A small, but select group of keen photographers took themselves down to Port Lympne Wildlife Park last Saturday. Surprisingly ,they were all classed as advanced primates and given an ‘access all areas’ pass, reliant on good behaviour.

The crisp but dry weather was kind to us and we were able to explore the 600 acre reserve on foot and in a safari truck, which trundled and bumped along tracks resembling the depths of the maasai mara  or the Serengeti.

Gorillas were undoubtedly the stars of the show, but we also saw and photographed (with great difficulty in some cases), Rhinos, Tigers, Wolves, Zebras, Baboons, Ostriches, Giraffes and many more quite rare species which The conservation work at Port Lympne is successfully helping to preserve and increase for future generations.   

Spot the camera club members.
Thanks to our official photographer Andy Brett for the triptych (no one likes a smarty pants)
Unfortunately you will only be getting paid the £1,200 for one image and not £3,600 you were expecting for the three photos (ed)
