The place was not finished, you can tell they have a lot of work to do. Still signs from previous waterpark at location. Expensive to get it and then they want $4 for a small cup of carrots which you can feed the animals. Some of the cages I felt were too small. Neat you can get so close to... More

We had a lot of fun at Timbavati, but honestly the negative costs outweigh the pleasant experience. There was a charge to feed the animals, ride the camel, ride the train, and anything else extra. Your admission get you in the park and you can view the whole park in an hour. We loved the park but will not go... More

Our tickets to Timbavati were included in our hotel stay, so most of my review is based on the fact that we didn't pay for admission. *In the off season, they are very light on animals. Lots of empty cages etc. We live in Illinois and noticed, around Halloween, that Timbavati trucks were present at our local Pumpkin patches. Looks... More

We had a free pass from Kalahari to visit the park and unfortunately we only had about an hour to visit. It was very well maintained and the animals appeared healthy and well cared for. The cages were clean and spacious. We went with our 3 little grandsons who thought it was great. We didn't have time to ride the... More

I have never been so close to a lion in my life. I even got head butted by a camel because he did not want me in the picture with him and my husband. The train ride around the park is well worth the 10 dollars. They give a bit of history of the town and education about the animals.... More

We had a great time here. The animals were amazing to see close up. Had a great time feeding different types of animals. They have carrots you can buy by the cupful. The animals know too and some will follow you waiting for you to give them pieces. The big cats are so beautiful. Well worth price of admission.

We visited Timbavati with free tickets, and I had very low expectations. However, we will be back and will willingly pay the admission. It's basically a zoo with a twist - much more hands on and up close with the animals. My 4 year old and 6 year old were enthralled. It's clear that Timbavati is new, but they're off... More

While this park is still a work in progress it is definitely worth the stop. We loved being able to pet and feed the animals. The work they have done in a few short years is great.

We visited Timbavati in the middle of the week in September, so our experience might be atypical, but we had a great time! While it is pricey ($18.95/person), we were there on a day when the main admission included a ride on the train. (Otherwise, there are coupons all over the Dells for $2 off per person; not a huge...

I visited "The Dells" as a kid more times than I can count. Timbavati is the kind of fun I remember as a kid. Nice layout, cool and extremely large collection of animals; growing bigger by the year. I fed a giraffe, a camel and numerous other animals by hand. Too cool. Kids and adults will both love it.
