I visited "The Dells" as a kid more times than I can count. Timbavati is the kind of fun I remember as a kid. Nice layout, cool and extremely large collection of animals; growing bigger by the year. I fed a giraffe, a camel and numerous other animals by hand. Too cool. Kids and adults will both love it.

I have over twenty years experience in the animal medical field and I have never seen a better run zoo! The Chicago zoos can't compare or keep up! Timbavati is amazingly clean! Not a single animal had feces in their enclosure. The staff at timbavati went out of their way to give my family our best vacation in the de... More

Had a great time, will never forget it. We also had a 9 month old son and he loved it. The staff was amazing, and animals were well taken care. Better then any zoo I have been to.

Visited the park recently and it was a great experience. The opportunity to feed the animals was a hit with the whole family. The park seems to be expanding and looks to be getting better and better. All of the employees were helpful and knowledgeable. Even they guys in the Snack Shack gave us a lot of inside info! As... More

After a huge amount of work the park had finished its 1st full summer season. It's growing all the time with new exhibits and animals. It might be a bit pricey for some families, but real animals are always a treat to see. Stop and check them out!

Not sure how long this place has been open, we were wondering if it's new, or very old being renovated.? You can tell it used to be a waterpark at one time, the "viewing platforms" were stairways for slides, there was a cement frog kiddie pool area reminisce, ect. There were not many animals and they were very spaced apart.... More

I live in the Dells, and this is one of my favorite attractions. Took my 2 year old boy today and he loved every minute of it! Highly recommend it... and they just keep making it better every summer we go back!

Skip the train and just do the walk! Nursery and other animals trumped any savings by doing the 10 dollar train ride and I felt bad for the people that only paid for it. Coupon got 3 in for $50 with $4 carrots that lasted the walk. Wish I knew her name that fed them on 9/2/14 she was awesome... More

We went there right after Labor Day. Not crowded at all, so we had great access to things. No camel rides or pig races, but the train was free with our admission. My 3 year old loved the train! It was shorter than I expected, but animals did come right up to us. There was a baby zebra in the... More
