We are closed
Coronavirus update: 4th January 2021 - In light of the recent government announcement placing the UK under alert level 5 and the reinstatement of a nationwide lockdown, we have closed Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve and Howletts Wild Animal Park to the public. We are awaiting further government guidance and will work to reopen the both parks to guests as soon as it is appropriate to do so. We will be contacting guests with upcoming bookings to advise them on next steps.
As a charity, we appreciate your support and understanding. This is an unprecedented situation and during these incredibly challenging times we ask you to consider donating to our Animal Support Fund and contribute towards the feeding and care of our animals.Animal Support Fund
Guided by one of our expert rangers, you’ll be transported to our Asian and African Experiences in a 90 minute tour, learning more about the animals you’ll see on the way. Discover more about our breeding programmes to help save critically endangered animals including black rhino, Rothschild giraffe, and western lowland gorillas and how we work with the conservation charity The Aspinall Foundation, to protect animals and their habitats in the wild! There will be plenty of opportunities to take great pictures along the way!
