I suppose I was a little disappointed. We didn't see many animals. We saw plenty of "deer" kinds of animals (deer, gazelle, etc.). We did more driving around that anything else. We saw 4 giraffe, we didn't see any zebras. We saw a few ostriches. It was VERY HOT when we visited and the LONG LINE getting to the front... More

I LOVE this place! It is so much fun to get up close to the animals. The animals are so friendly too! Try to go when in the morning when it is cooler.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. It was $40 for 2 adults; but you get free feed and it's about 2 1/2 hrs to drive through. Then there's the walkabout. I loved that the animals actually stuck their faces in our car window. That was cool. I suggest that you go early and be there no later than... More

Had a great time went in the morning when I feel was the best time because more animals were out before it got hot. Took lots of great pictures, which will be a great reminder of the fun time we had.

We really enjoyed all the animals and how close some of them came to the car. It was a great little drive and not too far between the congregations of animals. There's a petting zoo and gift shop, but we never left the joyous air conditioning of our car and had a great time.

Our 7 yr old granddaughter was smiling and laughing every minute even when she was on the floorboard of the car hiding from the ostriches! The adults had just as much fun. Our daughter was slimmed by a smelly zebra who then walked in front of the car and wouldn't move(I think we offended by laughing so hard) Come early... More

My husband and I have visited the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch twice, once in May while the kids were in school and once in July during high season. Our visit in May was AMAZING! we practically had the place to ourselves. We got close up experiences with multiple animals. However in July it was extremely crowded! People would drive ahead... More

My mother (the actual owner of this account) grew up in SW Texas and has been to most of the common destinations there like the water parks, the amusement parks, etc. She knows that I am an avid animal lover, so we decided to change things up a little bit by going to Natural Bridge for a day with my...

Be sure to go in the morning to see the animals . We went by 10:30 and there were lots of animals outside. You can drive around the park in your own car. The park provides you with a bag of feed for free with the entrance fee. My son had a great time seeing the animals so close and... More

I came to Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch as a kid and as an animal lover, I wanted to revisit these memories. I made a trip over there while staying nearby. The ranch is a great place to visit and interact with the animals, including a petting zoo area for more close-up interaction. However, I wish they offered some sort of... More
