I highly recommend this to anyone as it provides a unique experience with animals and nature that can't be found anywhere else! You get to have a personal experience- away from the touristy animal experiences! Delicious food, beautiful scenery, lovely people, amazing animals! its a must!

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

I had the best day there, the owners and staff are so nice and passionate about what they do. They showed us around the property in due time. It wasn't an exhausting walk, and you get to meet other nice people from the group. It is very safe so you can bring your kids. Group sizes are perfect for both the viewers and the animals. Next time I am in Zimbabwe I will surely pay them another visit. The animals are well taken care of and seemed happy.

“Absolutely incredible afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Thank you so much to the Dankwerts' for creating this beautiful sanctuary for animals. It is an absolute must see when visiting Zimbabwe! It is so lovely to see people caring so much for our animals and making sure that they stay an important part of Zimbabwe! An incredible experience to see baby Ellie, Moyo! As well as the lovely animals, an exquisite high tea in the afternoon and champagne in the evening, what a treat! Thank you. I highly recommend an afternoon at the Wild Is Life farm.
