One of those places that's not too big and not too small. When I visited, they were constructing a new visitor centre on a site that has grown over the years and has become very popular. Quite an array of wildlife are on show and the opportunity to walk amongst the Lemurs and Penguins adds to the special atmosphere of... More

Well what a top little find and thanks to info from previous reviews we found this little gem easily on route to a windy beach walk at Whitstable. Great range of animals. Early visit meant they were all up and about and excitedly feeding on their various breakfasts. The enclosures are sensitive to the needs of the animals whilst ensuring... More

I am torn between Very good and excellent for an overall rating, but decided on Very Good. My son & daughter had visited the park with their children and was complimentary about it and they suggested there were special things you could participate in, at a an extra cost. One was to feed the penguins. Now as these are one... More

My little granddaughter visited for the first time in a few years and we took her to Wingham. The weather was awful but who cares!? 4 adults and 1 small child cost £68 so not a cheap day out but when you consider the cost to feed and keep the numerous animals I believe it is money well spent. Would... More

When we drew up we were rather concerned about what we had let ourselves in for, however, i would say that the car park was the worst feature of the place. The car park was scruffy and messy. Once we got inside it was a different story. The animals looked healthy and in good condition. There was a lot to... More

Dear Claire C, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our park and choosing to come to us... More importantly for deciding to pass through the car park and give us a try.

... now increased since I last went there many years ago!Nice to see the new entrance & exit etc BUT the car park & approach track needs attention - more puddles & potholes than road; also around the park, the main attractions are surrounded by a quagmire, so bearing in mind a wet winter is forecast, is it not time...

Dear Beddington210, Thank you for choosing to visit our park and taking the time to review your experience. The car park is a problem for us, especially at this time of year where the wet and changes in temperature make the ground unstable, coupled with the insistence of lorries to come and turn around in our car park, despite the...

Dear MrCoffeeBean, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience and taking a chance with us on a wet day - it is always great to hear from people who enjoyed themselves so much that they wanted to get season tickets.
