Which are your brood’s favourite critters? Chances are they’ll spot them at Howletts Wild Animal Park, with over 400 intriguing animals all waiting to meet you.

Classics come with the largest herd of African elephants in the UK, the primates enclosure or a super slinky Amur tiger called Arina, but did you know though that Kent’s only giant anteaters live here too? Discover new breeds and make four-legged friends as you go.

The park has a thriving breeding programme designed to protect some of the most vulnerable species around, like the 15 black rhinos who can be seen scooting around their enclosure. As well as learning loads about them in daily talks and feeds, kids can also channel their inner cheeky monkeys in a dedicated play area or on the treetop challenge. That’s well worth a whoop or two!
