This is a wildlife sanctuary. It's not fancy and if it's been raining, prepare to get muddy. They do have stations with hand sanitizing gel, but you feel dirty still. They sell bags of feed for $3 to feed the animals. Beware of the petting zoo area, the goats will steal your whole bag of food! Overall, it's a good... More

This is an excellent way to spend an afternoon, learning about animals and petting them. It was fun to feed the animals and while the place initially seems small, we spent 4 hours here. The tram is great because you get to see zebras, horses, pigs, and camels. There are also kangaroos, wallabys, donkeys, a miniature cow, goats, lemurs, capuchin... More

I bought a Groupon for Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch! Our group consisted of 4 adults ranging in age from 58-62. We always go with an open mind and really take in every bit of everything we visit. It was marvelously, educational and entertaining. We had a great time, and now we all recommend it to everyone we see. It is a... More

My family loves this place! The exhibits are great, our favorite is the safari ride and the camel selfies! There are great picnic facilities there as well, we took advantage of that the last time. I liked that the tables are covered and close to the parking lot. I'm trying to convince my kids' teachers to go here for the... More

Easy to access, not very crowded when we got there on a Sunday around 11 am. Everyone was friendly and you get to touch and feed the animals.

I visited Sharkarosa with my friend and her 2 young children when I visited Texas recently. We ended up spending about 4 hours there which for a 4 and 6 yr old was plenty of time. We enjoyed the informative animal demonstrations and particular enjoyed the tram ride - the kids loved it. The pizza looked amazing and it's great... More

I went last week with my husband and my daughter using a Groupon. I had such a good time , and it way passed my expectations. It's not as polished as a zoo in the city, but it is sweet countryside supposed to be. The tram ride was absolutly the best activity. Please remember to buy some feed, because the... More

We've been going here for a few years. Lately, though, they are hard into raising money and prices, making this less of a value.

There are a lot of animals for the kids to see. There is a petting zoo. Also, there is a tram tour, led by a tractor (fun for the little ones) that's bumpily takes you back to see some of the wildlife like camels, zebras, horses and pigs. There is usually a Groupon deal you can use to get a... More
