Bear Lodge is situated in the 600 acres of Port Lympne Reserve with unrivalled views across the Romney Marsh and English Channel. Enjoy a remarkable array of exotic rare and endangered animals with many roaming free across the African and Asian experiences.

The Aspinall Foundation is an internationally renowned animal conservation charity that works in conjunction with Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks. Together they are committed to the breeding, reintroduction and protection of rare and endangered species.

Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks are different from conventional zoos, the focus is on providing as natural an environment as possible for the animals in their care, to facilitate our successful breeding programmes. The Aspinall Foundation is a charity that relies on support from the general public to fund its back to the wild programme, and vital animal protection projects in Africa, Madagascar and Java, as well as other projects around the world that are protecting some of the world's most endangered species.

Regular evening activities include walking tours of the park, animal feeds with a ranger and evening safari tours of the park when it is closed to the general public.
