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

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 !

This place deserves the number one ranking for Harare attractions. It is very special indeed. The environment is beautiful - an expansive lawn with mature trees surrounded by the wide grassland. You will most likely be greeted by Pickles the extremely tame warthog, who does not appreciate personal space, or by Sophie the wee terrier. You are free to wander... More
