  • We visited here for the first time. For a family of 4 we spent close to $100 to get in and take the train ride also. It was a decent wildlife park with your average zoo animals. The exhibits are nothi...  more »

  • How much fun this was! You could touch almost everything and can get super close. The parakeet display was awesome as well as the nursery for the babies. Lots of walking but nice paths. Bathrooms were gross. Admission was reasonable but the food for the animals was high.
  • I would like to share my experience at Timbavati Wild Life Park. Me and my wife visited Timbavati on 09/24/2017 around 4.00 pm. At the entrance we took tickets. We finished around 6:20 pm and head to the exit gate. We found that exit doors are locked. Then we went to ticket counter but that was also closed for the day. Somehow we got their contact number. We called that number but no one was there to answer and voice message was Timbavati Wild LIfe Park closes at 7 pm. We were just 2 people in whole park and my wife was scared. We walked for around 15-20 minutes to find someone who can help us to get out of park. After a while we saw one lady heading towards exit. We rush to her for help at around 6:45 pm. She was a staff of Timbavati and about to leave. When we told her that we are looking for a way to go out she said park is closed at 6 pm. But no one told us that park is going to close at 6 pm and when we told that lady their voice message says they close at 7 pm, she said she may have forgot to change the voice message. There was no closing announcement in the park for the visitors Instead of apologizing she scared us saying we may end up spending up night with lions and tigers which are hungry. She was very rude. They should respect their visitors and polite to them. We expect much better customer service from such famous parks. Its a heads up for all the visitors that they should check the timings else you would end up staying in the park as no Timbavati Staff cares about their visitors.
  • Lots of fun. Well worth it. Got to pet a bunch of animals. Took a picture holding a baby kangaroo. Go in the morning and there's hardly anyone there. They take good care of the animals there.
  • I LOVED this place! I've heard mixed reviews but we got tickets free with our stay at American Resort and so we have it a chance. My favorite animal is a giraffe and getting to feed and pet one in real life was the best experience I have ever had. That's something you just can't do at any old zoo. It is DEFINITELY worth the entry price and I would pay that the next time I go! It's great for all ages!
  • My kid loved it one customer side she wanted to unlock all the doors and let them go I said they wouldn't live long at least in hear they get food and appreciation and we as humans get to learn about them .. The train conducted needs a raise he was awesome the animals were were super cool. The camel ride was super cool. The birds were cool to feed and we will be back to visit.
