Damian Lewis, star of hit Channel 4 TV series, Homeland – takes his family to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, near Hythe.

The Aspinall Foundation’s Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent received a special visit from star of hit Channel 4 TV series – Homeland. Damian Lewis popped in to the park with his family whilst on a break from hectic filming schedules.

During the VIP visit Damian and family enjoyed behind the scenes experiences at Port Lympne and met the Amur tiger family, took a VIP safari to see black rhino, giraffe, wildebeest, ostrich and more on The African Experience – 100 acres of Kentish savannah and fed the family of western lowland gorillas set to be released to a protected area in their native Africa.

Damian said: ‘This was a welcome break from my hectic filming schedule and it was great to just relax and spend time with my family. All of us really enjoyed getting close to the animals and seeing the conservation work of The Aspinall Foundation in action.’

The Aspinall Foundation is a world leading conservation charity, headed by passionate conservationist, Damian Aspinall. The Foundation hit the headlines recently when it announced plans to send captive born animals back to the wild.
