Had never seen a Pangolin before and was simply amazed by seeing this truly incredible creature which all by itself makes it worth visiting the place. The rest is a great bonus (and the food is nice).

I really loved this place! Their goal is to save and release all wild life that they can and the ones that they can't have a safe and wonderful home as long as they live. Where else can you have an afternoon tea with baby giraffes and other heard animals. Don't even get me started on the baby elephants!

In Harare near the airport is this wonderful animal sanctuary. We saw so many species of game so close to us including lions, giraffes, elephants cheetas, hyenas, impala etc. we were given the opportunity to feed the Giraffes. The highlight of the tour was a very friendly Pangoulin. at the end of the day we had high tea which was... More

My husband & I visited this sanctuary with friends who live in Harare & have visited a few times before. I can see why they enjoy going back as it is quite a wonderful place to visit. Let me just start by saying that we just came from 4 days at the Hide in Hwange (see review), but this place... More

What a wonderful place to visit. We took family from Australia (from Zim originally) and spent a fantastic morning at Wild is Life. Knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, and lovely staff too, who obviously care deeply for their charges. Fabulous for getting up close and personal, and especially for getting great photos and videos. They are doing an incredible job,... More

I loved this sanctuary!! You can only visit by appt so the tour is very intimate. We had the whole place to ourselves for the tour! The staff are so dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of the animals. I had so much fun feeding the giraffes, seeing a pangolin up close, watching the baby elephants, seeing the lions get...

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
