An amazing experience we had, being close to the wild, feeding... The life stories are touching, everyone there is doing a pretty good job. The tea... the champagne afterwards- splendid! Keep it up!

Mrs Danckwerts has set up an amazing wonderful fantastic place. They deserve all the support they get. The fees support her work. What they are doing and trying to do is incredible. Worth every cent. Especially for people mostly in Harare.

My first experience at Wild is Life was my Nieces's Hen Party, which was magical - feeding giraffes, photo poses with Cheetah's, the buck eating the flower arrangements, feeding of the lions. Bearing in mind that all these animals are here to be rehabilitated and...More

I took my sister-in-law from UK, and we had a truly wonderful afternoon. It is good to know that what we were paying is going to a really good cause, and they are doing a fantastic job with the public's help.
