After starting life as a Wingham
bird park in 1986, Wingham Wildlife Park really spread its wings under new owners in 2008 to become one of Kent’s
most popular attractions! Located just outside the cathedral city of Canterbury, they have the largest number of animal species of all the wildlife parks and zoos in Kent.
Now the park houses a variety of different amazing animals, big and small. Winged and wingless, so there's an animal out there for everyone! Let's start off with the big animals - moon bears, and black bears visit the Chimp House and observe western chimpanzees, find the adorable red panda, goggle at the majestic tiger, laugh admire the mischievous meerkats and so much more. But that's not all! There is also a huge variety of otters, wolves, lemurs, squirrel monkeys, crocodiles and penguins too, animals from all different landscapes and environments. There are daily talks and feeds and guests can also book special experience days to allow them to get up close and personal with their favourite beast.
Don't forget to visit the Dinosaur Park! With over 29 life-like dinosaur models to ogle at, your little ones will truly be amazed! Bringing the pre-historic era back to life so brace yourself for the sound of T-rex’s roar in the background, especially with their animatronic dinosaurs. It’s most definitely a walk on the wild side! You'll be able to learn more about the pre-historic beasts, like the Triceratops, Diplodocus, Spinosaurus, Velociraptor and so many more unique and interesting dinosaurs that will make your roar with excitement!
You can also help the amazing staff take care of the animals by being a zoo keeper for a day! Spend up to 20 minutes with giraffes and other animals, as you feed them treats and see them up close and personal. You can choose from Arctic wolves, cheetahs, otters, sloths, a tiger experience and even a giant tortoise! With lots of animals to see and interact with, you'll have a fantastic time and make lifelong memories.
More Than Just Animals
Did you think that was all? The fun never stops here! The kids can enjoy themselves in the soft play area, have a go at an 18-hole mini-golf course or wander around the museum. But they can also enjoy some more animal attractions such as the Reptile House and Tropical House, as well as the Bug House & Gardens, attend animal talks and feeding time and zoom around with some go-karting!
