At first we were disappointed. There are huge expanses of old and new pavement, empty space, and little activity. I will give them credit with having some animals I have never even heard of before, and lots of the species had up to 10 in a pen and not just 2 or 3. We didn't like that most of the... More

My family with two teens ages 14 and 15 enjoyed the Timbavati Wildlife Park. We spent about 1.5 hours walking around the park. We really enjoyed feeding carrots to the giraffes and goats. You do NOT have to ride the train to feed the giraffes. We walked right up the giraffe feeding area and fed them. This attraction has really... More

We had a wonderful time visiting Timbavati Wildlife Park. Definitely recommend the train ride. The anima come right up to you and you are able to feed them! A once in a lifetime opportunity.

$40 for a 20 min train ride. 56 with coupons to the park and camel rides were 7 more. Don't waste your time

The price was the only thing we did not like. The animal interactions were amazing. My kids lived feeding the giraffes and camels. It looks like they are still adding to this business and maybe someday will be worth the full price. For now I think they should be charging about half as much as they are.

Our family went today and had a great time. The negatives: The restrooms are not great one of the sinks did not work. To get a picture with the Tiger cubs would have been $30. More selection of animals would have been a plus. The positives: The admission is reasonable understand that it costs to care for animals people food,... More

For 3 people with coupons it cost us $51 and they charge $4 for a small cup of carrots, there weren't really that many animals, It kind of looked rum down and it left me feeling like the animals were being neglected, I was curious about where the animals were kept when it is winter and ask the grumpy old...

We visited today and it far exceeded our expectations! The staff was helpful knowledgable and friendly, there were lots of animals to see very up close - like big lions and tigers camels giraffes. Many opportunities for interacting with the animals. We had a great time!

The Timbavati park was fantastic. It is still under construction, but the number of animals, and the amazing interactions with so many of them, was incredible. Feeding giraffes, hugging and snuggling with camels, petting a baby zebra, and feeding and petting many animals that I didn't even recognize. The kids (8 and 6) absolutely loved it too. We got so...

My family has visited many zoos across the country, and this was one of our favorites. Very up close, and even got to feed baby animals, and got to pet a baby tiger. We recommend this place and will return on our next trip to the Dells...
