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 centrepiece of Africa Alive, our “Plains of Africa”, is the perfect place to spot 5 species of African savannah animals, including our graceful giraffe and heavyweight rhinos. During the summer months there is even the chance to get up close to these magnificent creatures with our “Plains of Africa” experience!

Enjoy a bird's eye view of our magnificent lions from our viewing point ‘Lookout Lodge' and visit “Lemur Encounters”, which offers you the chance to get in with the action as you walk right through the lemurs' enclosure! The park is also home some other amazing primates including bushbabies, colobus monkeys, drill and our 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 also enjoy spotting native nature from our new “Wader's Lake” boardwalk or seeing some African feathered friends on our Woodland Walk!

Discover some amazing facts about our animals during our exciting feeding talks and seasonal ‘Bird of Prey' displays. Climb aboard the free Safari Roadtrain for an entertaining journey around the park. Look, learn and play in our fun-packed “Discovery Centre” and meet some of our smaller residents at the animal encounter sessions.

There are lots of themed events taking place this year including our sport-themed event ‘On your Marks, Get Set, Go!', as well as our ever popular ‘Africa by Night' charity fundraising evening event.

The park offers a great outdoor adventure play area, as well as restaurants, free car parking, disabled facilities and a gift shop, where you can find presents and gifts for everyone.
