This is a great place to visit as a family! We loved being able to interact with the animals. Feeding the Giraffes was the coolest experience; they are so HUGE, yet so gentle. We also got to see the baby Giraffe up close, so cute! We rode the train, and that was neat! The staff was very friendly and was... More

If you love animals and my family does then you will love this park like we did. We got really close and got to touch and feed animals and it was awesome. Great memories for sure.

I usually don't write bad reviews, my husband and I decided to visit this "safari park", we were very disappointed and saddened. The animals where kept in very small cages, with know shade. The eagle had no place to fly. I felt this attraction was a cash grab, they are more into this for the cash, than the animals. They... More

We only had one night and one day in the Dells and we had passes to a water park the next day so we decided to try one of the other attractions. This place was great, it had just rained so many of the guests had left and we walked into an almost empty park. All the animals were out... More

If you want to see animals wrongly and poorly mistreated then this is the place for you! Not only do the animals have physical lashings and burnings on them, their exhibits are concrete or wood chips with no vegetation or trees and not nearly large enough for the multiple animals shoved in them. Hard to enjoy the zoo when all... More

When we came in we thought that this wouldn't take long, but once we got in and exploring, we spent 6 hours in the park and loved every minute. We want to come back when they are done with the conversion. Such a fantastic experience feeding the animals. So wonderful!

We decided to go to the Timbavati after my niece begged to go because she heard you could pet an actual baby tiger. Well she was right my kids got to pet a 5 week old baby tiger which was priceless. Now this zoo is a work in progress and still getting off the ground but they provided so really... More

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.
