Gifts Are What You Make Them

Gifts Are What You Make Them

Posted December 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and family welcome to the holiday hangover. With Christmas 2017 squarely in the rear view mirror we can now turn our attention to the end of the year bashes! Buuuuut before we do. I want to talk about gifts. Gifts are, what you make them. I think of gifts and I think of nicely wrapped presents under a tree and the excitement of what’s in them. You see, that’s the kid in me. That’s the dreamer, the person who “wants” things. The reality is though the best presents you will ever have in your life are the people…

The First Day Of Christmas

The First Day Of Christmas

Posted December 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

On the first day of Christmas Timbavati gave to me..Giraffes and some carrots to feed! I was going to do all 12 days but that’s a lot to type ha ha ha. Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog. First off I would like to thank The Wisconsin Dells Tourist Information Center for the shout out that they gave us on Instagram last week, you guys rock socks. As they stated, we are definitely open year round and have daily tours at 11AM and 1PM. Now on to this week’s topic, which is Christmas shopping. I know this isn’t…

What’s Your Favorite Animal?

What’s Your Favorite Animal?

Posted December 11, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings to you all my friends, this week has been a bit of a dream to me. In that dream I’ve reflected on my childhood that was and it reminded me of how animals were so inspirational when we were young. The strength of the animal is something that our ancestors observed revered and watched with awe. This takes me to this week’s topic, what was/is your favorite animal. Those of us who seek strength and freedom favor animals that take to the skies. The tawny eagle who at 3 feet tall is one of the smaller eagles in the…

When Do Animals Hibernate

When Do Animals Hibernate

Posted December 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hello all and welcome to December! Temperatures have been mild in Wisconsin throughout November so it’s still been really fun to get out and enjoy the fall colors. I have been thinking a lot about the temperatures and it got me to wondering, when do animals actually begin to hibernate. Hibernation is a survival skill, animals store fat and food reserves and sleep for months to survive the harsh winters. But what do they do when it’s 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit? Well the short answer is middle to the end of October. See even though the temperatures are up,…

Badgers Win!

Badgers Win!

Posted November 28, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome Tuesday! I know a lot of you had a blast this holiday weekend and some of you were even brave enough to go shopping in the mosh pit that we all know and love called Black Friday. Of course if you’re from Wisconsin you were probably cheering for Bucky Badger this weekend. In case you missed it, our beloved Badgers had an undefeated season this year.   The Wisconsin Badgers hadn’t gone undefeated since 1912. This got me to thinking, what was going on in the world in 1912? So I dug it up and wanted…

The Timbavati Wildlife Park Peng-Win Countdown

Posted November 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post! Timbavati Wildlife Park has had the fortunate pleasure of having two of our very own starring in a Wisconsin State Lottery Commercial called “Peng-Win Countdown!” Here’s a toast to Mama and Papa. They are our South African penguin couple that inhabit the Waterfalls Area of Timbavati Wildlife Park. Their debut on television and made me want to break down the commercial. Let’s look at what it actually took to pull this feat off. The promotion that the Wisconsin State Lottery is running is called the Peng-Win Countdown. It’s basically a winter…

Quick Facts: Bobcat

Quick Facts: Bobcat

Posted November 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. It’s been awhile since we kicked some animal facts and I figured that this bobcat here looks interesting enough for us to talk about. Because who doesn’t enjoy bobcats? Of course at a distance, but still, we love them.   First let me open by saying bobcats look cute but don’t ever go try to pet them. They aren’t too keen on that. Matter of fact, if you see one you might want to just go the other way. Unless you’re at Timbavati Wildlife Park which of course we will keep…

We Specialize In Interactivity

Posted November 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. I can remember the first time I visited Timbavati Wildlife Park. There was something going on here that I had never experienced at any zoo before. Timbavati has a next level experience when it comes to interactivity.   I mean look at the picture of the giraffe that caps this blog post. We all can identify that there’s a giraffe in the picture but take a look at the Safari Train Ride in the back of the picture on the left. That train is passing through one of our pastures and…

We’re Still Open! Even though the season has ended and the outdoor water parks have emptied their pools for the winter, we’re still open. We never actually completely close, we maintain a staff for the winter and we work with all of the animals all winter long. Their training, feeding and exercise regimens don’t change at all. We retain a full-time staff all winter to facilitate the care and nurturing of the animals. We now have daily tours at 11am and 1pm. We also have VIP Behind The Scenes tours that allow guests to have an up close experience with…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post! We are in full swing for the fall, pumpkins and all!

That’s right, while supplies last, if you purchase and redeem a Child’s Fall Combo ticket she or he will receive a free pumpkin to carve up for Halloween. Speaking of bats, we have some exciting news from the world of our straw coloured fruit bats. At first glance, the picture from this blog is probably quite unassuming. If you look…
