We had a wonderful afternoon yesterday! Serena and Ang were extremely accommodating of our 3 loud and enthusiatic kiddos. The knowledge they imparted was well received and we all had such fun! Huge thanks to all involved, and a special mention to the chef 😊. Treats were fabulous. Feeding the giraffes was the highlight for the kids, but the liitle pangolin and Mateo stole my heart. A truly great experience. Highly recommend it!

We visited wild is life last week, with our toddlers. The Sanctuary is beautiful, and very well kept. Highlight was by far the pangolin. However your guide was unfriendly and not at all accommodating to us with our toddlers, it almost seemed as if she was annoyed with us. I was quite disappointed with this part of your sanctuary as I find it very important that the new generation and generations to come learn how valuable our wild life is, something I as a Zimbabwean and mother is trying to instill in her children. Please rather have an age restriction if your staff finds small people difficult to deal with. Regards Rina Pragji

Dear Rina, Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a review of your afternoon experience with us. We are so sorry that you did not feel that your children were not well received at Wild is Life and ZEN. Education and the teaching of compassion for wildlife is a core function of the work that we do here. Every year we welcome approximately 2000 underprivileged school children to Wild is Life, ensuring that they are able to enjoy their natural heritage and learn to treasure it. As you rightly say, educating children about wildlife is critically important, so we thank you for bringing your children for this experience. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed meeting Marimba the Pangolin, who holds a very special place in our hearts, as well as that of our Nation. We thank you Kindly for the support that you gave us by visiting the Sanctuary, as our guest visits are extremely important for the funding of the work being done in rescue and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned animals. Warm wishes Roxy Danckwerts

I just came here on the advice of my hotel and was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be a fun evening of giraffe’s and tasty tea/liquor/cocktails/flatbread/dessert. It’s a must do if you’re traveling through the area or even as a birthday/anniversary treat!

This is a fantastic place to go - not only is it very educational, but it also save rescue animals. And the experience is like no other. Make sure to make a reservation via email before, it's all quick and efficient. Then, book a transport and simply show up. For me the transport from city center was 25$ per ride. It's near the airport and an airbase, but the area is very quiet. The admission fee is 95$. Not cheap, but your money will go towards supporting the activities of the place, such as saving baby elephants and releasing them back into the wild, providing food for all the residents, medical care, and so on. Also the experience is very immersive. There are friendly guides and animal handlers, answers for all the questions and the chance to interact directly with some of the animals. I saw baby elephants, various antelopes, lions, a lovely pangolin, hyenas, giraffes, cheetahs, lions and a little dog. All of them were rescued from terrible situations. We were able to feed the giraffes and pet the super friendly wildebeest. No need to worry about dinner - we received drinks, coffee, cakes and hot pizza. All in all, fantastic experience and also an ethical choice.
