VISIT KENT'S AWARD WINNING WILDLIFE ATTRACTION
See conservation in action at Howletts
Visit Howletts, Kent's original wildlife park, it's a unique adventure like no other! As we’re a conservation charity, your visit helps us to protect wildlife here in the UK, which then enables us to send animals back to the wild in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation.
With over 400 animals, including Kent’s only giant anteaters, the largest herd of African elephants in the UK, and more gorillas, tigers, leopards and monkeys than any zoo in the County, it’s a fun packed, wild day out for a great price!

Amazing day out!
We went expecting a small and relatively quick day out, but this place is full of lovely surprises and amazing animals! The best day out I had while we were in the area of Canterbury!!
Another fantastic day out.
Have been lucky to visit here and sister park Port Lympne many times. Every time see something new. Listened to the goriila talk and the rhino talk given by Emily, very interesting. Lucky to watch the baby rhino Mizzy? with her mum. So sweet .
What a great park!
We were the 2nd customers through the door just after Christmas and it was perfect. We had the Park almost to ourselves and even better all the animals were out having just been fed. Within 5 minutes we had seen 2 magnificent Black Rhino and several African Elephants at close quarters.
