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 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

There is something very special about this place. The people are very friendly, their passion for wild life and animals in general is so communicative. The gardens, the animals, the atmosphere... I felt like Karen Blixen ! And the exquisite end of the day spent in the tented courtyard with all the animals around... magical !
