As far as value for money goes, you can’t do much better this this for a great family day out, for as well as getting up close and personal with some of the world’s best loved mammals, reptiles and birds there is always extra events going on…
September is Conservation Month at Africa Alive!, so if you head over between 1st and 30th of the month you’ll get to experience a variety of special events which focus on how ZSEA (Zoological Society of East Anglia) is working to support conservation projects around the world.
On 11th September there’s a chance to learn how you can produce some fantastic pictures of the interesting and varied animals at Africa Alive! This is the ideal opportunity for you as well as enjoying a wonderful day at the park. Tutoring will be by James Neale, a professional photographer who teaches photography classes locally.
The workshop runs for a full day with limited spaces up to 12 people only. The event includes:

- A 5 hour workshop to include getting the best from your camera
- How to improve your wildlife photography
- Practical sessions throughout the park with advice and support from James Neale
