A New Look At The Safari Train Ride of Timbavati Wildlife Park

By Timbavati Administrator Monday, July 16, 2018

Hello all and welcome to this week’s blog post. This week we’re going to take a new look at the Safari Train Ride at Timbavati Wildlife Park. Before we get into that though, did you know that this week is National Zookeeper Week? That’s right, when you’re strolling through the grounds at our park feel free to tell anyone on staff thank you for the hard work that they do. We appreciate their hard work and effort just as much as you do.


Now onto today’s topic, the Safari Train Ride. When Timbavati Wildlife Park first moved into our new home, there was a go kart track behind the train ride. We took out the track and placed a beautiful pasture up front where you’re able to admire and feed animals.


Where The Train Takes You


When the train takes off and you look to your right there is the beautiful grasslands area where you will find some of our grazing animals. The train then takes you to a picturesque view of the pasture that holds our ostriches, wildebeests and zebras. From there you’ll  pass into a larger pasture for a chance to feed a few antelope and perhaps a large flightless bird or two.


You leave that pasture and take a left at the kangaroos and tortoises and blam! You’re right at the giraffe and camel feeding encounter. This is of course, exactly where you want to be. Feeding a giraffe is definitely a life experience. It’s something you have to do at least once.


You’ll take a quick pass by the cat house and be dropped back off by the gift shop. That’s the train ride, if you’d like to see the penguins, lions, tigers, birds, snakes, monkeys, owls, sloths, badgers… I think you get my point here, then you want the general admission. I promise you this is a very wild time! Check the video out and visit our website for more information.
