We have been to the area several times in summer, but never gone to the wildlife ranch due to the heat. This Fall we went and it was a fun family trip! The kids loved feeding the animals- buy the extra bag! The book allows you to identify the animals, too- but is an additional $3 charge. Worth it! Beware... More

We took our grandchildren, 3, 5 and 7 to see the animals. They loved the experience of having gazelles, antelopes, bison and zebra come right up to the car for the food they gave us. Our 3 year old even had a bongo surprise her by sticking her head in the car window and giving our granddaughter a lick. That... More

I read a lot of good reviews and we took the tour.. The main attraction for us was to be able to feed the animals which isnt allowed in many other safaris. There were very few animals when we went. Mostly deers. Have been to much better safari's

Went to see the animals. Significant traffic in the park as people could pay attention to the signs and stay to the right if they wanted to stop. The friendliest animals were the goats, deer, and rams. Many weren't hungry so they didn't approach the vehicles. Probably better with kids than as a couple.

My family loves this place, and we make sure to visit them at least once every year! The variety of animals is excellent, and it is so much fun being able to feed them and interact with them. One of the things that keeps us coming back, though is definitely the exceptional staff this place has. I have to say... More

Natural Bridge Wildlife Farm is located right next to Natural Bridge Caverns outside San Antonio. It is a drive-thru safari style attraction that covers over 400 acres and has over 500 animals from 40 animal species. We arrived late (after 5:00 pm) and expected to drive right through with a few animals to be seen. Boy, was I WRONG! I... More

This is a certainly worth every penny. You drive through the park, and get to feed the animals and many of them come right up to the car. Watch out for the ostrich's and zebras! Beautiful well maintained park. I highly recommend going in the cooler parts of the year, they are less crowded and the animals are more active... More

I took my two grand daughters ages 8 and 10. We went in mid October and the temperature that morning were in the low 80s. We saw SO MANY interesting animals up close to the road. I had downloaded "animal bingo" sheets from the website before we went, and the girls saw every animal on the sheets. Then they took... More

If you want to get up close and personal with the animals this is the place to do it. We had to wait several times for animals to cross the road. Children would love to be this close to the animals. Some of them put their heads in the car looking for more food.

My sister-in-law insisted that we visit this "drive-through-safari" which to me sounded like the lamest thing that i could imagine. The admission was really expensive. But when we got in, it was immediately clear that my sister-in-law was right. this place is incredible. So many large animals coming right up to the windows!!! I've never been to anything like this!
