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.

Lovely place. Not too big which means you can get round to everything but lots of different species. The staff were great esp those that care for the animals and do the feeding shows and tell you abou... read more »
Wonderful place to go see the animals and for the kids to burn off some energy. They have a good number of educational talks at different times of the day so well worth taking a look at what is on. Penguins going for a walk is my daughters favourite. The only down side is the price of the refreshments. Plan to take you own if the weather is nice. However if bad weather whilst there is some shelter for eating it doesn't protect from the wind so will still be cold. Having said that its a great place to go and spend a couple of hours.
I didn't know what to expect after reviews, but I took my 20 month old Granddaughter and we had a brilliant day. Great paths walkways all tarmac once into the park. Good selection of Animals and easy viewing Evie loved it ! lunch in the cafe was priced fair same as another attraction however they have plenty of picnic area's if you bring your own (just cant eat it in the restaurant which I understand Tables for peoples purchasing food drinks) The new dinosaur area is great fun and they are realistic although probably 20mth old was scared as the sound affects but I loved it ! finished off in the soft play area Great value . I upgraded to a year pass on way out and will be back often Had a great time. Unfair reviews by others You only take your shoes off if you go into the area where the soft play is through the locked gate its a Animal Park of course you cant walk into the area that kids are playing in they even sell socks for those who have none on £1 now that's not making money I was totally impressed what a difference to a a few years ago when I visited. They rescue animals and they are the lucky few honestly its a great park we paid £8.95 to visit the cinema this has huge upkeep / staffing feeding costs its good value day out !
The zoo is really great so much better than the other zoo in the area. They seem to be reinvesting the money back into the park which is really nice to see.
This is a fantastic little zoo / wildlife park for all ages. While its nowhere near as large and well populated as its neighbour, Howletts, Wingham is a great place to visit with younger children. It's easy for them to navigate (toddler and up) and has clear views to all of the animals. There is a great (if not usually overly busy) soft play area. The only thing that lets the park down is the lack of any decent food inside. There is food facilities in the soft play area, but there is nothing healthy, even for kids, which is a big let down. The food that is available is quite poor and very overpriced. The yearly pass is well worth it, after 2 visits it pays for itself. Highly recommended.
Had a brilliant day with three year old son. The Dinosaur park is wonderful. This park is amazing compared to others nearby as you have have close encounter with birds, animals and also considering the price which is cheaper.
