Access to the upper level of the Lion House

Due to essential maintenance to replace the ramp leading up to the gantry over-looking the lions, the ramp access will be closed from Monday 16th April until Friday 8th June 2018. Access is still available via the stairs however, due to these works, there is no access for wheelchairs, mobility scooters or pushchairs. The lions will still be visible at ground level from the perimeter fence. We apologise for any disappointment caused whilst this essential maintenance is completed.

Donation Requests

Raffle Prize & Donation Requests

The Zoological Society of East Anglia, incorporating Banham Zoo and Africa Alive!, is a registered conservation and education charity; therefore we have to carefully monitor the number of free entry tickets that are issued to other organisations for fundraising events that do not directly benefit the zoo or our charitable mission. As major visitor attractions situated in the beautiful counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, we want to support our local community as much as possible.

In order to manage the process of donating free tickets to other organisations the following criteria has been put in place:

  • Tickets will be issued to either organisations or other registered charities whose work clearly supports or relates to our own mission, to advance their roles in wildlife & environment conservation, animal welfare and education, or to schools and community groups in the NR and IP postcodes.
  • We will only donate tickets directly to organisations and charities rather than third parties, i.e. not to those holding events on behalf of other nominated charities or causes.
  • Only one pair of child tickets will be allocated to successful organisations in any twelve month period.

All applications will be considered using the above criteria by the last Friday of every month, successful applicants will be notified by post within the first week of the following month. Please note: We regret that are unable to reply to those who have not been successful.

Please complete our donation request online form.

We regret we are unable to accept requests by any other method.
