Fun, unique experience. Most people have never seen buffalo before, so it is quite an experience. Friendly staff.

Too much money for the tour, $10.00 per person no matter the age, we were driven out into the field right into the herd of buffalo which made them move out of the way of the truck, sat in the truck listening to the guide brag about himself, (as the buffalo by this time had wandered off) his life history...

The $10 fee for the tour is well worth the money. You get a really up close view of the bison (not buffalo), and Dan, our tour guide, was very informative. The tour runs at least an hour, and it is pretty cool to be able to see these majestic animals from just a few feet away!

We drove over an hour out of our way to hit this place on our way home from vacation because of all the great reviews on here. Have to say... the tour wasn't so much of a tour as driving you out to the field and just sitting there. I expected more for the price. We drove out to the... More

It was interesting to see & learn all about the "Bison" (not Buffalo). They had 23 new calves & expect a total of 40 this year. Our excitement was when we tried to leave. Many of them were at the gate & we had to wait for backup to come so we could leave without any of the animals getting... More

I wasn't expecting such a large herd. Very cool place. There is a tour you can take but since we had 11 people with us the cost was a bit high so we didn't take it. Just walking the park was interesting and they have a gift shop. The people are obviously very knowledgeable about the herd.

Recently attended a Women's Leadership Training Seminar at the Buffalo Preserve. It's located in the Northeast corner of Indiana near Angola. Driving onto the property was a step into tranquility and openness. Stayed in a beautiful log cabin lodge owned and built by John who also served as our "personal chef". Enjoyed the very best in culinary delights everyday with... More

We were the only ones on the ride (it was almost closing time) into the Buffalo pasture. Our guide took time and answered ALL our questions. We then stopped in the café and had a Buffalo Burger, yummy!!

Our day at Wild Winds turned out to be a beautiful surprise. Not only was John, the owner, a wonderfully knowledgeable guide, he was also as kind and present as the bison we had the privilege of meeting. We had the opportunity to see a herd of over 200 majestic bison of all ages, including mothers with calves. These happy... More

My family and I visited after a friend suggested we look into the ranch. Everyone on the ranch was very friendly. The tour was exciting and informative. We learned a lot from our guide. There is a lot to learn and look at on the grounds. Tours are every hour on the hour. Be sure to call to find out... More
