Did you know that we are a charity and that your admission helps us to save rare and endangered animals! Our Gift Aid admission prices include a donation to our parks conservation work and enable us to claim Gift Aid on your admission. They are 10% more than our standard ticket prices. You will be asked to pay the donation price unless you request to pay the standard admission price. Your support helps us to fund our vital conservation work.
What will you see?
In the reserve
Put your best walking shoes on! Wander the paths and wooded walkways to discover gorillas, big cats, rhinos, monkeys and more dotted around the ancient parkland. Step into a land that time forgot at Dinosaur Forest and relax and unwind at our variety of restaurants.
Enjoy a trip to the South American, Asian and African experiences to visit Kent's only spectacled bears, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, camels and more - all wandering freely on the Kentish savannah!
Concessionary Tickets & Carers
Concessionary tickets are discounted from the standard full price admission.
A concessionary day ticket will permit entrance for one day and we allow one free carer on production of DLA or PIP letters. Concessionary tickets do not apply to children under 3 as they are entitled to free entry. However, if the child under 3 years old requires a registered carer, the registered carer will be required to purchase a concessionary rate adult day ticket.
The disabled person, companion or carer must show the following identification to qualify for concessionary rates and/or access to our carer card; Benefit Award Letter from the Department for Work and Pensions (e.g. for Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance or Incapacity Benefit) or a Blue Badge.
Gift aid it
Your ticket helps us to protect endangered animals. Our price includes a 10% donation to our charitable work which allows us to claim tax back from the government’s Gift Aid scheme. So, for every £1 you spend, we get an extra 25p towards our charity work.Book tickets
