Please note that we are waiting for more government guidelines to come out over the next few days as they continue to debate and vote on the matter in a few days. However, Boris Johnson made an announcement on 31st October 2020 which suggests that we will be going into a national lockdown again. If everything goes ahead as the government currently plans we will be implementing the following:
Wednesday 4th November will be the last day on which we are open during this month, with a currently projected re-opening date of 16th December, however, this date will be confirmed as it comes closer. Kent is in tier 3 of lock-down restrictions which means that indoor parts of zoos are not allowed to open. Our jungle contains a large proportion of our animals and we as such unable to open the park fully during these restrictions.
If you have an animal experience during this time we will issue you with a voucher to allow you to re-book your experience once we re-open.
If you have a day ticket purchased for a date during the shut down, you can log in to your online account and change your ticket for another day once we re-open. Please do this as soon as possible and in any case before your ticket is due to be used.
How can you help?
These are still desperate times for our park, but with your support we know that we can make it through.
We have had a number of people ask how they can help with the animals. The easiest way to help, and we understand that during this time which is very taxing for everyone is to make a donation to our operating fund. During this time of closure we are doing everything we can to ensure that our welfare levels remain as high as always.

Alternatively you can use our bank details to make a direct donation in to our account:

We appreciate all the support which is offered to us, and thank everyone for having patience with us during these testing times.
If you want to help but do not wish to send a financial donation during this difficult and uncertain time, as we have mentioned above we are trying to keep our supply levels as high as we can, and in case of shortages of certain products please do feel free to continue donating items as some of you do from time to time. We will always use vegetables (which are short in shops at present but perhaps you grow your own or have purchased too much), peanut butter, honey, nuts (lots of nuts) and other similar items.
