We were excited to go to this new Wildlife park. For the cost it's not worth it the price of admission. Cages were very small and many unmarked so you didn't know what you were looking at. The map was not updated and hard to read. There were a few nice things but could be spiced up more, grounds itself... More

This zoo was unorganized and the map was bad. They said they had animals in one place, but they were across the park, or not in the zoo at all. The pens for the animals were ridiculously small and the Penguins were outdoors only. Some of the animals did not even have signs to tell you what it was whereas... More

I had mixed feelings on this place. It's super expensive. The pig races were cute. My kids enjoyed feeding carrot sticks to the giraffes, zebras, goats, and camels. The wildlife show was interesting. Parakeet encounter was neat. I hated the big cat area though. Four tigers in a small area...not cool!! I hated that you could take a picture with... More

We are a party of 5, grandparents with 3 grandsons ages 10 and 13. We were given complementary tickets for this attraction by Kalahari, where we were staying. We didn't know what to expect but it was much more than anticipated! I was able to get some nice photos of the 'baby' wild animals in their nursery area and loved... More

We stop at Timbavati every year we visit the Dells. They have many more attractions this year compared to last year. We really enjoyed all the macaws and parakeets. Granted there is nothing really 'exotic' about parakeets. But my oldest daughter (10) absolutely loves any kind of interaction with animals. The seed sticks you can buy are pretty pricey. Especially... More

This was our 2nd time at the park. We come up once a year. It keeps growing and is a very well kept animal park. The giraffes area lot of fun, they have baby animals, pig races, a animal show and so much more. Our grandkids loved the park as well. The age ranged from 2yrs old to 15 years... More

The park has a great s egg lectionary of animals from the Badeer up to Giraffes anD camels. You are able to get close to them and actually feed a lot of them. You can purchase cups of carrots that most of the animals really liked. Don't forget to catch to catch the pig races!

Disappointed, overpriced, small cages. New alligator pond is a disaster, no more than a shallow concrete pool.

Well, we got the admission free with a stay at Kalahari (but you still pay a lot extra for the 25 min. train ride) so I thought it was good if you've got young kids. Any zoo's more impressive. ..and I was a little worried for the animals due to their tiny enclosures. But, my 5 yr old LOVED feeding... More
