A walking safari set in 100 acres! Explore the sights and sounds of Africa and discover lions, giraffes, rhinos, cheetahs, cape hunting dogs and many more animals and birds from the African continent. Visit the "Plans of Africa" to see giraffe, antelope, zebra, rhino and ostrich roam freely together as they would in the wild. For the under 12's there is an amazing innovative indoor adventure play area aptly named 'The Wild Zone' Watch and listen to our daily feeding, seasonal Bird of Prey displays and climb aboard the safari roadtrain for a free 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. The park offers a great outdoor adventure play area, as well as restaurants, snack shacks, free car parking, disabled facilities and a gift shop where you can find presents and gifts for everyone including yourself.

You could stretch a whole day here, or enjoy a half day. The children loved the train ride. The animals are well cared for and the talks given are good. We all touched a snake! The Zulu dancers are excellent and involve the children too! The children are given a passport to collect stamps so they can collect a medal!... More

Grandchildren loved it. Zulu dancers very entertaining. Loved the baby Meerkats. Nothing that we disliked. Everybody enjoyed the train trip around the park. Soft play area great, gave the cults time to sit down with a welcome cup of coffee.

Animals looked so happy and contented, enclosures so clean. Facilities are really good, food was really good. We enjoyed our day, the tribal dance was the icing on the cake! I don't often write reviews but this park deserves it! PS Staff all lovely and friendly.

I visited here last year on holiday & was so impressed that I took my parents, sister & 10 yr old nephew while we were on holiday in Southwold this month.
