Top Animal Encounters

Lions, tigers and bears... you'll find them all in Kent! Go wild with big cats, gorillas and elephants, enjoy family friendly days out at the farm, get up close with the local wildlife, or take a boat trip to see the seals.

Meet the mighty T-Rex at Wingham Wildlife Park, go on safari right in the heart of the Kent countryside at Port Lympne Reserve, or discover over 400 animals at Howletts Wild Animal Park. While at Wildwood Trust, you'll even find bears living within the 40 acres of ancient woodland!

If you're looking for encounters with animals on the smaller side, kids will love the farm animals at the Rare Breeds Centre, while the Kent Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre is the perfect place for local wildlife discoveries.
