Wingham Wildlife Park is a walk-through zoo where you can get close to over 200 different species of wild animal.
Situated just off the A257 between Canterbury and Sandwich, the attraction started life as a bird park, but now contains more different animal species than any other zoo in Kent. Some of the animals you can see include penguins, tigers, jaguars, pumas, lions, crocodiles, lemurs, bats, meerkats, parrots, flying foxes, reindeer, red pandas, flamingos, wolves, otters, tortoises, butterflies and birds of prey. Indoor areas include a reptile house, the parrot house, the tropical house which has bats and a butterly room and the education centre where they hold the daily handling sessions. Other daily scheduled activities are the keeper talks and feeding times. Various animal and keeper day experiences can be arranged for an extra fee.
