Howlett's Animal Park Route
Animals to see - Lots of elephants, Rhinos and Warthogs.
Description: Walk along a small footpath straight through the centre of Howlett's Animal Park!
Walk 1- Littlebourne
There is a small footpath that cuts through the zoo (fences on either side so you're safe from the animals!) and around the outside of a few enclosures.
The route is flat however has 2 blocks of steps/walkways so is unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. It is also very very narrow.
Taking photos of the animals is difficult as there's a number of fences and bushes in the way so this is certainly more of a seeing than a photographing walk.
Route Description (clockwise)
Park in the beautiful village of Littlebourne. Head south towards Little Stour and follow the Bridleway in a loop back towards Howletts.
When you get to Lackenden Cottages, carefully cross the road and you will find a fairly hidden footpath that cuts through Howletts (see pictures below). Follow the path through the zoo and then take a right at the end of the path. Follow that to the right and all the way round until it rejoins the road.
When you get to the road take a left and head straight until you see a footpath that will take you back into Littlebourne. Be careful on this road as the will be fats moving cars.
Full Ring Route - 4.1km
