Had an amazing day here with my friend and our children. Entry fee was overpriced but as the weather held out we had a great day and there was lots to see. Children thoroughly enjoyed their day too.

Fantastic day out as usual. We visit Africa Alive at least twice a year. There are always new things to see. The animals seem content and the staff are very helpful. Lunch in the zoo cafe was reaonably priced and enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit

Went to Africa Alive as a couple. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Spent 4hours leisurely walking the park, animals were fantastic and very easy to see. Park nice and clean, food lovely and reasonable. All staff very helpful and informative. Feeding talks a highlight, especially the lions! Overall would definately recommended for families or couples alike.
