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.

Native Species

Africa Alive! has held an annual Bioblitz in the park since 2014. Wildlife experts from all over the county joined our staff and guests to help record the wonderful array of British wildlife that calls the park home. The total number of different species recorded at these events now totals 823; including over 350 species of insect, over 70 species of fungi, 14 species of mammal, over 160 species of plants and over 50 species of birds. This information is submitted to the Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service to assist national records, but also helps us to protect native species within the park.

We would like to thank all of the local wildlife organisations that have supported our events; including the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service, Suffolk Naturalists’ Society and their county recorders, Norfolk & Norwich Naturalists’ Society and their county recorders, the Lowestoft Field Club and the RSPB.

We would also like to thank all of our guests who took part in our bioblitz events. Keep an eye out on our events calendar for new native species events coming up this year!
