TIMBAVATI WILDLIFE PARK

Timbavati Wildlife Park is located in the Wisconsin Dells, WI. We offer family friendly experiences that allow our guests to be fully immersed in our environment with our friends from the Animal Kingdom. We are home to over 400 animals that represent over 70 different species.

We are a popular destination for vacationing families. Timbavati Wildlife Park offers fun in-park activities that will keep your party entertained for the entire day. We are home to the Old Fort Dells Engine Number 9 train, which is the centerpiece of our Safari Train Ride.

Timbavati Wildlife Park is a unique option for planning a variety of special events. We can accommodate personal events like birthday parties, family reunions, VIP Tours or high volumes of people for large-scale events. We regularly host field trips for schools, daycares and senior centers.

As the seasons change and the cycle of life advances so do our animals and their locations within the park.

Taking A Walk Through The Park

When you walk through the front gate at Timbavati Wildlife Park and pass the ticket booth you land right in the middle of the Waterfalls Area. This area is home to a lot of fowl. From our lesser flamingos to our peach faced lovebirds we know feathers. There are also a lot of really cool small mammals.

Any way you walk out of the Waterfalls Area you can see our beloved Safari Snack Shack with some of the most delicious food this side of the Mississippi. The prices are really reasonable and the drinks are cold. After you’ve stopped for a snack you can hang a left and visit with our spider monkeys or you can take right and visit with our pride of lions and other big felines in our Large Cat Encounter.

Just beyond the Safari Snack Shack we have our brand new mini amphitheater where we have Wildlife Presentations. Continue past that just a bit and you come to our brand new building that we have for our pygmy goats. That building happens to sit in the Interaction Area where we have our two awesome nurseries.

The nurseries are teeming with all manners of new additions. From baby kangaroos to small reptiles, nursery one has a lot of really cool little critters to see. Nursery two has a lot of little mammals to check out also. Our Fennec foxes, owl monkeys and cotton top tamarins are just a little taste of the kinds of critters in the nursery area. The Interaction Area is just starting to heat up also. We have our renowned Parakeet Encounter and a bunch of petting areas for people of all ages to feed and hang out with.

All Aboard

Now some of you good people might not enter through the main gate and instead choose to take a trip on our Safari Train Ride. This takes you through exclusive pastures where you can see ostrich, aoudad, antelope and other animals with names that start with vowels. The train traverses the Grasslands Area of Timbavati Wildlife Park. This area is home to our newest addition which happens to be the second largest land mammal, the rhinoceros.

The Safari Train Ride takes you right up to and stops at our Giraffe and Camel Feeding Encounter. You will deboard the train and be front and center with the tallest mammal in the world the giraffe. Here you can feed them and the camels.

For those who only purchased a Safari Train Ride you’ll re board the train and pass the large cat house and a couple of other cool encounters on your way back to the gift shop. Train rider who purchased a General Admission will deboard the Safari Train Ride at the Giraffe and Camel feeding encounter. This places you right in front of the Woodlands Area. The Woodlands Area is home to our Camel Ride Encounter. You can take a trip on one of these desert ships during the summer months, weather permitting.

The Woodlands Area is also home to our white emu, kudu, crowned crane, spur-thigh tortoise, Swine Time Pig Racing… Look I could go on and on but you shouldn’t just take my word for it. Pop on over to our ticket’s page and visit the park today.

Testimonials
  • Wendy our tour guide was awesome. Even though there was so many of us she still did awesome. I loved hanging out with the little ones in the nursery. Wendy also explained to me and some of my kids that kangaroo’s don’t grab your arm to attack you (like I thought) that’s how they hug ( one grabbed my arm and I got scared while feeding them) explains a lot now on what he was trying to do. Our daycare friends loved it there. Thanks again to Wendy.

  • I am writing to say thank you for such a wonderful zoo experience. We have been to many zoos and animal activities with our two little girls. Numerous times during our visit to Timbavati, my husband and I said to eachother, “I have never done that before, I have never seen that before!” We left feeling like we enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience with our children. We had fed a giraffe before, but NEVER like this. My husband said he flet like feeding the kangaroos and petting them was the most amazing experience with animals in his life. I am in love with your giraffes and Donna who was so kind to my children at the giraffe area. My five year old loved the parakeets, we all did! That was amazing!! The animal show and, Becky the trainer were so cool. Beck spent time with our girls in the nursery helping them to meet the skunk. My oldest wants to be a veterinarian or animal trainer and this was truly inspirational.

    It is clear that you staff loves the animals, even more so, the animals love people. They are so well cared for and must live happy, happy lives. They interact through their cages, they aren’t pacing, and they are so happy to see people. We are so thankful that we came to Timbavati and wanted to tell you how much we appreciated it. You will be a permanent stop on our list anytime we can get to the Wisconsin Dells. Thank you for the work you do and for the methods you use to care for you animals. I know people are not always kind to zoos and animal parks, so I wanted to be sure to tell you how remarkable our experience was. Thank you again.

  • We absolutely loved the park. The train ride was great. We fed giraffes by hand and it was amazing. The park was clean and there was a huge variety of animals. Feeding the parakeets was a one of a kind experience. I don’t know of any zoo/park where you can get this close to the animals. The camels were fun and very friendly. We spent around 5 hours in the park and our 5 year old was entertained the whole time.

  • What a great experience! So many animals and a very friendly staff. Little by little you can see the improvements they are making all over the park. Kelsey and Sam in the Nursery were awesome and answered any questions we had. ~Erica Genich-Lipinski

  • My friends and I had spent the week at Mirror Lake back in August and were looking for things to do. A waitress at a bar where we stopped to have a drink suggested this place. My friends and I have never heard of it before but were willing to check it out. I can’t tell you how much fun we had. It was awesome feeding the giraffes and the goats. I even spent the money to get my picture taken with the tiger cub. It all was worth it. I hope to be able to come back again this time with my nephews and niece who I think would love this place.

  • After reading the Google reviews we had considered not going to the park, but then decided to check it out for ourselves and we’re glad we did. The park is amazing and we had a great time. The workers (excluding one) were all very attentive to the animals needs. The cages were adequate for each individual animal. None of the animals exhibited any signs of abuse and the ones we could interact with were very trusting, which indicated the love they’ve seen from their keepers. Both my husband and I enjoyed the fact that most of the animals were very alert and spent a lot of their time towards the front of their cages; compared to other animal parks or zoos where sometimes it’s difficult to even find the animal.

  • I visited “The Dells” as a kid more times than I can count. Timbavati is the kind of fun I remember as a kid. Nice layout, cool and extremely large collection of animals; growing bigger by the year. I fed a giraffe, a camel and numerous other animals by hand. Too cool. Kids and adults will both love it.
