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

This was our first trip to the Ranch, even though we've passed the signs for years on the way to San Antonio. My kids had a blast feeding the animals right from the car! Beware of the ostriches, which are really aggressive. We watched one snatch the food bag out of the hands of the person in the car ahead... More

Great experience for young children and adults. I say "and" because I wouldn't do this without children...but everyone had a great time. Even though it rained for half of the trip, the animals were still next to the roads collecting food pellets. We did not see any zebras; however, had a giant deer-like creature enter the passenger side window to... More

We visited on a Saturday a little after lunchtime. NOTE: The iPhone maps app sent us the wrong direction - into the middle of nowhere. We realized it finally and passed several others obviously looking for the ranch as we backtracked (we stopped and let them know it was the wrong way). The ranch is on the main Natural Bridges...

We visited with 4 kids (16,13,6,4)! Everyone was entertained! The kids really liked being able to feed the animals! My youngest two didn't like the petting zoo but that's because we're city folks!!! All in all it was a great experience!
