The Port Lympne Safari experience & animal reserve

Craig shares his experience of his stay at the Port Lympne animal reserve and safari experience

Every now  then I am surprised by an experience. I had absolutely no idea that just two train stops from Stratford and I could be hand feeding a Giraffe, monkeys and a Rhino. The Port Lympne animal reserve and safari experience is home to 760 animals across 90 species, including giraffes, monkeys, bears, lions and tigers. Not only that but you can stay in lodges with the animals!

Where to Stay at Port Lympne

For our two day experience we stayed at Port Lympne Mansion. This stunning grade II listed building was built in 1913 for Sir Phillip Sassoon. Like many large country homes it became abandoned after the second world war, before being bought in 1973 by John Aspinall who spent 10 years restoring the mansion. Aspinall was an interesting character known also for his gambling and links to the ‘disappearance’ of Lord Lucan, whom it is said he met with many years after he went missing. View Post

When Sony said “Hey Craig, come and join us on Safari” I wasn’t quite sure of the concept, but once I understood that we were going to experience the sounds of the jungle on the new premium HT-ZF9 soundbar with Dolby Atmos through Sony’s Virtual technology, I totally got it! With a private screening of the latest Jumanji movie planned using the soundbar, I was super excited!

Our jungle experience with 3D effect sound thanks to the new Sony soundbar

Who knew that a short train ride from London can transport you to the African planes, surrounded by endangers species from lions to Giraffe, tigers, buffalo and monkeys to name but a few.

The Port Lympne animal reserve and safari park was the setting for our ‘jungle’ experience with Sony, and I’ll cover our stay at Port Lympne in an upcoming post.

Checked in, showered and dinner consumed, we refilled our glasses and made our way across the hall to watch our movie using the Sony HT-ZF9 soundbar.

How the new Sony sound bar can look in your home. Small and discrete, but super punchy

The soundbar has Dolby Atmos through Sony’s Virtual technology which brings a new level of inspirational, cinematic audio to your home. With the new Vertical Surround Engine from Sony, you can enjoy virtual three-dimensional surround sound that takes your breath away – without the need for ceiling or up-firing speakers.

The perfect Sony set up for incredible cinematic sound that fills the room

With Dolby Atmos and DTS:X™ support, the HT-ZF9 soundbar is capable of totally immersing the audience on your sofa in sound from all around.

The Vertical Surround Engine in the HT-ZF9 soundbar can really produce a sense of helicopters whizzing above. Combining that with S-Force Pro Front Surround technology which improves the front surround sound field, means you may find it hard to believe this sound comes out of a 3.1ch soundbar. Additionally, even without Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content you can enjoy virtual three-dimensional sound due to ”Vertical S.” button on remote, that can up-mix even 2ch stereo content up to 7.1.2ch and thereby create height.

For our experience we also had a pair of SA-Z9R rear speakers, which are exclusively designed to partner with the HT-ZF9, which enhanced the experience with a true surround sound speaker configuration, filling the room with three dimensional sound. Movies at home will never be the same!
