We visited Wild is Life this past Friday and had the most amazing afternoon. Genuine orphans that are looked after by the most caring and passionate people. In current Zimbabwean times, when our wildlife is being treated like commodities, it renewed our faith. I have spent many years in the bush but I learnt so much that afternoon. The food... More

Great place were you can get very close to animals that otherwise you wouldn't be able to. Although it's not like a national park, the animals look happy and they don't look enclosed. The staff there seems to genuinely love the animals. This place is doing a great job of saving animals that would otherwise be dead.

Absolutely fantastic place, especially if you've got children that love animals but are too small to go on game drives. We saw lions and cheetahs, fed giraffes, played with a baby elephant, patted a pangolin and warthog. It was probably the best three hours in our toddler's life so far. Even us adults greatly appreciated this awesome experience.

Where else could you have the chance to hug a baby elephant and pet a cheetah while having the most glorious tea and cakes? All this and feeding giraffes is followed by "sundowners" of delicious appetizers and champagne. The staff makes you feel so welcome and you learn so much while touring this beautiful park. It is a must visit!

From the proximity to the animals, to the tasty and classy food and drink, and the fabulously friendly and knowledgeable staff, Wild is Life is one of the greatest wildlife experiences imaginable. A must visit.

Fantastic wild animals, including lions up close, various antelope milling about, cheetah, pangolin. Brilliant high tea, cocktails as the sun went down. Perfect.

The perfect way to meet giraffes, a baby elephant, lions, cheetahs, wildebeests and the rarest animal in Africa, the pangolin. Angela and Adam are very intelligent, informative and charming. The setting is glorious; the hospitality - tea and cakes, champagne and canapes - is matchless. Go: you won't be disappointed.

What a truly unique, amazing experience and only 20 minutes drive away. The work the sanctuary team does to look after the rescued animals is so admirable and the selflessness of each keeper and manager is unrivalled. The enclosures are well designed and large and all the animals are extremely healthy and content. The personal service and the high tea... More

All the other reviews perfectly sum up what a wonderful experience this is. Even though I lived in Zimbabwe for 23 years and been to many safari lodges, wildlife experiences and sanctuaries, nothing compares to Wild Is Life. The welcoming and knowledgeable staff, the close proximity to Harare, the delicious cakes and snacks, and the delightful animals (especially Baby Moyo... More

The family that runs it has a passion for the preservation of wild life, they have rare animals being looked after very well, e.g. the ant eater that they have. The food range is very good and the views sitting on the wooden platform are very nice. If you don't notice the giraffes may actually come and munch from your... More
