"We visited Wingham Wildlife Park late July 2010 and loved…"
We visited Wingham Wildlife Park late July 2010 and loved it. I have 3 children, a son of 11 and 7 year old boy/girl twins. We visit this part of Kent every year for a holiday and have overlooked it in the past in favour of Howletts nearby. It's far more interactive with the butterfly room being the jewel in the crown for me personally. My older son loves meerkats and was chuffed to be able to see them so close up and feed them too. The twins had a great time with the chipmunks running around a purpose built tubular 'run' that allowed them to run above them. They also loved the prarie dogs (similar looking to chipmunks)- you can actually go into thier 'world'. There's good parking, cafes and a great park and you are also able to take a picnic if you prefer. Good value and great photos from the day.Read moreLess
"We, that's mum, dad, 2.5 year old daughter and year…"
We, that's mum, dad, 2.5 year old daughter and year old son, loved Wingham Wildlife park. Located just between Canterbury and Sandwich, parking is easy, and entry is pretty great value as you receive entry to a beautifully presented animal park with a range of animals including llamas, lemurs, alligators and fruit bats.
You can walk into the lemur enclosure, and if you're lucky they will land on you as they jump around!
Twice a day there is a meet the animals - we all held a snake last time, stroked a hedgehog and petted an iguana!
A range of friendly birds are wandering around at will, and you can purchase seed to feed them.
There's a cafe offering a good selection of snacks and meals..
And really great is the HUGE playground with swings, climbing frames, slides and playhouse.
A great day out - a hidden gem in the Kent countryside.Read moreLess
