Located just south of Lowestoft in Kessingland, Africa Alive is home to animals of the African savannah; lions, rhinos, giraffes, meerkats and many more! There’s plenty to see and do, the park is spread across 100 acres and you have ample opportunity to get up close to many of the park’s residents including lemurs, aardvarks, and new for 2019, the ‘feed a giraffe’ experience! Children will love taking a ride on the safari train, plus there’s an outdoor play area and indoor soft play area for them to explore.
Families with young children will also love a day at Easton Farm Park. Here they can experience life on a working farm and meet many of the furry inhabitants including bunnies, chicks, goats, donkeys, cows and pigs. Take a trip around the farm on the barrel bugs, train or tractor, ride a pony and visit the play area complete with zip wire, sandpit and bouncy cushion.
Older children and teenagers will love a round or two of crazy golf at the Congo Rapids at Ufford Park Golf, Hotel & Spa; the 18-hole adventure golf course challenges you to pass through an abandoned temple, ride of the raft into the Lost World where you will find life-size dinosaurs, tackle an erupting volcano and giant dinosaur claw, before you head into the Congo jungle.
When the weather is hot, cool down and have fun at Beccles Lido. The traditional outdoor pool is situated on the banks of the River Waveney and includes a splash pool for babies and toddlers, a children’s pool, and the main large pool with slide. The giant inflatable makes an appearance most days and there’s a café on site serving reasonably priced meals, snack, drinks and ice creams.
