Livingstone Cottage

Livingstone Cottage is a luxury VIP African experience with magnificent views over the Kent coast, set within the 600 acres that make up the world famous Port Lympne Wild Animal Park. Guests enjoy a magical stay in chic accommodation with first class authentic African fine dining - freshly cooked by your personal chef - and VIP safaris guided by expert rangers with firsthand knowledge of working on safari and wild animal reserves in Africa.

The guided VIP safaris afford guests close views of animals such as giraffe, black rhino and zebra, roaming freely over 100 acres of Kentish savannah at the wild animal park, known as The African Experience, whilst the rangers share details of the conservation work carried out by The Aspinall Foundation and tales of their own experiences on the plains of Africa.

Perfectly suited for friends or family the sumptuous cottage is surrounded by private gardens ideal for relaxing before dinner with a cocktail whilst enjoying the views and the sounds of the Serengeti.  In the cooler months a roaring fire in the cosy snug provides the ideal backdrop for canapés and champagne as chef prepares the mouth watering African meal.

Livingstone Cottage offers three stunning double bedrooms, two of which enjoy an en suite bathroom and a twin room.  The bridal suite includes a four poster bed and en suite with far reaching views over the unique Kentish savannah and black rhino paddocks.
