Our amazing Aldabra tortoise Experience allows you to get up close and personal with our lovable giant tortoises – some of the break out stars from out lockdown live tours here at Wingham Wildlife Park.

Our animal experiences give people the chance to spend time with some of our park’s most incredible animals – in this case, our Aldabra tortoises. As part of the tortoise Experience you will have access inside the animal enclosure for 15 minutes, where you can sit down and really chill out with some of our animals… There really is no more chilled out and relaxed experience at the park!

When you’re inside the enclosure, you’ll be introduced to our group of giant tortoises which weigh more than 80Kg each and will actually get to stroke them and interact with them while the keeper is available for any of your questions! This experience is all about taking things at a tortoise pace and just relaxing with these amazing animals, although they are so endearing that the time with them will just fly by! Not only is this a great way to see them up close to you, but you’ll enjoy an experience that you’re sure to never forget.

As part of your experience ticket you will receive day entry to Wingham Wildlife Park, a park that an incredible array of different animals call home. Once you’ve finished tickling a tortoise, you will be able to go exploring and see all of the other animals that we look after – including Parrots, Penguins, Monkeys, Clouded Leopards and more.

You can book our Tortoise Experience on any day of the week, with the choice of two time slots: either 11:00 am or 14:00pm.

The whole family went to watch my nan do the meerkat experience, what a brilliant day.  The staff were amazing and their knowledge of all the animals was great. Would tell anyone to go visit Wingham.

Meerkat Experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and booked for the Meerkat Experience, the price of which covers entry to the park, plus the Experience. We were taken in to their enclosure by a keeper and sat on low logs, a cloth placed over our knees and the keeper put live mealworms on it. The Meerkats then climb up and eat them. They have lovely soft fur and are utterly charming.

Meerkat Experience

I was lucky enough to have a meerkat experience brought for me by my two sons.  I would like to thank the keeper that took me on my meerkat experience. She knew everything you could want to know about meerkats . The meerkats jumped on my lap and were taking food from my hand they were so gentle. I will be back in the near future. Once again many thanks for such a wonderful experience.
