  • We took our 4 year old for her birthday as a lovely day out. The park is quite hilly and some of the animals were hiding in there enclosures but we saw a wide array of animals whilst visiting the reserve. The safari truck ride was almost an hour all together and there is a stop at the top with reptiles, meerkats and a gift shop. A great family day just a little expensive too, would advise to book in advance
  • Brill! Lovely setting and good re-creation of a natural habitat for some interesting animals. A good walk, if not a bit hilly! However the African experience and truck rides through the reserve offers spectacular up close views of many animals including Rhino, giraffe, antelope etc. Plenty of good food stops and coffee places to recharge along the way.
  • I wonder if I visited the same park as some of the other reviews! Please don't go if you are expecting every animal to appear to command-you will be disappointed. However, if you have a love for wildlife and a thirst for knowledge, then this is the place for you. Plan you visit and go to the talks and feeding times. If you are worried about any aspect of the welfare of the animals-ask! There are reasons behind everything that happens and this place would not exist if they didn't have an absolute passion for the welfare and conservation of the animals. And if you have chance, book a safari -worth every penny!
  • I enjoyed my visit to Port Lympne, I think going on a weekday is the best time to visit as it was quite quiet and we didn't have to wait long for transports etc, inside. Having been to both, If I had to chose between Port Lympne and Wingham wildlife park, I would probably choose Wingham, had a lot of fun there.
  • Port lympne is an incredible place to visit for the family. We stayed over night in one of their pods just outside the wolves enclosure,an amazing experience. The accommodation is top class and very clean. The toilets and shower facilities are very clean and the staff are very friendly. The food is very good and if you stay over night they also offer a bbq pack with them bringing your own bbq. A must for the family
