Port Lympne Reserve

Port Lympne Reserve is very different from a conventional zoo and we ensure that here the animals always come first.

We do our best to provide a fantastic visitor experience and we are constantly striving for new ways to ensure that we are one of Kent’s best days out, whilst not forgetting the primary reason we are here – to ensure the survival of endangered animals.

The Reserve is a breeding sanctuary for rare and endangered species. In the UK, we are the most successful breeders of clouded leopards and de brazza monkeys, and one of the most successful breeders of western lowland gorillas and fishing cats in the world. Wherever possible, we aim to return animals born at Port Lympne, to protected areas of their natural habitat.
