 Port Lympne Reserve in Kent, one of the UK’s most popular wild animal and short breaks destination, is adding to their highly acclaimed accommodation portfolio.


The latest addition offers an array of get away experiences rolled in to one. A unique opportunity to be at one with the sounds of safari for the wild at heart, nestled deep in the countryside for nature lovers and sleep under the stars for stargazers, all bubble wrapped in blissful luxury for those that enjoy the finer things in life. The striking transparent dome, ‘The Lookout Bubble’ offers a taste of all this within the tranquil sanctuary of Port Lympne Reserve.


Wake up to the sound of the neighbouring lions roaring from Europe’s largest lion enclosure located just a whisker away and by night, for the Astrology enthusiasts, spot the Leo constellation through the telescope on the Bubble’s own private stargazing terrace. After a day of exploring, watch the sun set over the Reserve whilst relaxing in the freestanding bath and prepare for a night gazing at the galaxy above your welcoming king-size bed.


The Lookout Bubble opens mid-August and includes a host of special touches. In addition to all the luxuries you’d expect from Port Lympne such as 24-hour concierge, use of a private golf buggy, VIP out of hours access to the whole Reserve to browse at leisure and seats on Port Lympne’s iconic truck safari, you will also enjoy an included breakfast in the stunning on-site Garden Room Restaurant, en-suite wet room, a sleep kit to ensure the perfect night’s sleep and, of course, a bubbly welcome drink.


You’ll need to be on the bubble as Port Lympne’s accommodation sells out fast, with breaks getting booked up months in advance - The price for a one-night stay in the Lookout Bubble ranges from £439 - £999.

For an immersive experience in the 600 acres of natural surroundings of Kent’s largest wild animal reserve visit for more information or to book the new ‘Lookout Bubble’.


Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is a breeding sanctuary for rare and endangered animals which aims, wherever possible, to send animals born there to protected areas of their natural habitat where they can live free. Port Lympne’s award-winning short breaks range from the luxurious Lion Lodge, where your neighbours are a stunning pair of lions, to rustic and affordable family glamping in Pinewood Pods. Visitors can enjoy their visit or stay, knowing that they are directly helping to support the animals which call Port Lympne home and the Reserve’s international conservation work in collaboration with The Aspinall Foundation.


The Aspinall Foundation (TAF) is a UK based charity devoted to the conservation of endangered species and returning them to wild protected areas. The organisation has an almost 40-year history of successful rescue and rewilding projects, with more than 1,000 animals rescued, rewilded or relocated to date.
