UK days out – Howletts Wild Animal Park

Get up close to some of the world's most endangered species at Howletts Wild Animal Park


Holly, 24, and Tom Briggs, 29, took daughter Isabella, 3, to Howletts Wild Animal Park

“Isabella loves animals so Howletts Wild Animal Park was the perfect way to spend our Saturday. The park is huge and home to some of the world’s most endangered species. We loved the tigers, leopards, monkeys and elephants and the rare black rhinos. Isabella also saw all the new babies born this year and laughed at the young gorillas playing on the slides and the tiny baby monkeys getting up to mischief.
We took a picnic, but didn’t need it as there are snack kiosks scattered around and a restaurant. We all enjoyed the ‘Walking with Lemurs’ section, where we got close to the resident family of lemurs. Isabella loved the park and keeps asking when she can go back!”
