Spent a cold and damp day here in early March and my wife and I enjoyed ourselves. Staff was very pleasant and very informative. We spent the betterpart of the afternoon and believe we saw all there was. Can see how it would take a lot longer when the weather was nice and more people were out and about. We... More

On a rather cold blustery day in January, my husband and I wondered if visiting the Wildlife Ranch was a good idea. But it was too cold to walk on the Riverwalk so we took a chance. We could tell when we arrived that this would be a very busy place in the summer. There were several paved lanes heading... More

Barbara~ We are so appreciative for you taking the time to share your awesome experience. And, so pleased that your experience was one that we love to create, a Wildly Adventurous life long memory! Most of the time, less than favorable weather is more of a hindrance to us than for the animals as they live right among nature's elements.... More

An outstanding up close experience - at one point we had 4 bison surrounding our car while two Watusi approached from the back and Fallow and Barashinga waited their turn to be fed by us. Operators said no matter what the weather, the animals come to you!

We went to celebrate a friends birthday and she had an amazing time. It was nice to know that she loved it and had an awesome day. I would recommend to go early and plan for the day. We made a brief stop at the Alamo and arrived around 10 am. We didn't leave till around 4 pm.

We loaded up the van, grabbed some feed, and enjoyed all the wildlife. The buffalo came right up to our car, the Longhorn walked beside us for a long while, the deer just about ate out of your hand(not ours but we watched others do it), and the Ostrich led the tour through the Kenyan part of the zoo. There... More

If you have a child that loves animals, then this is the experience for you. The animals are abundant and well taken care of. Lots of zebras, giraffes, deer of several variants, ostriches, emus, sheep, goats, and several other exotics that I have no clue what they are. Our little one was laughing and smiling the entire ride. There are... More

This is a drive through wildlife experience. You stay in your car while driving through an African wildlife reserve. You are given a bag of food to feed the animals. It is recommended to drop the food on the road but many animals come right up to the car and will put their head right in and eat out of... More

Had a great time visiting the animal exhibits and then driving through the various habitats. Well cared for animals, in aesthetic environments, show a diversity of animals in their free range habitats. We will be taking the grandkids again!!

Took my daughter on a cold Saturday morning. It was our first visit and I was not expecting a lot. We hand fed zebras from our car windows! We saw zebras, buffalo, camels, a rhino lots of giraffes, and an assortment of other animals. It was much more than I expected it to be. Buy a few extra bags of... More

The animals really do stick their heads in the car, especially the zebras. I thought the zebras were a tiny bit intimidating, they really stuck their entire huge head in the car trying to get ahold of the bag of food. I have to admit, just like most people there, we didn't obey the rules and fed the animals by... More
