Good little zoo

we're spoiled because we live near Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, IL so it's hard to compete with that. But, this is a cute little zoo that we got free tickets to thru our hotel... read more

Overall it was fun for the kids but I got bit by one of the zebras at the petting zoo (there were only 3 total animals there.) It broke my skin so I would definitely skip the petting zoo. Also the train ride was overpriced - should be included with the already high prices.

This park was like a mini city zoo. The animals were very accessible to view. They also had a park ranger explain all about some selected animals. The concession stand had a good variety of food and drink. There were several places where you could buy food to feed some animals and birds. For some strange reason I was fascinated... More

I really liked how many animals were in this Wildlife Park. Some zoos don't allow you to feed the animals but this Wildlife park you could feed some of the animals carrots and my son which is going to be 2 loved all the animals he saw and even the bird area.

My daughter was so excited to feed giraffes! You can also feed camels, ride a camel, and really get close and interact with many animals. It is not a large park - you could perhaps spend half a day here, and admission is certainly not cheap. However, when you are there you see that they are constantly expanding and improving... More

It was expensive but what an awesome experience!!! You can feed giraffes and kangaroos and many other animals. They come right to you as soon as they see you have food :)

My family and I decided to go to Timbavati mainly because admission came free with our stay at the Kalahari. If it weren't for that I don't think we would have gone simply because the admission price is a tad steep for an unfinished park. I did however enjoy that they were still building and working towards an even more... More

What a wonderful place to take the kids. It's very clean and had a lot of different experiences for kids and adults alike. The kids enjoyed the animals and all the opportunity ' they had to pet he animals! It was a all day event for us. The place is actually really big.

My husband and I stood alone at the ticket counter for a full five minutes before deciding to give this place a try. What a surprise it was! It was much larger than we expected and we had a great time. The animals were beautiful and we were able to get so close to many of them. We had never... More
