The first impression was very good as we got into the park straight away with no queuing, at first the price seemed quite high but it proved to be well worth it (also it is going... More

We arrived early. Our table had been reserved for us so we did not have to wait to be seated. The food was of excellent quality and everyone's order had been cooked to their specification

the train going round (in season only), the animals, the coffee shop and the gifts. The location is great and very near many of the main caravan camping and holiday resorts.

We enjoyed our visit to this zoo. There were several species that we had not seen before. The animals seemed to have reasonable space and the staff we saw were very good. Only real drawback of the place was the entry fee. Not complaining about the basic cost but if you agreed to sign up for Gift Aid they charge... More

Super day out with the kids at Africa Alive. Had a fabulous time, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The animals had plenty of space in their enclosures which were well spaced out and designed so that you could observe the animals easily and close up. The park was not too steep and although parts were a little muddy you... More

Great zoo. It would be quite expensive but we used Tesco vouchers so paid next to nothing! Most of the big animals are there (except elephants) and all animals seemed happy, healthy and well looked after. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the talks were interesting and informative. The kids got to handle some snakes which they loved! Well... More
