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.

  • A nice flat park. Plenty of animals and well kept. It is obvious they are up dating to have other animals with new enclosures.  more »

  • Fantastic little gem. Our first visit in early 2018, cold but so enjoyable. Good variety of animals. Good selection of big cats. Bird house, feed the wallabies & goats fun too. Ape house is very smelly but getting over the smell paid dividends when we got to see a baby chimpanzee being cared for by her family.
  • Always a good day out. Could easily spend an entire day or just go for a quick stroll. The animals are really looked after, and many of them have been rescued from the circus, from smaller caged zoos, etc. The price for the day entry can be quite pricey but they have to charge that to fund the upkeep of the animals. On the other hand the yearly pass is very good value for money. The park is also very child friendly with an indoor and outdoor play area.
  • Loved it, would recommend it to all. Seems expensive at first but you could easily spend the whole day there, so it works out as good value. Lots of different things to keep the kids occupied and the adults can relax watching the antics of the animals or just chilling out in the grounds. Places to eat but also be good with your own picnic
  • Great day out here with husband and we enjoyed a 'tiger experience' for his birthday - we were held up in traffic and in danger of missing our allotted time so i rang to explain expecting to have to rearrange or miss out completely - straight away it was arranged with tiger keeper Lucy that we could do the experience at 130 instead. We were delighted at the whole thing and attention to the detail of making the day great. Thank you
  • Fantastic day out for the family. Lots of animals and some of the smaller animals have freedom to roam around. Lots of space for the kids to play. Dinosaur park is a great addition. Plenty of parking space and well worth visiting for a great day out!
