Add Port Lympne Wild Animal Park to your Itinerary

Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Hythe, Kent - c Dave Rolfe

Fun for all the family! Port Lympne is one of the largest wild animal parks in the UK and home to over 700 rare and endangered animals, including western lowland gorillas, the largest herd of black rhino in the UK, big cats, small cats, primates and more.

Jump on board a safari truck and encounter the UK’s original and authentic African Experience: 100 acres where over 200 wild animals, including giraffe, black rhino, ostrich, zebra and more can be seen roaming freely as if on the plains of Africa.

We’re also world-renowned for our successful breeding programmes and commitment to conservation. With an all new calendar of events in 2014, there will be lots to keep the whole family entertained, giving you more reasons to come back again and again!
