Livingstone Lodge

For a truly unique overnight experience, you should head to Port Lympne Reserve.

This 600 acre reserve in the heart of Kent offers the UK’s only authentic overnight safari experience, where guests enjoy a magical night under the stars and free entry to both Port Lympne Reserve and Howletts Wild Animal Park.

The multi award-winning Livingstone Lodge combines a luxury overnight stay, authentic African fine dining and a VIP guided safari.

The luxury tented accommodation includes private balconies, provides guests with an uninterrupted view across 100 acres of Kentish savannah where zebra, black rhino, wildebeest, giraffe, ostrich and many more species roam free.  Dinner is a five course African meal cooked on a fire pit in the spacious and comfortable laapa (meeting house). Guests can enjoy a cooked breakfast the following morning while watching the animals feeding at the watering hole.

Want to bring the whole family glamping? Also within Port Lympne Reserve, Bear Lodge offers a luxury camping experience for larger groups, with ten tents above the elefant and cheetah paddocks. The reserve also has a cottage to rent and the luxurious Mansion Hotel
