Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve announces the opening of Leopard Creek

Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve
is now taking bookings for its latest luxury accommodation: Leopard Creek, which will officially welcome guests from 1st April 2021. This is the 14th accommodation to be unveiled at the award-winning, 600-acre Kent reserve.

Leopard Creek will be nestled within a tranquil corner of the reserve, surrounded by landscaped gardens with sweeping views across the Kentish savannah and out to sea. Guests will be able to enjoy 24-hour viewing of their neighbours; a pair of critically endangered Amur leopards and two white rhinos.


Leopard Creek offers a unique experience in stunning accommodation, suitable for all seasons and occasions. There are three choices of accommodation on offer: two romantic cosy cub huts for couples only, three stylish larger cabins, suitable for two adults and two children under 12, or two luxurious four-person wigwams, with prices starting from just £319 per night.

Perfect for a family break, a romantic retreat or a fun weekend with friends, Leopard Creek is the ultimate UK getaway, not only for its unmissable views and incredible neighbours, but for the various activities, fun and relaxation on offer.  Guests have the option to book private ranger guided safaris or once in a lifetime animal encounters throughout their stay.


The centrepiece of Leopard Creek will be two dramatic 7m tall wigwams. These lavishly appointed structures will accommodate up to two adults and two children, prices start from £699 a night. Designed by Victoria Aspinall, who is creatively responsible for the sought-after Lion and Tiger Lodges which are sold out until 2021, Leopard Creek will join a roster of spectacular accommodation available at the reserve.

Tony Kelly, Managing Director at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve commented “Following the delay caused by the pandemic restrictions we are delighted to announce that we have recommenced the build and leopard creek will now be open from the 1st April 2021.

The design has been carefully considered to offer high end furnishings in a stunning setting. Port Lympne delivers extraordinary experiences and we believe that Leopard Creek will not fall short of this promise.”

What’s more, all profits from overnight stays go directly back into the conservation work of The Aspinall Foundation, meaning guests can enjoy their stay knowing that their stay means more, and they are positively impacting the lives of these beautiful animals.

This announcement comes shortly after Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve received planning permission for Giraffe Hall which already has 18,500 on the waiting list.
