A-May-Zing Madagascar Half Term at Howletts

Sat, 23/05/2015 (All day) to Sun, 31/05/2015 (All day)

Visitors to Howletts Wild Animal Park, one of Kent’s most popular visitor attractions, this May half term – Saturday 23rd May to Sunday 31st May 2015, can enjoy a host of free activities, games, animal talks and feeds.  There will also be the chance to win exciting prizes.

Neil Spooner, Animal Director said ‘May Half Term is the perfect time to visit Howletts with the family. We’re focusing on our Malagasy favourites – the lemurs and there’s not only the chance to win a lemur encounter but also a years’ adoption of Aprily – our female black lemur.’

The wild animal park near Canterbury is home to ‘Walking With Lemurs’ an open enclosure, where visitors can immerse themselves in the world of these Madagascan primates as they play and explore overhead.

Neil added: ‘We’re home to four sub species of lemurs and visitors will easily be able to spot the crowned, red bellied, black and the black and white ruffed lemurs in ‘Walking With Lemurs’.

In other news, the wild animal park, near Canterbury, will be celebrating its 40th birthday throughout 2015.  The county’s award winning and most successful wild animal park, has been at the forefront of conservation with successful breeding programmes for some of the world’s most endangered species including western lowland gorillas, clouded leopards and African elephants.

Neil added: ‘We’re 40 years old this year and we’re really proud of our conservation work.  Our visitors help us to continue this vital work, whilst enjoying a fun packed day out for May Half Term at a price that won’t break the bank.’
