Howletts Wild Animal Park, Canterbury Reviews
Amazing zoo. Some beautiful places for a picnic plus of course some great animals to see. You can get close to the animals. The snack shops always seem closed though. Annual membership is great value for money. A daily pass is a little over priced. Toilets on site. Free parking (no one ever puts this but is a very important point!) Easy access for disabled or push chairs. Friendly staff - offer talks at certain times of the day. Open and invasive zoo. Never too busy.
I feel that the ideals behind this park are bang on for the modern wildlife conservation collection. When creating a space to keep an animal in captivity, how much is enough space? I believe that the answer is more about how enriched is that space. At Howletts the enclosures are designed to benefit the individual animals and the practicalities of their management and not to make sure the visitors see the animals like walking through an A to Z library collection. I think the balance is good and their conservation record speaks for itself. I would highly recommend a visit.
My fiance and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit today. We saw lots of beautiful animals and although many remained out of sight or at a distance, we captured some incredible photo's. Our only gripe ~ we went into one of the gift shops whist walking round the park and saw some pieces of jewellery, but we didn't purchase it as we assumed the same pieces would be in the main shop at the entrance/exit. Unfortunately, they weren't available and we were both rather disappointed. Would it not be possible to have the earrings and necklaces for sale in the main shop?
Excellent day out. Great deal getting kids in for £1 (with 2 adults) throughout Maywith email voucher. Such a lot to see and all set out really nicely. Plenty of refreshment places to refuel and lovely picnic areas. Plenty of clean restrooms and loads of bins around the park also, i did not see any litter The animals all look happy and are very well cared for. Really friendly helpful staff. Ample parking
Lovely zoo. Plenty to see. Plenty of parking. Kids play area so they can let off steam half way round with eating areas. New dinosaur models this year between the animal enclosures to give a bit of variety. Good family day out.
