We’re Still Open

By Chris Taylor Monday, September 11, 2017

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. Summer has wound down and we’re all back into our fall flow at this point. I know we technically don’t change over until about the 21st of September, but let’s face it a labor day barbecue pretty much seals the deal for the end of summer.

The same way those changes impact the rest of everyday life, they impact Timbavati Wildlife Park as well. I’m sure you’re wondering how, and that’s what we’re talking about today. Firstly, the foliage in the park all begins to change to the beautiful colors of autumn. You know the classic “Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” color schemes we all grew up watching and loving.

Staying Open In Fall is Beautiful

There’s a change in the park. With the vacation season over and traffic in the Dells slowing down sans the weekend warriors. Timbavati Wildlife back has a little less bustle and a bit more tranquility attached to it. There are still people of course but the park feels a lot more like just you and the animals looking at each other, a lot. I mean believe me, they’re watching you when you show up.

Then of course the fall really changes the animal’s behavior. It’s an instinct thing primarily. In the summer months, animals typically are less active to burn less energy. They’re conserving body fats and what not so that they don’t have to exert as much energy hunting and foraging.

Well when you get into the cooler months they become much more active to build up their natural reserves for the winter months. They want to bulk up and usually are more frisky as the weather cools in the fall.

When you’re looking for family activities or a school field trip, consider us an option because we’re open as long as the weather permits!
