We loved it, particularly seeing the pangolin. I hope he is still there, I didn't see it in your picture.

After being in Zim for a month I had barely seen a giraffe. I couldn't travel all the way to Africa AND be there for a month and not get up close and personal with a giraffe. I had googled sanctuaries/parks in Harare and stumbled across Wild Is Life. After my partner confirmed the booking, I emailed straight away and... More

All about Wild is Life has a magic flair! Pikles, the worthog, Noodle the wilderbeast, all the lions, the cheetas and Moyo, the elephant (I have yet to meet all his other pals), the pangolin and his amazing human friend. The giraffes, the zebras, the feeding of the amazingly beautiful lions. And the high tea definitely worth of its name,... More

What a wonderful afternoon out. It starts with giraffe feeding which is so much fun and great for children, followed by refreshments. Next stop is the lion feeding and tour round the sanctuary finishing up with the Pangolin. The visit ends with drinks and canapés in a beautiful setting with the animals passing by for selfies! Wild is Life is... More

I went with my family for a treat, and my expectations were exceeded! It really is worth the (admittedly high) price. Fantastic time learning about and meeting the beautiful animals, particularly the pangolin and baby elephant Moyo! Great food and service :)

Wonderful way to learn more about African wildlife with hands on experience and close up viewing. The animals are so well cared for and you just feel the warmth of love. The high tea is incredibly delicious and fun too!

Beautiful way to spend an afternoon with friends. Bottomless champagne, beautifully presented eats and cake. Got to feed the giraffes and met the pangolin. Couldn't meet the cheetahs as it was pouring with rain. It is pricey @$95 per head but you get your money's worth and the money also goes towards upkeep of the orphaned animals. A memorable one...

We loved, loved, loved Wild is Life. Not only is it a brilliantly run sanctuary for animals and an incredible chance to get up close to giraffes, elephants, lions and more, but also the most wonderful hospitality. The animals are all here for a reason and are fantastically cared for. Where possible there is a programme to release them into... More
