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

Although it's contrived, the interaction with the animals is very exciting (possibly more so than spotting them at a distance on an actual safari--as amazing as that would be). We visited on a cooler day in December and were worried that the animals would be hiding in the bush to keep warm. In fact, we learned that they come out... More

This is a great place for children and adults. We had everything from Ostrich to Watusi eating from our hands (literally) as we drove through this park. And the animals were all very gentle and just as interested in us as we were in them! Cost is 20.00 per person this includes a bag of food. You can buy extra... More

Cost for adults is about $20 each. That comes with one bag of food which will probably be enough if you pay attention to the cars ahead of you. What I mean is if the cars ahead of you have dropped food on the ground already the animals are not going to lift their heads to take any food from... More

Wonderful drive through the Texas hills with plenty of wild animals in an open range. They are free range and come to the cars to be fed with feed provided by the park. Speed limit is 5 mph and allows for a leisurely drive and frequent stops. Animals are well cared for and live in natural surroundings. Giraffe's, rhinos, zebras,... More

This is my first time to visit Texas. This place is really amazing. You can really close to those cute animals, and they are not dangerous. However, I think animals can be more.

This is a very well done safari. You get a free bag of feed to give all the animals. Most of them will come right up to the car and some (zebras and ostrich) will put their heads right in your window. BEWARE of the ostrich. She stuck her head right in my open window and plucked my full bag... More

We made the short trek out from San Antonio while in town recently and had a blast. It does seem a bit pricey but the memories genuinely are priceless our two girls ages 7 and 4 had an unforgettable time feeding the animals and seeing them in a natural habitat instead of zoo. Get an extra bag of feed and... More

Bring a towel and buy extra bags of food if it's cold. The zebras are hungry! The bags of food are only $2 and worth the experience when the zebras open their mouths for you to toss in food!

Underwhelmed. .. For the price we were very disappointed. $87 to drive thru the park, included one bag of animal feed. Had to buy additional food and guide book. For the price a guide book should be included. Animals consisted of mostly deer. Animals wouldn't eat food off the ground, they stuck their entire head in the car window to... More
