My favorite place to visit while in The Dells!

You are able to get so close to, and often times feed and touch nearly all the animals. We were able to tickle some kangaroos toes and snuggle with a baby zebra among many many... read more

My sister and I visited Timbavati Wildlife Park and found it to have many unique and open animal enclosures. The park and enclosures were attractive and clean. The animals appeared to be very healthy and well taken care of. It was quite easy to observe the animals. The layout of the park made it easy to get around comfortably and... More

You are able to get so close to, and often times feed and touch nearly all the animals. We were able to tickle some kangaroos toes and snuggle with a baby zebra among many many other close and absolutely wonderful animal encounters. It is rather pricey but I personally think it's totally worth it.

We visited for the first time in 2012, when they just started remodeling the old River View Water Park. We were pleasantly surprised in May of 2016 when we returned for a second visit. Our enjoyment led to the purchase of a summer pass and 9 subsequent visits over the summer and fall. The park is still a work in... More

The Timbavati Wildlife Park in Wisconsin Dells greatly exceeded my expectations. They have the most incredible selection of gorgeous and well cared for animals I have seen. From the impressive collection of large cats, to marsupials, birds and extraordinary selection of new arrivals in the nursery. The giraffes were incredible, the rare white Emus and extremely rare pair of Cassowary... More

We visited Timbavati Wildlife Park beacuse it was included in our stay at the Kalahari. We did not stay long because the animals all appeared distressed and it was heartbreaking. Multiple animals paced in their enclosures making it difficult to enjoy seeing them. The indoor buildings could improve on the air circulation system, as they had a strong odor in... More

I have to be honest, I purchased the tickets on Groupon, but regular tickets are $20 a piece. That's insane for what you are getting. The areas for the animals was small, I understand it is not a Zoo, but still. If you don't have enough space for the animals, you should not be housing them. I'm no crazy animal... More

I came here with my boyfriend and we both enjoyed our visit. I have read many complaints about the zoo being too expensive. While it is on the pricey side...so is EVERYTHING in the Dells. I did not mind paying the cost here as I know the money is used to care for the animals. I loved the experience of... More

We got free tickets from the Kalahari. It would not be worth what ticket price is. We paid $10 for a box of food to feed the animals. That was fun. Kids and I loved the parakeet shack. If you buy the seed sticks the birds sit all over you. It was silly and fun. They also wanted to eat... More

When you first get there it looks pretty run down and the signage is not very good on where you should go for things like the train or where the animals are. Once we went in and walked a little we got to the giraffes and the camel and the kids were excited to feed them. There are some pretty... More
