Wingham Wildlife Park is set within 26 acres in which we display over 200 different species... That’s more than any other zoo in Kent! Additionally, we are the only park in Kent where you can visit moon bears, chimpanzees and penguins! As well as the all-important animal collection we have 2 large play areas, both indoors and outdoors plus a sheltered tropical house, reptile house, chimpanzee exhibit and museum which can all be enjoyed whatever the weather. Furthermore, there are 2 restaurants (although one may be shut in the winter season), several toilets including disabled toilets and baby changing facilities, plus discover a wide variety of animal talks, feeds, encounters and experiences for a roarsome day out in Kent!
