Fans of Countryfile and the Really Wild Show will be just as interested in Michaela Strachan as the animals at a Kent zoo this weekend.
Visitors at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, near Hythe, are in for a treat this Easter as the TV presenter hosts her own live show, called Really Wild Adventures, for the first time in this county.
The 48-year-old will be hosting her popular children’s show on Easter Monday. Inspired by her book, the interactive show is an entertaining journey into the world of animals for all the family, packed full of music, humour and fascinating wildlife facts. Michaela will also be holding a book signing after each one.
Port Lympne’s Carole Thomas said: “We are excited to welcome Michaela. Her fun and energetic show brings alive the animal kingdom as it’s never been seen before, and will be fantastic fun for families.”
Michaela is also known for presenting Orangutan Diaries, Elephant Diaries, Michaela’s Zoo Babies and The Great Penguin Rescue as well as the seasonal Springwatch programmes for the BBC.
Her live shows are part of Port Lympne’s Eggcellent Easter Family Fun that is running through the Easter holidays until Easter Monday.
The Really Wild Adventure Show will run throughout Easter Monday at 11am, 1.30pm and 3pm. Entry to the show is free with a valid day ticket, Port Lympne Passport or Gold Card. Places are limited so visitors should book for the shows on the day to avoid disappointment. Day tickets cost £23.95 for adults and £19.95 for children. Call 0844 8424647.

Meanwhile, at Port Lympne’s sister zoo, Howletts, they are holding a public party this Easter weekend. To celebrate 30 years of the Aspinall Foundation conservation charity, which manages both zoos, will host a weekend-long birthday party at Howletts, near Canterbury, featuring craft activities, animal talks and a scavenger hunt with prizes.
Day tickets cost £23.95 for adults and £19.95 for children. Call 0844 8424647.
