Meet the animals
There are over 760 rare and endangered animals that call Port Lympne Reserve their home. Whilst you explore 600 acres, see our magnificent rhinos, cheetah, tigers, bears, gorillas and much more. Conservation is at the heart of what we do, so you can learn a little more about these beautiful animals during your short break. Your visit helps towards the care of our animals, and in turn our conservation work in the UK and overseas in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation.
Explore the Reserve
Enjoy 15 acres of landscaped gardens in the hotel grounds or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery that Port Lympne has to offer. Explore the 600 acre reserve on your own personal golf buggy, then take a safari ride to visit our South American, Asian and African experiences where the animals roam freely. There's plenty to explore.
