Visit to Port Lympne on Wednesday 28th June 2017
We departed on time from Crayford at 09.30 with some 28 people on board. The two mini buses were driven by Guy and Gavin.
The weather was quite good, not too hot, just right for a day of walking and animal spotting. It took us just over one hour to drive there.
After sorting out the entrance tickets we boarded our Safari transport which took us around the grounds to see the animals in their natural environment. This took about 45 minutes and managed to see quite a few:
Giraffes, wolves, buffalos, antelopes of different kinds, one tiger (which unfortunately was lying down asleep!), the backside of one lion, lots of monkeys, one gorillas, hyenas, zebras, rhinos, meerkats etc…
The grounds are quite extensive and well maintained but set on quite a steep hill so lots of exercise!!
One part of it offered you beautiful views across the Marsh where you could see the sea and Dungeness Nuclear Power station.
After the Safari tour we had some lunch in the cafeteria and people had free time to walk around before returning to the mini buses for our journey back to Crayford at 15.45.
I think everyone would join me in saying that it was a very successful day out.
Thank you to the two drivers.
