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.

Just came back from this sanctuary , and the devotion and knowledge of these caretakers is evident. They rescue animals and take excellent care of them, I especially like the quirky names given to the animals, and how they are familiar with their personalities. Would definitely return.

We could tell that she was very passionate and cared a great deal about... More

Our hosts Roxy and her team of dedicated staff made our visit to Wild is Life, Grand Zimbabwe very special. Moyo is just the cutest baby ellie ever; Pickles the warthog was too adorable and of course Sweetpea the Kudu was so precious. The whole sanctuary is beautifully laid out with giraffe, wildebeest, baboons and lions, and more, and it... More

In January 2011, my wife, daughter, and I visited Wildlife is Grand in Harare. We were SO SHOCKED at what a fantastic place this is and how easy it was to mingle with all the special wildlife. Thank you.

I visited Wild is Life again this year with family from Harare and my son with his Australian girlfriend. We had a wonderful afternoon - Angela was a hospitable and knowledgeable guide and the interaction with the animals is an experience you really won't get anywhere else. Where else can you spend an afternoon stroking a cheetah, feeding giraffe and... More

I had the best day there, the owners and staff are so nice and passionate about what they do. They showed us around the property in due time. It wasn't an exhausting walk, and you get to meet other nice people from the group. It is very safe so you can bring your kids. Group sizes are perfect for both... More
