Howletts Wild Animal Park

Howletts Wild Animal Park, near Canterbury, is Kent’s original wild animal park. Set over 90 acres of historic parkland, it’s an ideal day out for the entire family.

You’ll see the largest herd of African elephants in the UK, including our elephant calf and over 400 of the world’s endangered animals.  Come face to face with lions, tigers, black rhino and our world famous family of Western lowland gorillas, plus walk with lemurs in their leafy garden as they play in the branches above and around you.
Don’t forget to look out for our adorable new arrivals as you wander the wooded pathways and later, explore Animals of the Ice Age to see life sized models of creatures from a land once frozen in time.  Plus, test your skills on our fun obstacle courses, The Treetop and Animal Adventure Challenges too.
