It was a little over price for a zoo itself but we loved it. Wish it could've been a lot longer but for an off season price, it was too over budget. But definitely love all the feedings, especially the parakeets and the nursery was...More

Timbatavi is a very intriguing zoo. When you first walk in, you look at it as if it was all a waste of money, especially at the $20 ticket price. But it’s amazing just how immersive the experience is the further you get. It’s quite...More

We only went because it was included with our Kalahari deal. It's not bad but we wouldn't pay regular price to go again. Only if already included. Regular price is too high.

Our stay at the Kalahari included tickets to the Timbavati. This was such a fun place for the kids and my husband and I. The parakeet feeding is a must although, they will sometimes bite your toes (if you have sandals on!)!! We thought it...More

My mom and I got to feed giraffes, something I never did before. NOT only that but we were able to pet baby foxes, due to them being taken out of their cage for some reason, likely cage cleaning. The price was not bad to...More

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 nothing extravagant but well-maintained and...More

Amazing! We got to feed giraffes, pet and feed goats and parakeets, feed kangaroos, and a whole variety of other exotic animals. So much more fun and interactive for the kids then just looking at animals in their cages. They also had pig races, an...More
