So I go TN several times a year and I had never heard of this place! While bumming around on Pinterest for some money saving tips for our upcoming trip I see this place on a Mom's blog and her pictures were hysterical. I immediately decided we had to make this trip. I'm so glad we did. The animals are... More

These animals are a riot! We learned early on to not roll the windows down all the way or the animals will be in your lap! One llamas refused to move from the front of the van unless we fed him! Throw the food far for the horned animals or your car will get scratched. We took our 3 yr... More

This is the 2nd year we have gone on this safari. What a blast! The workers are very friendly and the animals are sweet. We were warned about the big black cow. She will stick her head in your window and gobble your food. Right on! This is what we live for. She slammed her head into my wife's lap... More

We were going to rent a car from them but it's not offered anymore so we drove mine through. There are several animals with horns so we threw the feed away from the vehicle so they wouldn't scratch it. We laughed so much and had so much fun when some of the animals stuck their heads though the windows right... More

this place is a little hidden gem...Where else can you go and have hand on experiences with water buffalo, zebras, deer, emu, mountain goats, and many more exotic animals? This place is amazing and guarantee laughter and smiles.

Really enjoyed the animals here, it was hilarious and we laughed incessantly. Unfortunately we went before they allowed you to pay to borrow a vehicle and I have quite the scrape down the side of my car from a bull's horns...I ordered special stuff from amazon to buff it out but didn't work. I haven't been back since b/c I... More

While visiting Knoxville we decided to take a short trip to Circle G Ranch. It was so much fun feeding and petting the animals! They were all so cute and gentle! Will definitely be back!

We bought a family pass to see the Ranch more often! When you first enter you can purchase food for the animals. It is $10 for 3 big containers of animal food. You can drive around the Ranch and hand feed, deer, zebras, cows, pigs, piglets, lamas, horses and ostriches. We all love this part....it is so hands on to... More

This safari ride is so much fun for kids and adults! If you love animals and close interaction this is definitely for you! Where else can you feed a zebra? We drove in our old van but if you have a nice car I would recommend taking their Safari tour. The driveway can get a little rough at times.....keep your... More

We weren't sure what to expect, but it was a great fun time. We couldn't stop laughing by all the animals coming up to your car. I recommend the drive through experience with feed. Kids enjoyed feeding the animals. Owners were polite.
