Overlooking our expertly-designed naturalistic leopard enclosure, Leopard Creek offers three ways to stay. Choose from cosy 2-person Cubs, stylish 4-person Cabins (two adults and two small children) or luxurious 4-person Wigwams (two adults and two children).
Each Cub, Cabin and Wigwam features bespoke interiors carefully designed by our Design Director, Victoria Aspinall. Leopard Creek promises a lavish retreat from the outside world where your neighbours are a pair of majestic Amur leopards.
Leopard Creek at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve joins Lion Lodge and Tiger Lodge as one of our most luxurious and exclusive accommodations. Leopard Creek guests are able to sleep just metres away from Port Lympne's rarest and most elegant cats in individually-designed cabins finished to the highest standard.
Featuring exceptional sea views from private outside seating areas, Leopard Creek will offer stunning accommodation perfect for all seasons.

Milena and Sayan were introduced here at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve. The pair are Amur leopards, a critically endangered subspecies considered to be one of the rarest felines in the world. The species originally comes from the forests of eastern Russia, where less than 70 are thought to remain.
Their main threats are poaching for their fur, the hunting of their prey species by humans and habitat loss caused by the expansion of farms and cities.
Amur leopards are powerful jumpers and fast runners, capable of reaching 37 miles per hour.
When staying at Leopard Creek, you will enjoy 24-hour viewing of our Amur leopard enclosure, allowing observation of these exceptionally rare and beautiful cats' natural behaviours, something very few people have experienced.
