Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent is famous for its huge range of iconic animals. Take big cats, for instance. If you want to see some heart-stoppingly beautiful ferocious felines, this is the place to go to. Get up close to the Barbary lion (extinct in the wild), the cheetah.
Endangered North Chinese leopard, the elusive snow leopard and three species of tigers:
Indian, Siberian and Sumatran tigers. It doesn’t stop at big cats, though. Come face to face with majestic African elephants, or encounter humongous bison (American and European), moody rhinos, and fearsome water buffalo.
In addition to mixing in with and meeting many species of lemur in the Walking With Lemurs enclosure, you can get up close to with gorillas, macaques, gibbons and baboons in some open-top enclosures. Children can tire themselves in one of several play areas while you take a well-earned rest. But even adults will like monkeying around in the Treetop Challenge, which features ladders, ropes, cargo nets and zip wires to test those primate skills!
The whole family can recover at one of the restaurants and kiosks, or take it to the picnic area. For more information, visit the website of Howletts Wild Animal Park
