My toddler loved seeing the animals come near the car. She shrieked "I want to feed it!" anytime we saw something new. The animals were very docile and there was a big variety of horned, gazelle-like animals. I would recommend buying an extra bag of food so you don't run out. There was a traffic jam near the zebras, but... More

I think we paid a bit too much for this trip. The park is a wildlife ranch, not a theme park. The lines were incredible long and there was no direction in controlling traffic. I think they should update signs as well. We were stuck in there for 3+ hours and thankful we had enough gas...

My husband and I were in San Antonio in March and we were looking for different things to do. We love nature and animals. We went to the San Antonio Zoo and it was a nice experience but nothing spectacular. When I saw the listing for this ranch in San Antonio attractions and the brochures I thought this would be...

Had a great time with the family today. We got their early (around 9:40am) and I would highly recommend you do the same! Each car got a free bag of feed, but you can buy additional for a small fee ($2 maybe?). There were tons of animals out and you can tell that some are very used to getting treats... More

Be sure to pay the extra $2 for a bag of food for the animals and don't be surprised if they try and take the whole bag from you like they tried with my wife lol. Kind of pricy, be sure to look for coupons.

The wildlife ranch is filled with amazing animals to drive through and see and get out and walk through the petting area. Every year they seem to expand and add amazing things to see. Start early in the morning to avoid crowds. After the animals head to Natural Bridge Caverns and take the tour or climb the Zip line.

The animals come right up to your car and children will enjoy it. Nice place to spend part of your day. Drive thru with your car.

Our family really enjoyed our personal car safari through the park. Lots of animals near or even on the road. My daughter and and I got some great photo shots. They also have a mini zoo where we were able to walk around and see other animals. Very enjoyable family attraction.
