Moomba Lodge Pagel

Child friendly glamping, Midi-Pyrenees – Luxury Safari Lodges for Family Glamping in Catus South West France

About Moomba Lodge Pagel

Pagel's new Glamping experience offers a fun, adventurous and authentic way to reconnect with nature in France in the sun without compromise. Moomba guests benefit from all of the onsite facilities at Pagel including the 10 metre pirate ship, play barn, meadow maze and rocket ship - there's so much fun to be had.


These 2 safari tents on the wonderful Pagel site are a fab choice for families wanting the adventure of glamping with the luxury and convenience of a child-focussed site. Pagel is a perfect place for families, where kids can explore and grown-ups can unwind. You’ll be able to relax knowing the little ones have bags of space to run around in, and activities to enjoy. Dedicated to families with young children, everything has been thought of for them - which means you can have some family fun and get some time to yourself to make the most of this stunning region.

The focus is on natural outdoor and imaginative play for the children, with play zones to explore, a fantastic pool, and kids clubs to keep them busy. Meanwhile take off to a vineyard, indulge in some Michelin starred cuisine, or kick back with an on-site massage.


The glamping lodges provide attractive, spacious, eco-friendly accommodation with all the comfort of a permanent structure. Combining traditional canvas and more modern fabrics you’ll get a taste of Africa  - just a little closer to home. Choose from the Elephant or Hippo lodge- and be prepared for animals (of the soft toy variety) everywhere!

The sleeping areas comprise of 1 double room, 1 cabin room with double bed and 1 single room with bunk beds and a cot. Linens and towels are provided. There’s everything from a complete furnished kitchen to your own bathroom just outside the lodge. Everything you need is inside the tent – glasses, cups, cutlery, pans, running water, cooker…the works. There is a laundry room on-site too so you’ve no need to worry about mucky clothes after a day exploring.  


On-site you’ll find 5 acres to explore, so children will be free to run, play and explore. There is a large heated swimming pool with a terrace surrounded by security fencing along with a small and heated toddler pool.  In addition to a fully managed on-site Kids’ Club 3 days a week, there are masses of good quality toys & “play zones” around the complex including a pirate ship, rocket, maze and a giant play barn. Add in climbing frames, sand pits, swings, slides and trampolines and all members of the family will find something to enjoy.

In the local village head to Le Lac Vert in Catus - a beautiful lake with a man made beach with pedalos, restaurant and play equipment. More adventurous water fun can be has by hiring canoes from Le Base Nautique de Caix - experience lots of beautiful scenery, beaches and a restaurant by the riverside.

Cap Nature is a fantastic high roped climbing park next to the river in Cahors. Walk through the park at Foret de Singe near Rocamadour, and feed the monkeys popcorn by hand.

For a great inside adventure 100 metres below ground head to Gouffre de Padirac – take a lift, then a Gondola type boat along the river and into the magical caves.

Food and Drink

Both tents have fully-equipped kitchens, and outdoor dining area and BBQ. Other food services such as a family BBQ , children's tea, and a Chef for the night service are also available.  There is a small honesty bar on site providing locally produced frozen meals and other supplies. Traditional fresh food markets are in nearby villages as well as a supermarket in the local village just 5 minutes away.

There is also a wealth of lovely restaurants and auberge's within 20 minutes drive, including a 2 Michelin star restaurant.

Kids and Parents

Pagel provides a small, friendly and safe environment for you to holiday in, dedicated to families with young children - little ones even get a welcome present on their pillow! There’s stacks of equipment and toys for the little ones so there is no need to pack up the entire house.

Take a book or two and enjoy some downtime whilst the children are in the fully managed on-site kids club, but aside from some reading material Pagel provide pretty much everything - just take your imaginations!

Book a babysitter and enjoy an evening out at one of the numerous local restaurants, or just take it easy with a massage or pedicure on-site.


Make use of the Friday adventure and craft sessions for children, followed by a light tea - perfect timing for parents to pack up for the journey home.

The Owner

Our passion for Pagel is if anything more intense now after sixteen years. Our aim has been to create Pagel specifically, and only, for families with young babies, toddlers and children.

I cannot tell you how amazing it is to stand and watch pirates and princesses chasing butterflies in the lower meadow – simple, fun, imagination and childhood as it should be.”
