Africa Alive is home to a wide range of animals from across the continent, including lions, giraffes, cheetahs and rhinos.

Claudia Roberts, chief executive at the Zoological Society of East Anglia, said: "Friendship is important to so many of our species here at Africa Alive Zoological Reserve, from ostriches to black-cheeked lovebirds.

"By offering £10 tickets this weekend, we hope more people will be able to come and strengthen their relationships with loved ones, learn how similar animals can be to us, and support the vital conservation work we do for endangered species."
