No option to pay with debit or credit card so offered a discount on entry price. Didn't realise it was for a few hours visit, had envisaged spending most of the day there. However, had a brilliant time. Guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic. Brilliant close encounters with some animals and enjoyed a tasty afternoon tea. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and animals...

Animal sanctuary like no other. I believe that Moyo (the elephant) and his friends are in the best possible care at Wild Is Life Animal Sanctuary. Thank you to all the workers for their superb hospitality.

Everything one would hope for in an African animal rescue. The animals are well cared for and the staff are an amazing group.

It's hard to tell what this place is from the pictures/description on here. At first I thought it was a zoo, it's actually an animal sanctuary. Check out the website and you will be sold because you'll realize this is a once in a lifetime experience. Yes, it is pricey, but it goes to a good cause and you'll have... More

One cannot question the committment to saving and being part of rehabilitation of abused wild animals. The environment fot visitors is stunning. A unique setting on a working farm. Well worth a visit. It beats The Walk with Lions and Elephant rides. Here one comes away with knowledge of what wildlife goes through to landup in sanctuaries such as this.

We came to Wild is Life on the recommendation of our Harare hosts and also the Trip Advisor site. As we're on a budget during a 6 month round the world trip the price initially looked a little more than we could manage - but then we read the reviews and thought - it's a once in a lifetime trip...

I am Zimbabwean but currently live in the UK. I have recently been back in Zim on holiday and to see my family. I had also planned and arranged to get engaged in Zimbabwe and Wild Is Life was an amazing place to do it. With great hospitality and a true insight into real Africa, I made the right choice....

Despite the excellent reviews of this place, I wasn't sure I would get the animal experience I was looking for. I was so wrong. This place gave me, quote possibly, one of the best days of my life. The interaction with the animals was a million times more than I wanted and expected. The team of people here are some... More

I was originally meant to go to WIld is Life on the Saturday morning, but I was contacted by Angela in the morning informing me that the other party had cancelled. She asked me to come to the afternoon session, and I'm so glad I did. Granted it was my first time to Africa, but this experience is something I... More
