Explore the sights and sounds of Africa!
At Africa Alive!, explore the sights and sounds of Africa and discover lions, giraffes, meerkats, hunting dogs and many more animals from the African continent.
The spectacular centerpiece of Africa Alive!, is the ‘Plains of Africa’, the perfect place to spot five species of African savannah animals, including their graceful giraffe and heavyweight rhinos. During the summer visitors to the park may like to take the opportunity to go on safari with their senior animal keeper for a personal guided tour around the plains where you will get up close to these magnificent creatures, a truly unforgettable experience.
Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the magnificent lions from the viewing point ‘Lookout Lodge’ and visit ‘Lemur Encounters’, which offers you the chance to get right in with the action – as you walk-through the lemur’s enclosure! The park is also home to some other amazing primates including bushbabies, Colobus monkeys, drills and their new residents; the rare golden-bellied mangabeys.
The park is set in 100 acres of stunning Suffolk countryside and also offers the chance to spot a wide range of British wildlife. Bird lovers can enjoy spotting native nature from the new ‘Wader’s Lake’ boardwalk or see some African feathered friends along the Woodland Walk!
Discover some amazing facts about the animals during the exciting feeding talks and climb aboard the free ‘Safari Road Train’ for an entertaining journey around the park. Look, learn and play in the fun-packed ‘Discovery Center’ and meet some of their smaller residents at the animal encounter sessions. There is also a mini golf and young explorer’s challenge.
The park offers a great outdoor adventure play area along with an interactive indoor play area ‘The Wild Zone’ for the under 12s, as well as restaurants, free car parking, disabled facilities and a gift shop, where you can find presents and gifts for everyone.
