Wingham Wildlife Park, Wingham
(4.2/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Really nice little zoo/wildlife park, it's not huge so easy to get around and you can get up close to all the animals, the big cats are all superb and look well looked after. Good variation of animals and price is reasonable too. Cafe is too expensive but then they always are. The new animatronic dinosaur exhibit is excellent for children.
  • I loved Wingham Wildlife Park, it just seemed a little more personal than the bigger Port Lympne parks. Best to take a packed lunch as the food is a little expensive, you are able to go out to your car for lunch and then go back in. However, you will not be disappointed with the variety of animals inside the park, you can see everything from Wolves to Owls, it's a great place. Highly recommended.
  • Very impressed. This is how you do a family wildlife park!! There has clearly been a lot of money and thought invested in this park recently. We found it to be very clean and well maintained throughout. It had good tarmac paths which is fantastic for pushchairs or wheelchairs. Lots of different animals in quality enclosures. Lots of activities for the kids including an outside adventure playground, indoor soft play, go karts and a dinosaur area. We found all of the staff we met to be very friendly. The food was quite basic for the money but it was fresh and hot. We will definitely visit again.
  • Very nice park, reasonably priced and the family likes to go again and again. Glad they have changed the paths to tarmac rather than dirt track and pebbles it is now a lot easier for my mother as she has to use a wheelchair from time to time for long distances. The animals look well cared for and the keepers are happy to stop and tell you about them Good soft heated indoor play area for the little people and glad they have finally got the chimps in from the US can't wait to see them just a shame my yearly pass just ran out :( For people complaining about the cost of food and other things either take your own or take a second to under stand how much it costs to maintain the park, the animals, Staff, electric gas and water bills, Licences, Training and much much more. My self and other family members are more than happy to pay the prices they charge as we know they are putting it to good use, keep up the good work WWP just a shame some people still think it costs 5p for a loaf of bread and have no understanding of the economics of the world today.
  • Lovely place to visit! Especially if you like being mugged by Lemurs! Nice mixture of animals and things to keep the kids amused.
