Spent about four hours there today which was long enough to be honest. Spent nearly £3 on the world's worst coffee and was alarmed by the entrance fee: £18 for an adult. Wheelchair access is rubbish, staff were sullen (particularly in the lemur enclosure) and the wait for the train round the park was loooonnnngggg. Why is there only one?!... More

We went here last week and I can't believe we hadn't been before. You will easily spend a whole day here which makes the entry fee good value for money (we used vouchers which made it even better). Loads of animals to see and quite a lot of interaction too which impressed us. Not many kids will see they held... More

if you can get a 3 for 2 voucher all the better but well worth the money even if you pay full. The kids get to use a stamp collection card and receive a medal at the end. Fantastic

This is a good day out for all the family in beautiful grounds that are clean and well kept. The animals have plenty of space and so do the people! It is a bit expensive (I use my Tesco vouchers for this) but still extremely good value. There are good eating facilities, and also plenty of picnic places. The staff... More

We had visited Africa Alive when my son was 5years old . He has since been back with school trips so we decided we would revisit as a family. Obviously the price had gone up.... expected ... And we did have a voucher ...child free a saving of about £12-50... but it did still cost over £35-for the two of... More
