What a wonderful visit. The staff were top notch and we all had a VERY enjoyable time. They provided a nice tour, didn't rush the visitors and everyone had a good time. Being able to get close to the animals was a treat, it didn't feel like a petting zoo, which was my initial impression when reading reviews before going...no...no... More

We were welcomed this week to this amazing experience! We had an unforgettable afternoon with all the flavors of the passion for the animals! The lions showing off their roars, the cheetahs with their elegance, the baby elephant who stole my heart! The afternoon finished with delicious canapés whilst the sun set over the grounds of the Life is Ground.... More

a MUST for all who visit Harare - but make sure you book early on as they are so popular. A rare experience and so humbling.

Wild is Life is a well run rehab home for a variety of animals including lions, cheetah, giraffe, ostrich, a baby elephant and a Pangolin. I have never thought I'd see a Pangolin in the wild and have never seen them anywhere else but in photos so this was a great surprise! The Pangolin and her handler were so interesting... More

Angela was our guide and she was excellent. Her knowledge and concern for the rescued animals came across during the tour. She was even patient with the humans:) Make sure to see the pangolin and ask about the backpack. You'll be glad you did. Oh! How could I have forgotten? Please rub Pickles' tummy for me.

This was a highlight of or trip. You can tell how much the caretakers love and care for the animals they rehabilitate. The ground are gorgeous and the tea is fabulous. Delicious snacks! The animal interaction was amazing. The whole experience was full of exiting surprises. Wish we could've stay longer!

The mission of this place is truly great. Helping animals rehabilitate and return to the wild whenever possible and taking care of those that cannot. Perfect place for people nervous about the whole 'safari' experience. The pangolin alone makes a visit worth it - fascinating.
