We're committed to conservation and as such over 700 animals across 90 species call Port Lympne their home. Our Reserve is a haven for many rare and endangered animals and their care is at the heart of our existence. Our expert keepers look after the incredible animals that call our 600 acre park home, day in and day out and invite you to catch a glimpse into where the wild things are!

Journey to South America, Asia, and Africa on our authentic safari and see some incredible animals along the way. At Port Lympne you’ll see Kent’s only Rothschild giraffe, spectacled bears, western lowland gorillas, big cats, black rhino, primates and so much more.

If you're feeling brave, pop over to Dinosaur Forest and marvel at the tremendous T Rex, stare at the Stegosaurus, feel the terror of the Pterodactyl and delight at the sheer size of the diplodocus! Get up-close with life size prehistoric creatures in the Dinosaur Forest and wander our pathways to discover where the wild things are and make them come to life with Port Lympne's virtual reality app!

Open every day except Christmas Day.
