Your Destination

Livingstone Lodge is situated in the 100 acre wilds of the African Experience, located in Kent right here in the UK. A remarkable array of exotic animals are found here, free to roam as if they were in their natural habitat. Enjoy a multi-award winning VIP safari experience in England.

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.
