I had actually never heard of this place until I found a groupon for it. My sister and her family were coming to visit during Memorial Day weekend so I bought a groupon for us to go. We were glad we did. The safari tram was the best part. You take a bus basically that is open on the sides... More

My family and I tried to go during the week in the summer! Guess what it is CLOSED!!! You can only go on the weekend. We had driven with my parents from NM and our kids because it is SUMMER!! Best time to be open. They only allow for daycare kids to see the animals during the week. HUGE Disappointment!!

My family and I had a great time at Sharkarosa. It is a little smaller than I expected, but we have never been able to get that up close and personal with the animals. My 7 year old daughter had a blast. The pizza restaurant was great! And the bear sitting at the picnic table was such a site to... More

We got a Groupon to come here for my 34th birthday. We were looking for something fun we could do with our two year olds, and since we all love animals we decided to give this a shot. What a great experience! They have lemurs, camels, monkeys,snakes, deer, kangaroos, sloths, goats, pigs, a capybara, bears, zebras, and even a moose,which... More

Thanks to Groupon we found out about this little gem! Cute little petting zoo, a few enclosed area to see monkeys & Kangaroos. Then to the tram, for a safari ride, yes the animal's do come right up! The hardest part is waiting in line for the ride, kids got restless, so I'd advise doing that first. The area to... More

We decided to try this out for the first time on a groupon. We really enjoyed seeing all the animals and riding on the zebra tram too. My kids especially loved seeing the baby animals and the hybrid animals. The presentations on various animals were both interesting and interactive. Although I would most certainly recommend visiting here, I can't recommend... More

We bought a groupon to this location thinking it couldn't be that bad for a short day trip with the kids, WRONG! So we showed up and ate pizza at the Bears Den after hearing it was yummy.....it was not, should have eaten at home first. No Biggie! We then went to board the tram (the only real attraction at...

It's amazing how you can live in a place for a long while and somehow not discover some of the wonderful attractions in the area. Such was our reaction after a recent visit to Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch! Since all of us live in such a fast-paced, digital time, this was an opportunity to take it slow, re-learn, and exclaim: "Wow!".... More

I got a groupon for this and was really not sure what to expect. We went on the most perfect day weather wise. This is a great place to bring young children. There are several rare animals here and it really was a fun day even for 2 young at heart 50+ year olds. Admission price seemed to include everything... More

We enjoyed all the presentations and such great animals. So many are on the endangered list and we have never had the opportunity to see them up and personal. Our 11 year daughter and grandparents all enjoyed. A place for all ages.
