Port Lympne vs. Howletts?

Jump to last reply

Which one of the two do you recommend if we only had time for one? I know Howlett's is smaller 90 acres vs. 600 acres for Port Lympne. Which have you been and which in your opinion is the better of the two for viewing animals, pleasant surroundings, types of animals cared for etc.?

I read that Howlett's and Port Lympne just lost three elephants back in April--how sad. They are supposed to have a very large African elephant herd at Howlett's.

Which place has the larger gorilla population?

Does it make sense to pair Howlett's with a trip to Canterbury or possibly Port Lympne with Dover Castle? Or do the animal parks deserve full days for themselves?
