PORT LYMPNE WILDLIFE PARK
Port Lympne Wildlife park is located on the South coast near the town of Hythe.
Port Lympne was established when the estate was purchased in 1973 by John Aspinall to solve lack of space at Howletts Wild Animal Park and it was opened to the public in 1976.
The Park has over 650 animals including Rhinos, Gorillas, Lions, Tigers and Monkeys, many in large outdoor enclosures.
As well as the animals, there is a historic mansion with lovely gardens.
Royalty and many other famous people have stayed at the mansion at
the centre of the park. The rooms are lavishly decorated and the
landscaped gardens take full advantage of the spectacular views of Romney Marsh.
Port Lympne is focused on returning endangered animals back to the wild, since conception, many animals have been reared and released back to their natural environment.
