Stay in an African safari lodge and go wildlife spotting…..in Kent

Do you dream of going on an African safari but wonder how on earth you’ll find the money to take the whole family?  Well, our safari lodges in a wild animal park in Kent may be the answer to your dreams!  While you’re saving up for the big trip, how about spending a week or a long weekend at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent where you can stay in a safari tent, sip a sundowner from a waterhole viewpoint, and get up at the crack of dawn to go on a guided safari.
