As we’re reaching the end of another unpredictable year where many of us have still been separated from loved ones, some get-togethers have been on hold and travel curtailed there is an even greater desire to mark this festive season with something extra special. Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve offers an escape to a luxurious Christmas retreat, providing a uniquely indulgent experience and an opportunity to reconnect in the heart of the Kent countryside surrounded by over 800 rare and endangered animals.

Offering a fabulous seasonal stay to remember, Port Lympne does Christmas your way, with a bespoke festive package tailored to guests’ own specifications. The Hotel & Reserve’s dedicated team discuss your family traditions and put together the perfect festive get-together designed just for you and your loved ones.

Upon arrival on Christmas Eve, guests are greeted by Port Lympne’s jovial elves before embarking upon a Christmas-themed safari tour to explore the remarkable Kentish savannah and its unusual wildlife, including giraffes, zebras, ostriches and wildebeest. As the evening arrives, indulge in a wonderful three-course dinner in the elegant Garden Room Restaurant, before a VIP from the North Pole makes an appearance!

Port Lympne boasts a range of singular luxury accommodation options across its stunning 600-acre parkland, each with its own distinct charm. Guests can choose from a panoramic bubble pod: a winter wonderland sleeping under the stars in your very own immersive snow globe, or the Treehouse Hotel nestled high above the frosted woodland canopy with glass-fronted suites overlooking the stunning grounds and animals. Experience a traditional Christmas in one of six themed rooms within the luxury 4* Port Lympne Hotel, or stay in a lavish wigwam offering a sweeping wintry vista towards the Kent coast with exclusive views of stunning Amur leopards. Guests can enjoy their stay knowing that they are directly helping the international conservation work of the park’s partner charity, The Aspinall Foundation, the UK based charity devoted to the conservation of endangered species and returning them to wild protected areas.

With a sumptuous traditional four-course lunch on the big day, personalised animal experiences, family games in the homely glow of a log fire and your own personal buggy to explore the vast, abundant wildlife park, the Port Lympne team will ensure you have a truly magical Christmas from the very moment you arrive.
