This place is just a lovely little gem very close to Harare. The staff does a wonderful job in conservation and education. The ground are just gorgeous and so relaxing. I fed a baby giraffe her milk and got to play with a 4-month old elephant. What a way to spend a saturday afternoon. I think the cost is totally worth it and all the money goes to a great cause. The staff are so friendly and so dedicated to taking care of these animals. I wish everyone had this opportunity to give them a sense of how precious these creatures are. Also, where else are you going to see a real live anteater (pangolin) . . . so awesome!!

Great experience. Would totally recommend this to anyone interested in wildlife. Hosts were amazing and give you the story behind all of their animals too. The absolute highlight was seeing the baby elephant. Life-long memory for sure. Thanks again for hosting us.

I could not recommend a place to visit more than Wild is Life Grand Zimbabwe. You get so much from an afternoon spent there. From the incredible range of well looked after animals, to the delicious tea and refreshments you are offered. Thank you for giving me such an incredible experience there, I will never forget it.

Excellent! It wasn't what I was expecting so it was a delightful surprise to get up close with animals normally only seen in the wild. A worthwhile experience all round

Really enjoyed this well organised attraction. A good range of animals that all look well cared for. The pangolin is a treat to see! The refreshments and hospitality were excellent. While the $85 entry fee is steep, you do not feel short changed. A wonderful experience with African animals!
