ZAMBI WILDLIFE RETREAT is truly a feast for the senses. Showcasing the beauty of the natural world, through the smells, sights and sounds of the animals. 

Zambi is both exclusive and unique, offering our visitors a sense of belonging.

The retreat is truly one of a kind, being the only resort style home for animals retired from the zoo, circus and entertainment industries. Zambi also cares for animals who have been misplaced, orphaned, injured and rescued from unloving homes.

Zambi is home to the big cats, lions and tigers, along with primates, native birds, dingoes, wolf dogs, reptiles, domestic and farm animals. With the help of our sponsors, donors and visitors, Zambi will continue to create amazing homes for animals from all walks of life. This will eventually give our visitors the opportunity to meet ALL the animals that we care for in the near future.

visit to the retreat will not only be an experience for you personally, but you will also be contributing to the care of the exisiting animals and those who will also be needing a safe and loving home in the very near future.

The ultimate experience awaits you at the retreat. Whether it be an intimate tour for two or a small corporate function in our African safari tent, we will do our best to tailor the experiences to suit your expectations. 

Zambi Wildlife Retreat is not open for walk-ins, as it is private and has been created for the animals. It is by appointment only and will open on weekends and public holidays only.
