My family and I had free passes to the zoo through the Kalahari. From the outside it looks like your typical Dells location slightly cheesy. Inside though I was pleasantly surprised. The initial part where you can feed the animals was fun for my wife and daughter except for the parakeet feeding. TIP: do not go in the bird feeding... More

I loved being able to feed the animals, and I do believe many of them were unique and had a lot of room to roam! I understand the space is still being transformed since this park is only a few years old! I thought the animals were very interactive and the staff was attentive! Also check out the candy store...

This newly converted water park to wildlife center is wonderful! The alligators reside in an old kiddie pool with a working mushroom fountain. One of the old water slide platforms serves as an observation deck and provides a great view from the top. They have a great variety of animals and do a wildlife show and pig races several times...

A good complement to the water and amusement parks. A little too expensive, therefore, look for discounts from your hotel.

So I wrote a review, negative, on the actual Timbavati website that I see they did not post. Upon entering the facility you first noticed that it is very unorganized in the layout. It was hard to identify where to walk to find the animals as building seemed to be haphazardly placed on the grounds. In the immediate area, there... More

Reasonable price for a great family activity. The staff really seems to care about the animals and they seemed well taken care of. There were lots of opportunity for interaction with the animals. The parakeets were awesome to feed and hold. The snack shop food was good and also reasonable. The printer was down so unfortunately we couldn’t get pictures... More

We stopped with complimentary passes from our hotel. If we had paid full price it would have been disappointing at this time. Half of the animals are spread out in different buildings in an old paved lot with little signage. You just wander from around from building to building not knowing what is in the building or how the place... More

I loved the Timbavati zoo, it was a very unique, and a great hands-on experience. Bigger than I would have imagined the zoo being, with a wide variety of animals. Yes, the zoo was a bit expensive, but what do you expect, it's Wisconsin Dells. Everything is expensive there. I am a local and I would recommend this place to... More

This is a small zoo but our family loved it! We arrived first thing in the AM and all the animals were out. We bought carrots to feed the animals. There are not many zoos around that allow you to get close to the animals so you can feed them. We had a Blast! Find a coupon to save a... More

This is one of the most unique and fun interactive zoos Ive been to. They allow you to feed carrots to many of the animals, and petting a giraffe or kangaroo is not uncommon. They have a parakeet attraction where you can feed the birds interactively. My son had as many as 6 birds on him at one time. Great... More
