OPENS SPRING 2018
Be Part of the Pack at Wolf Lodge
Join us at our newly renovated historic cottage, Wolf Lodge. A completely unique overnight experience where you can sleep beside wolves that roam freely in their wooded garden enclosure next door.
Connected to the lodge is an incredible vantage point for viewing the wolves – a private treetop retreat, just for you. From your viewing pod, you can watch the wolves playing from above in their natural habitat.
Unique viewing pod
Originally one of the gatehouses of Philip Sassoon’s estate, this charming grade 2 listed cottage has two King size bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms, plus a cosy cinema room and kitchenette nook.
Unique viewing pod
Immerse yourself in the world of our wolves from the unique vantage point, of your private treetop retreat, the only viewing area of its kind in the world, situated above our natural wolf habitat.
Create unforgettable memories, as you enjoy a glass of champagne and look down from your bespoke, hand crafted viewing sphere, whilst the wonderful wolves pad through their wooded habitat below.
A stay at Wolf Lodge includes your own personal golf buggy and access to routes and pathways that are not normally open to our day visitors, so you can explore the stunning natural surroundings of the Reserve, take in the incredible views and watch the animals in style.
Set within the 600 acre wildlife park, Wolf Lodge is located between our award winning Treehouse Hotel and our historic four star hotel. After a day exploring the Reserve in your personal golf buggy and getting back to nature, you can relax above the lodge’s secluded garden, in your unique viewing pod, accessed by rope bridges and watch our beautiful wolves below.
Set in a beautiful landscaped garden, at the heart of Port Lympne Reserve, Babydoll’s Wood Fired Pizza is sure to delight lovers of authentic Italian cuisine. The stylish restaurant, has been named after the much loved gorilla, Babydoll, who at the grand old age of 55, is the last surviving original Howletts gorilla.
Open every day from 12.00pm to 10.00pm you can relax in the garden, or curl up on the comfy sofas and armchairs on the veranda with a glass of prosecco and a selection of antipasti, before tucking in to a freshly prepared wood fired pizza or pasta dish. We also offer gluten free pizza, alongside a selection of wines, beers and non alcoholic drinks.
Alternatively, book a table at the four star Port Lympne Hotel, just a short buggy ride away or enjoy a meal at the Bear Lodge Clubhouse (in season) or Pinewood Café. We use the very best seasonal produce from our own vegetable and herb gardens and locally sourced ingredients wherever we can in our restaurants.
After a day spent exploring the Reserve in your personal golf buggy, why not relax at the Treehouse Clubhouse and enjoy the roaring indoor fire in the winter, or bask in the afternoon sun on the lawns in the summer. You can enjoy a drink from the well-stocked bar, as you chat to your fellow guests and our rangers, or play games and enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fire pits as you toast marshmallows and watch the sun set over the rhino paddocks.
After a day exploring the wilds of the 600 acre Reserve, climb the rope bridges to relax in your private viewing pod, set in the trees as your wolf neighbours pad through their home below. Later, curl up with your pack as you watch a film in the cosy cinema snug or jump on your golf buggy and explore as dusk falls upon the Reserve.
