The park is home to 390 animals including Kent’s only giant anteaters and the UK’s largest herd of African elephants and is one of the county’s most-visited tourist attractions.

For families planning a trip during the summer, there will be new group tickets available for up to six people.

Previously, guests could only purchase individual tickets, costing up to £125 for five people, whereas the new group saver ticket will cost £80 for the same number of visitors.

The new offer will also apply during the school holidays when the park will introduce its Wild Summer event, celebrating six different species over the break.

There will be themed activities and a chance to get up close and personal with gorillas, elephants, carnivores, rhinos, lemurs and monkeys from Saturday, July 20.

You can book tickets, including the new group ticket bundles, here.

You can also buy tickets on the gate, however these are priced at a higher cost than tickets purchased in advance online.
