapping the cover charge and setting up extra surprises for anyone who books the safari tents for the evening.

The Jungle X Camp will be bringing more tropical fun to Brisbane until the end of September. They’re available to book every day for $59 per person, which includes your royal jungle feast. There’s limited availability for these glam campers, so be sure to organise your party in advance.
