Howletts Wild Animal Park, Bekesbourne, England

A gorilla at Howletts Animal Park in Bekesbourne

Howletts Wild Animal Park is a must see attraction in Bekesbourne, England. From tigers and wolves to antelopes and black rhino, the species at Howletts are as diverse as they are captivating. You can marvel at the size of the giant African elephant or monkey around with a host of gorillas. Animal keepers are on hand throughout the park to answer your questions and give insight into the world of the animals at Howletts.

Of course the animals are the main attraction, but there is also plenty for humans to do at the park. Challenge your friends in the treetop adventure, and see who can make it all the way through the walking and climbing obstacle course. Adults can take a break in the shade while little ones jump and swing in the kids' play area. No wild animal park would be complete without lots of birds. Bring your binoculars and see if you can spot the native and wild bird species living among the tree lined trails. Howletts Wild Animal Park is geared toward the family and can easily keep you and your children busy for a full day. Tickets are available individually or in groups, online or at the park gate.

Great picture, I'm not much of a zoo enthusiast and always wonder about the amount of care these beautiful African creatures require. Must be tremendous...
