If you have friends who have not seen Africa before, if you feel like spoiling yourself and your family, while seeing wildlife and having posh tea in a rather exclusive, this is the place for you. Very close to Harare Airport, the perfect day for visiting delegations and businesspeople.

Very, very nice experience, although a bit expensive in my view, especially if your party is several people. Almost in town. You can see many animals & touch some of them. Everybody was very nice & forthcoming.

This family who are active farmers, conservationists and leaders in the animal sancutaries in Zimbabwe are dedicated to the animals they care for while teaching their visitors the unique personalities and care that goes into running a sanctuary. Seeing the animals up... More

We visited Wild is Life on our last day in Harare and it was a great way to finish off our stay. It was a beautiful setting to see all the hard work put into looking after the animals they had there and Angela and Alex were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was evident that they truly have a passion... More

I regret not writing this review promptly. My apologies to Angela, Guide and Manager of refuge. I visited in August of 2014. It was a very open and welcoming refuge. Did not get the feeling you get when you go to a public zoo with animals all caged up-like they are in a prison. It was nice being able to... More

Place is very good to see but price is too costly. Its very far from the town. They are charging $95 to see some animals. Not worth it

I would visit this place over and over. I loved being able to interact with the giraffe, wildebeest and warthog - but it was the pangolin I wanted to see most and the experience did not disappoint. Wildlife aside, the high tea and cocktails and canapes were outstanding (go hungry!) and the garden area beautifully decorated with lots of imaginative... More

Angela and team, thanks for the good work you are doing. We loved our entire evening at the sanctuary......the animals, the pangolin, Moyo and team, the lion feed too. And most of all, the dancing, the cake cutting, the high tea and canapes with bottomless drinks! Job well done

The price might seem a bit high, but honestly, it is definitely worthy. And in addition, you support a great place and its staff trying their best to help injured or orphaned animals.
