My family had a great time driving through the safari. The camels were the most entertaining because one stuck his head in the car and took the whole treat bag from the middle console. The whole experience was fun and exciting. We didn't know what animal would be so bold as the camels were. We laughed all the way home.

Must see! So much fun! Don’t miss this opportunity to see animals as you drive thru their habitat. The animals are friendly and come up the the cars for feed so don’t forget to purchase your feed bags when you pay to get in. Deers, zebras, camels, llamas, ostrich, goats and many more! Take your cameras and prepare to have a blast! We laughed the entire way thru.

Decided to check out wildlife drive as we have heard it was fin. Nice long drive through park with numerous goats deer zebras and other hoofed animals. You are allowed to feed them along the drive. Entertaining and fun for all ages. Petting zoo a pick hit for kids. Some caged animals which unfortunately need better areas to be kept. Overall a good place for families

I was surprised to see that there was little variety in animals. Lots of deer like animals, a good amount of birds, and several zebras. I paid about $40 for two adults & 4 bags of food. Super disappointing, Gift shop was bare bones, and contained animal themed gifts, of animals they don't even have. Would have been better off drying to the Cameron Park Zoo, in Waco.

Some of the rare animals you want see that much. We saw about 4 zebras and boars, that was the highlights. Did not see a tiger or peacock. The 2 kangaroos are locked up. Its decent for what it is out in the country I guess.this was a first for me, next time I will probably try one of the fancier zoo playgrounds either I will appreciate this one more or not. Thank you.

Note: no one follow the rules and its a slow dump of cars.

This was the best thing to do with the grandkids since moving to Texas 10 years ago! Bought 10 bags of animal feed and used them all! Laughed so much and screamed when the emus came to the car! Fell in love with the zebra that put his head in my window and ate out of my hand! Loved the camel and it’s big curious head! Soo many animals! Keep your windows down.. the animals are very tame! Don’t miss the walk around zoo portion. Very reasonable price for the 2 plus hours we spent. Will definitely come back!

I enjoyed every moment! The animals come running to the vehicle both sides waiting to be fed. Try not to feed them by hand!! They're right there to take the feed out of your hand before you can toss it out.! Family agree, save a few bags for close to the end( after seeing Zebras) to feed others. There's a 3rd 'watering hole with a buffalo taking a dip at end. Truly a wonderful adventure for even my teen grandsons!

A fun safari-like huge ranch with camels, ostriches, zebras, buffalos, caws, emus, goats, kangaroos, peacocks and many more. The animals were very interactive and a joy to feed (make sure to purchase at least 10 bags of feeding food at the entrance, lol). In this place you will not feel bad for the animals, all zoos should be this way. Highly recommended for a family visit. An excellent experience for the money. Our family had a great time driving through this zoo.

Skeptical about taking my teenaged sons here, but we wanted a quick get-a-way and COVID-19 limited our travel. They absolutely loved it. Feeding all the animals was a great way to pass the time! We'll be back!

I have to say I was very excited to discover they had something like this so close. It was a last minute thing my husband and I decided to do. We hopped in the car out the directions in the GPS drove over an hour, ended up on a dirt road in the middle of no where. I call to ask the people where they were and they claim we must have went the wrong direction and gave me some directions. After following her directions I don't see anything she mentioned. I then call again and speak to a man who tells me to follow 580 E for 17 miles and I will see signs for what I believe he said was "rumblee" TX.. Never saw a single sign for anything and ended up back to the beginning. Waste of my day and gas!

We're very sorry that you were unable to find us but we do have it listed on our website not to use GPS because it will get you lost. If you are coming from ft. Hood/ Killeen area here are some directions that will get you to us next time Take 190 W toward Copperas Cove When you get into Copperas Cove turn right on Ave D (the light next to the CVS) Go up three more lights and make a right on 1st street Make a left on Ave B (the next light after turning on 1st) Follow Ave B until it ends at the stop sign, which is the junction for FM 580 Make a left on 580 go 150 ft and make a right on CR 118 Again we apologize that you were unable to visit us, we hope this helps you in the future.
