I felt really bad for all of the animals at this park. It looks like they are trying to make it a nice area, but it is an old waterpark made into an wildlife park it is kind of sad. A lot of the animals are in small cages and don't have much room to move around. I wouldn't go... More

I took my 3 yr old daughter to the park few weeks ago and it was just awesome. Everyone in the park was so friendly. We ate at the snack shack and our food was great. The pig races were alot of fun and so was the train. The prices are reasonable and i would recommend this wildlife park if... More

I actually found this place to be very depressing. The "nursery" area houses animals in extremely small boxes. I didn't go away from here feeling good about the way the animals were living. However, the pens were all very clean and all the animals had fresh water.

My family and I visited the park earlier this week and it was the highlight of a pretty fabulous summer. I have two boys, ages 15 and 9, they both enjoyed all the attractions as did my husband and I. Where else can you come face to face with Zebras and a giraffe! Make sure you buy the carrots to... More

Timbavati Wildlife Park is an up-close in your face with the animals type of park. We took the train where we fed animals carrots from our hands, pet and fed giraffes, hugged the camels, and pet many more animals that typically you can't get near. We had kids from ages 9-15 plus several adults and all enjoyed the park. We... More

This was really an unexpected treat. So many of the dells attractions are expensive and "cheesey" but not Timbavati Wildlife park. In our opinion it was well worth the price. It seems small and and not very trilling until you start to explore the park, so don't be fooled by your first impression. What is unique about Timbavati is that... More

We got free tickets to the park from Kalahari resort and I am sure I would have a different opinion if I had to pay because prices seem high for this attraction. It took us just over an hour to walk through the whole park, so it is pretty small. For $4 you can purchase a cup of cut up... More

My son and I spent about 2 1/2 hours looking at the animals and watching the wildlife show and pig races. My son was able to ride a camel, get a giraffe to take a carrot out of his mouth, and pet a baby tiger. He had a wonderful time. So many different animals to see that we haven't seen... More

I've drove past this place many times while in the Dells and have never thought of stopping but today we did and I'm so glad we did! There is a great assortment of animals and for $4 you can buy a cup of carrots to feed certain animals. It was very fun! Reasonably priced also. The only draw back was... More

We ended up going on a cool rainy day. When we pulled up we weren't sure they were even open. It looked like a ghost town... there wasn't any staff present at all. When we got to the giraffe area we wanted to try to feed/pet it...the girl working made it seem like it was an inconvenience to help us.... More
