Brilliant outing, felt like staying for good. Beautiful setting, great company and gracious hosts.
Sundowners feel like an institution. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We were pleasantly surprised regarding the Cape Town "Grand" connection. Congrats on the work you are doing, the African dream remains alive. Best Regards CY Family.

We live in Harare and have been to Wild is Life twice, as well as sending my parents-in-law there on their own. It is a wonderful afternoon of animal interaction, education and feeling that you're making a positive contribution to conservation in Zimbabwe. The animals are a joy to watch and the setting in which you enjoy afternoon tea followed by drinks and canapés is fantastic. It's not every day you can scratch a wildebeest's head, pat a kudu or feed a seven week old giraffe. Angela was a great host and Roxy and Craig also mingled with us at various stages along the way. All in all, a must do experience and one which will stay with you for a long time.

A warm welcome from Angela, Roxy and the animals awaited us at Wild is Life, and a wonderful afternoon, a fabulous outing. The ethos of Roxy and her team is amazing, as is the bond that she and the handlers share with each of the animals. Getting to meet each personality as an individual emphasized the charm of their respective species. An amazing day, with too many highlights to mention and wonderful memories to be taken away, was finished off with sundowners in the most idyllic setting. What a way to celebrate the diversity and beauty of Africa!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Zimbabwe. The mission, to care for abandoned and rescued animals is wonderful and you get to see how the animals are cared for and learn how they came to the sanctuary. Then, you are treated to a true "Out of Africa" experience. The setting is the ultimate of "shabby chic" with china and silver settings for tea and champagne while the house Kudu and Ostrich come over to check out what's on your plate.

The tour - to this idyllic spot - is beautifully organised. The staff and the guide are very welcoming. You arrive at around 3.30p.m and see and learn about the animals who have been brought to extend their lives and provide more information on conservation. Feeding time occurs on the tour. We learnt so much and relaxed at the end with lovely canapés and the sundowners in a beautiful tented area.
