NOt cheap but well worth a trip. The park has slowly grown in terms the range of animalsmit has but the best bit by far is the adventure playground and soft play area. With beautiful peacocks and chickens walking around you the climbing frames and slides are a real hit. However I am impressed that the list of endangered species... More

I was very disappointed with the whole experience. Many of the animals seemed uncared for and some had even escaped. All the pond areas were so dirty that it was almost impossible to see what was supposed to be in the water. The smell of the bat cave was overwhelming and meant we could not stay looking at the animals... More

First of all, I agree with some other reviews - avoid the cafe at all costs. Far too expensive for what you get, for example I had a tuna sandwich on thin white bread and a handful of crisps for over £3.50. There wasn't even a choice of bread or a toastie/panini option. It also had too much of a... More

A 'what to do' day and we found ourselves here. The park was busy but we didn't feel that we were unable to see any exhibits because of the crowds. Paths surrounding each exhibit, which were nicely presented, providing the animals with plenty to do, places to hide etc. A relaxed feel to the place, no animals making a fuss... More

The enclosures were too small and I felt a lot of the animals were relatively unhappy. The park has a dusty, downtrodden feel to it generally. I found myself feeling sorry for the various cat species in particular, As I recall, virtually all of them were in pretty uninspiring enclosures. I thought we'd moved on from thinking that animals were... More

I visited the park on a weekday with 3 friends and our babies ranging from 6-9 months in age. Although it is smaller than your average zoo there is still plenty to see and do and I believe the entry prices are very reasonable in comparison to larger attractions. There are lots of animals ranging from lions and tigers to... More

We took our 2 year old grand daughter today. Having visited many parks and zoos over the years, this is by far the best. Close up to so many animals all of whom look happy and content in their surroundings. It was compact and she was happy to walk around all day. A great variety of animals, many of whom... More

Wingham Wildlife Park isn't the biggest but has a large collection of animals and birds. I liked the wolves who had plenty of room to roam amongst the trees. There were large cats, aligators,monkeys, ducks, snakes, rats, flamingos. You can walk through an enclosed area to see the flamingos and, at certain times of the day, walk through the monkey... More

Just got back from Wingham Wildlife park and had a fabulous time. The close up animal experiences are second to none, the animal talks were informative and the tiger feeding in particular was excellent! So much to see, and great fun for little ones- our 6 month old baby loved it as she was so close to the animals that... More
