Attraction Information

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 is the “Plains of Africa” - a perfect place to spot 5 species of African savannah animals, including graceful giraffe and heavyweight rhinos. During the summer months, there is even the chance to get up close to these magnificent creatures on the “Plains of Africa” 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 in with the action as you walk right through the lemurs' enclosure! The park is also home some other amazing primates including bushbabies and colobus monkeys.

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 the new “Wader's Lake” boardwalk or see some African feathered friends on the Woodland Walk!

Discover some amazing facts about the animals during 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 the fun-packed “Discovery Centre” and meet some of the smaller residents at the animal encounter sessions.
