Great place to get up close and personal with some animals

This was our 2nd time to Timbavati. Enjoyed it both times. Got to get close with some cool animals, fed carrots to camels and giraffes and got spit on by a lama. Nice people... read more

This wildlife park is one of the best attractions in the Dells. If hand feeding giraffes, camels, emu and a host of other exotic wildlife sounds exciting, you can actually do it at Timbavati. And it won't break the bank either. The admission price is affordable. The animals are kept in spacious and well maintained areas, not cages, and appear... More

This place is awesome for ALL ages. We had 2 young children and 4 adults in our group and we all had fun here.. We took the train ride and fed the animals it was fun for all. It was worth the money to us.

This has the potiential to be a very nice zoo. If all of the animals listed were there it would have been great. All in all it was fun for the children but as we left the park the kids said that our zoo at home (South Bend , Indiana) was better and this is shameful.

Our group had kids ranging from 4 - 14 yrs. There was hardly enough to keep even the 4 yr old animal fanatic occupied for longer than an hour. Hardly any wild animals, more like a petting zoo, than a safari park. Don't waste your time or money on this place.

My family has come here for five years and every year the park gets better. In September there is no crowd and you get great animal interactions with giraffes to parakeets. My kids really enjoyed the baby spider monkey this trip. Buy the lunch box for ten dollars and you will have enough food to feed animals all over the... More

We had a lot of fun and enjoyed our visit lots of animals to see and you can feed a lot of them as well. The big cats are in small enclosures and seem antsy and unhappy pacing back and forth. We did however really enjoy feeding the giraffes, which happen to be my daughters favorite animal. You get to... More

Had a great time here. We visit a lot of animal parks and this is one of the best so far. The people were great and it was fun being able to interact with the animals. Enjoyed the wildlife show at 3:00. We would totally recommend this park !

There are a lot of different animals to see here! You can even get your photo taken with a baby animal for an extra charge but its totally affordable. My favorite thing from there was buying sticks I paid $5 for 3 sticks and fed birds! It was something I had never seen done before and there were hundreds of... More

We visit many zoos and we were not disappointed here. We were able to see many of their animals up close. The feed cup of carrots was extra but you get lot of carrots and many of the animals eat them. The parakeet encounter was fun, as the birds at the seeds on the sticks and landed on you as... More
