The Petting Areas of Timbavati Wildlife Park

By Chris Taylor Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Our understanding of our place on this planet is inherently intertwined with every living plant, animal and the planet itself. I am not sure if you can completely appreciate the world that we live in without spending time interacting with the animals we share this planet with. That’s the magnitude of emotion that many people like me experience when they visit our petting areas.

The petting areas in Timbavati Wildlife Park are adjacent to our animal nurseries. We keep a lot of younger animals here while they grow big and strong enough to rejoin their respective species. We also spend a significant amount of time working with these young critters acclimating them to daily interaction with humans, being fed and posing for selfies. 🙂
