Timbavati Wildlife Park – Into The Woodlands

By Timbavati Administrator Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog. It’s the middle of April but it’s been looking a lot like January with all of the snow that we’ve had this past week. April snow makes a May rose I guess ha ha ha. We’re just 12 days away from the Opening Day of our General Admission Season, that’s right April 27th is the big day. In our past few blogs we have been looking at the different areas of Timbavati Wildlife Park and this week we are looking at The Woodlands Area.

The Woodlands Area like every other area in the park is set in its own unique backdrop. The foliage in the Woodlands area is as green as they come lined with trees and beautiful pastures. You can get to this area by Safari Train Ride, strolling through the Grasslands Area or taking the bridge adjacent to the Big Cat Encounter.

Animals in the Woodlands Area are always subject to change, that’s how we keep things interesting for our returning guests. Family favorites that are usually hanging around in the Woodlands Area are animals like the African spur-thigh tortoise. It’s the third largest species of tortoise on the planet. This area is also home to our kangaroos, large flightless birds like our while emu and rheas. We also have a really healthy portion of antelope and alpaca to pal around with then you’re in this part of the park.

The Woodlands Area Offers Adventure!

Finally, from Memorial Day to Labor Day we offer camel rides weather permitting. When you get a chance to soak up the scenery hang out with a few animals that you’ll rarely see anywhere else. The Woodlands area offers adventure and a family friendly escape from the hustle and bustle of city living.

It’s still spring break for a lot of schools and you don’t have to wait for our General Admission season to start for you and your family to have an adventure at Timbavati Wildlife Park. All you have to do is catch one of our Encounter Tours. We have two tours that kick off at 11am and 1pm daily. Visit our website or the gift shop during those hours for more information! Cheers and we will talk with you all next week.
