Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve

Nature & Wildlife

Explore Kent’s largest wild animal park, home to the county’s only spectacled bears and the UK’s largest herd of black rhinos as well as gorillas, lions, tapirs, monkeys and many more endangered animals. Head out on safari and encounter free roaming herds of giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and more while you enjoy the spectacular views of the coastline. Step back in time when you enter Dinosaur Forest to meet life-sized prehistoric creatures lurking in the 3 acre woodland. The many restaurants, play areas, tranquil walkways and stunning views make Port Lympne Reserve the ideal day out for all the family!

Make your day out extra special when you book additional activities, including bespoke safaris, animal encounters and keeper for a day experiences. Restaurants and kiosks are located around the park providing a variety of family favourites, authentic Italian cuisine and hot and cold snacks.
