It is a lovely space, good amenities, lots for the children to do. Even places to shelter from the rain and boy did it rain.The Zoola Dancers were awesome, sadley the train broke down, but it is all walkable.

Rather than go away on holiday, we decided to stay local and have days out at local attractions. We are so glad we decided to go to Africa Alive.
A lovely clean and safe environment with lots of space, very well thought out (even the double toilets for parent & child - first time we'd seen these!).
We had a great day, our 16 month old daughter wondered about for most of the day, and thoroughly enjoyed the music and dancing by the Zulu Dancers, what a great addition to the day.
There is a great play area for slightly older children which was well maintained and fun.
We will definitely be going back and recommending to our friends.

We used Tesco vouchers towards the cost of entry, had it not have been for these it does seem an expensive day at nearly £18 per adult. Having said that we had a great day, loads of animals to see, very clean, lots of informative information given during the day by the handlers at feeding times etc. Really enjoyed the day, you need to go early to make the most of the whole park.

We went because we was camping next door, other than the price being out if this world, it was an amazing experience, live African act, very well set out, the animals was all very well look after. Its a must place to visit.

It's the second time we have visited here, the last time a couple of years ago. It is a great day out. Very clean and tidy. Animals well cared for and staff very helpful and friendly. Staff giving the animal talks were very knowledgable. We watched a birds of prey display which was entertaining and informative. The African dancers display was very good and involved the watching crowd. You can spend all day here and not get bored.

The only negative was the queue to get in. It took 20 minutes but it was worth it. Staff brought animals along the queue to keep people entertained. The site is large so at no point did it feel overcrowded.

Thought the £15 charge per person for a jeep safari ride was very expensive so we didn't do this but Overall a good day out.
