The Last Pig Races and Camel Rides Of The Season

By Timbavati Administrator Monday, August 19, 2019

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. Summer has been awesome and the milder temperatures are nice and comfortable. Whilst we bask in the glow of the August son I have to give everyone an advanced warning that summer is coming to a close. Now we’re open all year round but after Labor Day 2019 we will no longer offer Camel Rides or Swine Time Pig Racing for the remainder of the year.

Fret not good people as you still have two full weeks of riding and racing. Some of you reading this have never seen a pig race. Did you know that pigs can run at speeds of up to 11 Miles Per hour. Now humans can run at speeds of up to 28 miles per hour, but we can’t take a corner at 11 mph much less top speed. Trust me on this I have the bruises to prove it LOL. 

Last Call For Pig Races And Camel Rides

The Swine Time Pig Races are a family favorite that takes place at our very own Porker Park. These swift swine are set on an oval of agility in a race to recover the vaunted Oreo Cookie! These races come packed with a ton of funny pig puns presented by our professional animal handling staff. Bring the whole family and watch them squeal around the oval while you still have time this year.

Camel Rides will also be coming to an end for the year this Labor Day. If you haven’t visited our Camel Rides in the woodlands area yet, what are you waiting for? Did you know that camels are the oldest form of transportation? You can also find camels living comfortably all over the world. In some remote locations it’s still the only way to move people and goods. Those are just a few of the cool camel facts that you can learn when you take a ride on a ship of the desert. Our staff love asking questions about the camels.

We only get to take a few precious moments in time and make them memories. These shared experiences last a lifetime in the minds of both the young and the young at heart. Stop in to Timbavati Wildlife Park today, we have an adventure waiting for you. Take a look at this week’s video for more on camel rides and pig racing. Make sure you follow our pages to receive info on specials and contests. We will announce the winners of the “Name The Baby Spider Monkey Contest” this week. Thanks and we’ll see you in the park.
