Step into your own luxury safari experience at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve.

The UK’s original and authentic safari experience gives you an animal adventure unlike any zoo. Over 90 species and 766 animals roam within the 600 acres. You’ll be taken to the plains of Africa and Asia to watch the big cats; gorillas and primates roam free and discover the land that time forgot in Dinosaur Forest!

The luxury doesn’t end when you step out of the safari, the African themed restaurant features a log burning stove and will cook up your delicious four-course meal on an open fire pit. There’s the opportunity to feed the animals, guided tours and lots to see and learn for the whole family, as well as extra special animal encounters bookable at an additional cost.

Have a roaring good time on this awesome family safari!
