Why the kids will love it : If your children want to see their favourite wild animals, then head to the Kent-based park for the safari experience, where it is even possible to feed giraffes from the safety of a jeep. The Aspinall Foundation has been working in wildlife conservation for more than thirty years. From breeding rare and endangered animals within its UK-based wildlife parks to habitat preservation around the world, its mission is impressive. Port Lympne has a range of elegant overnight options – from glamping to Tiger Lodge – which allow you late access to the animals in a beautiful Kentish setting; all proceeds go right back into conservation, so it’s an ethical option for a minibreak.
Perfect for: All ages.
