Pig Racing In Summer

By Chris Taylor Monday, June 18, 2018


Summer means a lot of things to a lot of people. Vacations, festivals, swimming and cook outs, we all have our feelings about what time time of year means. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of being in Timbavati Wildlife Park during the summer then you know that’s when we turn up the pig racing.


Plenty of puns about pork parade around our pig races. It’s a thing, and when I say it’s a thing I mean it’s a fun thing. Our announcers crank out a family friendly banjo driven joke filled session of laughs. It’s part of the general admission package.


This is just one of the cool things that we offer. You pay for a general admission but there are many extras when you get inside of the park. We alternate between pig racing and wildlife presentations. We have an animal nursery and multiple petting areas throughout the park.


As far as the pigs go, they’re a fleet footed handful of ham and eggers. You wouldn’t think that pigs could run that fast but lemme tell you guys something. Those little porkers have the pedal on the gas when they zip around the track. If you loved oreo cookies as much as they do you’d get around there quickly too. Check this week’s video out with our pig race quick facts!
