By Angela Cole

How would your little ones fancy trying a Creepy Carnivore tour with some wolves for half term?

This month Port Lympne Reserve near Hythe is holding the tour of the wolf enclosure along with baboon talks, gorilla talks and a dinosaur trail of Dinosaur Forest for the half term holidays.

The spine-tingling activities running from Saturday, October 21 to Sunday, October 29 include an eerie enrichment workshop, treat-making for the animals and, for Halloween, pumpkin carving sessions too.

Whilst in carnivore territory, there are cheetah cubs and other ferocious felines to meet.
During the visit jump on board a safari truck and journey through the Asian and African Experiences, and see the spectacled bears, giraffe and the new Bactrian camels.
