New Construction Projects for 2016

By Chris Taylor Monday, July 11, 2016

Greetings friends! I hope you are enjoying all of the best that nature has to offer all of us this summer. This week we are shifting gears from our usual animal discussions to some of the behind the scenes things that we have going at Timbavati Wildlife Park.

Taking A Look Into Our Construction

One major change that we are making this year is an addition to our exterior Rock Wall.

This extension will mirror our main entrance that extends from our gift shop to the picnic area.

We pulled out the old Go Kart track that has been at the location for many years. We wanted to do something that aligned better who we are as an attraction. So gone is the roar of the fiberglass F1 fleet to make room for a new pasture which will allow our guests the ability to have more interactions with animals when they take the Safari Train Ride in the near future.

As you can see from the pictures here, we left the overpass from the Go Karts. This is being repurposed as a shaded area for the animals to relax in.

That isn’t all that’s new in 2016. We have also remodeled our Camel Ride Stand in the Woodlands Area. The new additions have included flowerbeds, fresh sod, new mulch, fences and a couple of trees.

Our improvements aren’t ending there either. Our nurseries are being redone to make the habitats more inviting for their denizens and our guests.

There are a bunch of other things we can discuss like new black top and lines in the parking lot or the perpetual motion of our award winning Master Gardeners but this is probably a good place to pull the reigns back on this week’s blog and get you the link to this week’s video which gives you a better look at it than the pictures do. Blog with you all next week!
