This place is still fairly new and growing but has the potential to be an amazing wildlife park. We had a blast on the train and feeding the giraffes. They also had 3 bear cubs there that were so much fun to watch play in the water. The staff was knowledge about the animals and willing to answer questions from... More

I was apprehensive about going to this attraction, it is pricey 20.00 for adults, not sure about kids. I will tell you it is worth it. You can buy a cup of sliced carrots for 4.00 and feed almost everything in the park. The park is also much bigger than it seems. They have animal shows, and a station where... More

Took our 1 year old son to Timbavati and had a great time. Lots of opportunities to see animals up close. Also got to feed animals from the train ride. Loved the baby bear cubs climbing all over the fencing and fighting with each other. The giraffes were so cool, we got to feed them carrot sticks right out of... More

Park just opened for the season last weekend. Great up close viewing of a wide variety of creatures. Chose the new behind the scenes tour, then a train ride around the park. Don't miss it!

My husband and I went to the Dells this weekend, for a business trip, and decided to stick around a little longer for some fun. We had a great weekend, even though it was off-season and too cold for waterparks. But, I have to say, the absolute best part of our trip was Timbavati Wildlife Park. I don't know if... More

Amazing experience! This environment allows participants to pet and feed animals such as giraffes, lamas, kangaroos, and even zebras. To have this type of experience at any other facility you would have to pay hundreds. The staff is very welcoming and happy to answer questions. The animals are loved and well cared for by the knowledgeable staff. I would recommend... More

Our visit today left a LOT to be desired. We were mislead about ticket pricing (sold us train tickets and tHen told us the train ride is free with park tickets AFTER we got off the train, super frustrating!!) Train ride was pretty short and other than feeding giraffes and a camel was pretty disappointing. We will not be returning... More

My husband and I had such an amazing time. The staff was beyond wonderful. One of the managers gave us our own "personal tour." Gave us back round info on many of the animals & even took us behind the scenes. We met the actual owner of the zoo. So nice to see him hands on with the major projects... More

We had a blast! Our whole family went. There was something that appealed to every age group in our party. The kids loved the train, and we all loved hand feeding the animals. There were opportunities to to take photos with baby animals, and the nursery was up close and interesting to see. The pig races were hilarious, and the... More

Really nice place but obviously a work in progress. Up close and personal kind of place. Wear your walking shoes, cause you will use them. The animals appear to be very healthy and well cared for and that is a must see.
