Visit Howletts Wild Animal Park, near Canterbury to enjoy super summer days out from Saturday 22 July to Sunday 3 September 2017.

Schools out for a super six weeks, so make the most of it with the family and explore Kent's original wild animal park, home to the largest herd of African elephants in the UK, more leopards than anywhere else in the county, including snow leopards, Northern Chinese leopards and elusive clouded leopards. Walk with lemurs, in our beautiful leafy lemur garden, as the playful primates explore the branches overheard and see if you can spot our adorable new lemur baby!

Take part in our Tropical Trail to be in with a chance of winning a Junior Ranger or Keeper Academy experience! Plus, our Education Presenters will be holding fact packed talks, so you can discover more about your favourite animals.

Pop into the Education Centre to make your very own sandimal and take part in other crafts and activities including mask making, whilst you're there. Plus, the popular Treetop and Animal Adventure Challenges will be open everyday, perfect for young and old adventurers alike!

Every weekend throughout the summer break, you'll be able to discover more about some of our most popular animals and, for a small donation to The Aspinall Foundation, you'll be able to take part in themed games to win prizes!

Don't forget you can save 10% off day tickets when you book online up to midnight the day before your visit.
