Whether your event requires conference facilities, team building activities, product launches or simply an evening of outstanding entertainment, Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is the perfect venue for an unforgettable occasion.
Why Port Lympne?
Set in 600 acres of stunning parkland, Port Lympne is an ideal choice to add some adventure to your away days, parties and corporate events and reconnect with nature in the centre of this award-winning wildlife reserve. Devoted to the conservation of endangered species and returning them to wild protected areas, Port Lympne is home to hundreds of animals, giving you the chance to truly reconnect with nature in picturesque and restorative surroundings.
The Reserve offers a variety of beautiful locations onsite, ideal for motivating, inspiring and rewarding your colleagues. Choose from meeting rooms in the Grade II listed Mansion Hotel and take in the stunning hand-painted murals, or the newly appointed glass orangery with fully incorporated kitchen and adjoining lawns. All set amongst stunning landscaped gardens, you’ll have unrivalled 30 mile views and first rate conference facilities.
By holding your event with Port Lympne, you are directly helping the park to protect wildlife here in the UK which, in turn, enables the park’s partner conservation charity, The Aspinall Foundation, to send animals back to the wild and manage animal protection schemes in Congo, Gabon, Java and Madagascar.
Encircling the historic mansion hotel, the reserve’s 14 acres of tranquil, landscaped, Italian-style gardens allow you to enhance your event with outdoor activities, backed by breathtaking coastal views across to France.
Create a bespoke team building event with our experts and you could find yourselves creating enclosure furniture or enrichment items for the animals, as you put into practice some valuable techniques, designed to make your teams work effectively together.
Whether you create puzzle feeders for gorillas, platforms for tigers, dig boxes for meerkats or climbing apparatus for monkeys, the rewarding feeling of seeing your finished items put to the test in one of the animal enclosures is one to cherish. Your team will reap the benefits of giving back, learning new skills with a renewed sense of engagement and wellbeing.
Further enrich your event with a journey by truck through the park’s vast Kentish savannah, seeing iconic animals such as giraffe, black rhino, wildebeest and zebra, or even plan a hands on encounter to meet some of the residents up close. Available as serious team building, competitive events or simple fun days, the park’s dedicated team will create a bespoke event tailored to meet your needs.
Where to stay
After your day at the reserve, extend your stay with one of Port Lympne’s award winning short breaks. These range from historic 4* boutique hotel stays, to a wild glamping experience with a touch of rustic charm. Stay within a whisker of the big cat enclosures and wake up to the sounds of nature with a Glamping Pinewood Pod, or upgrade to a touch of luxury in a Leopard Creek Wigwam with panoramic views! There’s a vast range of accommodation units to choose from, and something for everyone.
What’s more, you can enjoy your stay knowing that you are directly helping to protect wildlife, with profits from the parks and short breaks supporting the animal conservation charity work that takes place around the world.
