We decided to stop here instead of the San Antonio Zoo based on the reviews and snake farm. The staff was friendly and put on two shows while we were there (Lemurs and gators). They were interactive with the crowd and very informative. You can...More

It was raining off and on which put a damper on some of our New Braunfels plans. We stopped here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. It was awesome! There were so many more animals than we expected: mountain lions, lemurs, goats, capybaras, birds,...More

We were traveling around the New Braunfels area and decided to stop, I definitely recommend. The stalls were very clean, staff were very friendly and the animals are well managed and maintained. Also price is very affordable!

We happened to pass by this place on the way south to San Antonio and decided to stop. The staff was excellent and there was an excellent assortment of animals, including white tigers, jaguars, hyenas, etc. It was well worth the $12.75 entry fee!

We had an enjoyable day along with our 5 year old grandson. The short programs featuring different animals were very informative and animal conservation is emphasized. He was very impressed with the bison and bats, two of his big interests this summer.

I would go,early in the day due to the Texas heat. Saturday days are busy too. You can take as long as you wish. We did spent 1 1/2 hours outside. Children loved the petting zoo.
