We visited the Wild Life park in fall, and we were pleased but not overly impressed. Some of the great things about this place are the giraffes you can feed and the train that travels around the park. It is pretty much an average zoo, but the feeding of the giraffes makes it worth it to go. Plus, if you... More

We hit this on our way to MN..so, only rode the train @ the facility. I think it was really pricey to visit the zoo part; so we skipped that. Would like to see it though next visit. The feeding of the Giraffe's was AWESOME!! That was as fun as feeding sting ray's in Bermuda. I must say that topped... More

This place was sad, broken down, under constructions for some 5 years and still 10 yrs more to go. Like some big cats in enclosures. Train ride is waste of money. btw the park ticket came as complimentary with the Kalahari resort stay.

We recently visited this park when we were in Wisconsin. We were 3 adults, 2 teen agers, an 8 year old and a 4 four year old. Everyone of us agrees that it was a great time and an amazing experience. there were many animals that we have never seen in person before. The family that owns this place is... More

Waterpark what waterpark. I was really impressed with how they have made the change to an animal park. I did enjoy watching the black swans walk into a baby pool though. Great exhibits and you can get close to some animals and feed them. Watch out the camel will steal a hat off your head if you are not looking!!... More

It was a very nice park, until we crossed the bridge that lead to the Feline Building, Nursery, and other small exhibits. Lots of parrots were in small bird cages, an aardvark had barely any room to move around, there were WAY too many tortoises in one exhibit, it was SO, SO, SO over-priced, and not worth the $40 that...

Our family of 4 loved the wildlife park. They have many animals not found at other zoos we have been to. Easy /close viewing of animals. The nurseries were very fun. Kids were super excited touch the baby animals. Nice family owned business. Thank you to the gentleman who took the time to talk to us about the park and... More

We went there this weekend and after reading lots of negative reviews we were hesitant to pay $50 for the two of us to go, but my husband and I both thought it was well worth the money after we walked through the park. A lot of it was still under construction, but I cared more about seeing/feeding the animals... More

Went here off season. They still charge full price even though all of the animals ARE NOT OUT. We were told only a few were not out. But many of them were not out. It was sooo boring. Poor living conditions for what animals they did have. I sure hope in season that there are many more animals than this... More

We love animals and our three-year-old son is obsessed with trains so we had to try Timbavati Wildlife Park. We went the first week of October 2013 which was great because we didn’t have to battle large crowds. The lady at the admission desk told us the giraffes had already been moved for the season and I liked that she... More
