Wingham Wildlife Park, Wingham

4.3
#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Kent
First opened in 1986 as a bird park, Wingham Wildlife Park expanded into a wildlife park containing over 200 species, including a number of endangered species. Spanning an area of 10.5 hectares (26 acres), the zoo divides into several key areas. The tropical house features tropical plants, fish ponds, and free-roaming tropical birds. The reptile house contains 46 species of reptiles, including dwarf crocodiles and rhinoceros iguanas. The mandrill island houses a troop of colorful mandrills. Refer to the timetable to find talks and feeding exhibitions, and be sure to try to include the red panda talk and tiger feeding in your schedule. The soft indoor play area acts as a change of scenery for kids when they need a break from the animals.

  • Fantastic value lovely seeing the on going improvements to benefit the animals. As always you can experience the animals as close as health & safety allow. The orang utangs are a great addition.  more »
  • We loved Wingham from the early days of renovation from the bird park. We’ve seen Troy and Blade grow from little bottle-fed kittens to the majestic monsters they are today. The park is...  more »

  • A great day out for the family. Facilities are excellent and the park is in good condition. Particularly enjoyed the Himalayan animals area - this is new and no doubt will be developed more. All staff we came in contact with were pleasant and friendly. Do be prepared for a bit of a wait at the cafe however, as this does get very busy and there’s often a long line. V easy parking. Recommend.
  • Great place for the family. Lots of benches for the family to sit down or for picnics. Generally a really clean with lots of bins around. The animals were great and got to see all but 2. My 3 year old boy loved the dinosaurs. The children loved the big play area to which we were able to sit down, feed our baby whilst watching our kids burn some energy. All in all a great family day out.
  • I personally really enjoyed this place as well as the children so many different things to do! Also you are so close the the animals it is incredible. The workers are happy to talk to you and are ready for any question you throw their way! Really enjoyable experience myself and the children loved it!
  • Always expanding! There is something different to see every time you go. The keepers are friendly and informative. Plenty of seats on the way round to relax and cover for rainy/hot days and an enormous play area both inside and out to enjoy. A season pass is highly recommended so you can come back at any point (even just to enjoy the spectacular play area).
  • This place has a broad range of animals and isn't as spread out as some others so getting around it is easy. Many enclosures were missing information about the animals inside and the lake areas needed some attention to get rid of weeds. There seemed like there were far too many carp in a very small pond in the tropical house too. All in all enjoyed our visit though.
