Home to over 700 rare and endangered animals, including the largest herd of black rhino in the UK, the only giraffe in Kent, gorillas, tigers, lions, leopards, bears and so much more, conservation is at the heart of this Reserve.

Get up-close with life size prehistoric creatures in the popular attraction, Dinosaur Forest and wander the leafy pathways to discover where the wild things are. Book an unforgettable animal experience, enjoy a private safari or take part in other activities including laser clay and zorbing!

Stay at the stunning Tiger Lodge where you can sleep within a whisker of the resident Amur tigers. Enjoy breath-taking coastal views from your private balcony and explore the Reserve in your personal golf buggy – there’s nowhere else in the world quite like it!

Or try the recently opened historic cottage, Wolf Lodge. An unforgettable overnight experience, where you can be part of the pack, as you sleep beside wolves that roam freely in their wooded garden habitat next door. 

Whilst you’re here, pop in to the 4* Port Lympne Hotel where you can eat, drink, get married, hold your next business event and host an incredible party.  Enjoy the incredible gardens, hand painted mural rooms, stunning terraces and the newly restored Moroccan Courtyard, with its relaxed atmosphere and wonderful original features, decorated with antiques handpicked from the markets of Marrakech – it’s the ideal space to get away from it all.

Whether you visit for the day, dine at one of the restaurants, or stay at one of the unique accommodations, Port Lympne is a hidden gem, just waiting to be discovered in this district.
