Your Destination

Just for you: Entrance to Port Lympne Reserve and Entrance to Howletts Wild Animal Park

Within 15 acres of landcaped gardens in the gorgeous Port Lympne Reserve, this hotel boasts wonderful views across the Romney Marsh (8 miles), the Kent coast and also the English Channel! 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 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 with a keeper and evening safari tours when the park is closed to the public.

This truly is an amazing place to stay, you will wake up in a Serengeti like environment and ask yourself - am I in Kent... or Africa? This unique experience is a must for wildlife lovers and adventurers alike.
