Africa Alive is a African Themed Zoo with many African Animals including Giraffes, Rhino, Lemurs (many different types), Lions, Cheetahs, Owls, Zebra and many more.
Africa Alive is based in Kessingland, Suffolk not far from lowestoft and about a 30min drive from Great Yarmouth.
The Entrance prices arent partically expensive when compared to other Zoo's at a £11.95 for adults and £7.95 for children.
Africa Alive is also part of the Big Three which includes another two parks in the Norfolk/Suffolk area including Banham Zoo and The Dinosaur park. Buy a seasonal ticket and you can visit all three.
As well as being open to the public they also offer a volunteer scheme as well as feeding talks during most of the day. Being a volunteer is fun as you will learn what it is like to be a keeper as well as meeting most of the animals in the park. I volunteered myself and i enjoyed every part of it.
As well as having indoor and outdoor children play areas, they also have a train that travels around the park giving you the complete tour of the park and telling you about the animals in the pens that you will pass. Also a little farm yard area in which you can enter and meet the animals wondering around inside.
Another highlight of the park is the lemur walkthrough, where lemurs are inside running about and you can walk in with them. (Just becareful they will bite)
The whole area is wheelchair accessiable, easy to walk round and has easy to view pens and cages so everyone will have no trouble with seeing their favourite animals.
Also the cages and pens are big enough for the animals and i assure you all the animals are kept very well.
Overall i would say this is great for a visit and great for the family, worth every penny.
If you in the area drop me a visit ;)
Africa Alive is in Suffolk we went here while on holiday to Pontins in Pakefield, it was just a short car drive from there.
The price is £11.95 pre adult and £7.95 for 3 to 15 year olds.
They have a small farm with goat's rabbits and guinea pigs
They also have zoo animals like zebra, giraffes and lions, all the animals have a lot of room to roam around.
We spent ages looking for the white rhino did you know they are not white they are grey.
They also have loads of different birds; they were doing different displays throughout the day.
There was a little train you could use to take you around the park, we didn't use this, it was a lovely day and we enjoyed the walk. There wasn't that many people so it didn't feel at all crowded.
They was doing tours around the park in a jeep they would take you into some of the animals so you could get close, you could even feed a giraffe, we thought this would be great until we saw it would cost a extra nine pounds each for just thirty minutes .
The café had sandwiches, pasta pots, chips and drinks the prices weren't too bad.
They have an indoor and an outdoor play area for children.
We had a great time and I probley would go back again.
An African animal adventure.
