Great experience and worth the slightly expensive price. You are free to drive through as many times as you'd like once you pay and are inside the park. I would recommend being there when the park opens. The animals are hungry and ready to eat so are more willing to interact with visitors! We arrived when the park opened at 9am and it took about an hour to drive through. We decided to drive through a second time but realized that after being fed for an hour many were not as interactive with us as they had been the first time around. One bag of food was more than enough for the two of us.

Husband and I went since I have never been to a drive-thru safari and it was really cool! We went on a Wednesday, so it wasn’t busy. Looked like they had just put out hay, so the animals weren’t super interested in us feeding them, but it was still neat! Wish we could have fed the giraffes, though.

Do not go here while they are keeping you from feeding the animals. If you cant feed the animals the animals have ZERO interest in you. Infact they are probably afraid of the cars . If you have food the animals put the food above their dislike for vehicles. In any case WE saw nothing except some deer and the giraffes at the opening of the park. DO NOT GO TO NATURAL BRIDGE SAFARI! ITs a complete rip off. IF they had any decency they would just shut it down until they are willing to allow you to feed the animals.

The Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch is a perfect adventure for young and old alike. You can go there, pay for your entrance, drive through the Wildlife Ranch, and go home without ever leaving your vehicle. The best thing is you don’t have to worry about COVID because you never have to leave your car. There are areas where you can stop and do a walkabout to see Giraffes and some smaller caged animals. The animals you will see Come from many continents and include those that are plentiful like the Wildebeest to the Scimitar Horned Oryx which is extinct in the wild. As you drive through the ranch at 5-miles an hour, there will be places you will have to stop because of animals on the road. Just relax and take in the sights. If you don’t look closely you could miss that animal in the trees. This is a don’t miss attraction.

My daughter just turned 3. We drove from north Austin. When we arrived they said they would not provide feed bags. We saw mostly deer. Most were laying down or sleeping. We did get to see a couple other neat animals from afar but it was truly not even exciting for a 3 year. And almost anything excites a 3 year old. We basically drove 1.5 hrs one way to eat a bowl of ice cream. Those ladies at shop were super nice, so that was good. Suggest that you post online and make it very clear that you will not provide feed and that the experience will not be as great as a result.

Response from WildlifeRanchTexas, Guest Relations Manager at Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch
Responded Aug 19, 2020
Hi, TXGAUCK. Thanks for making time to share your perspective with us. As you mention, we have had to withhold the feeding aspect of experiences out of caution for the protection of the animals. (For future visitors reading this, we ask you to visit our website for a full list of modifications we’ve set in place due to COVID-19, which we keep updated on an immediate basis.) In regard to your comments about the types of animals and their interaction, we hope you read your Adventure Guidebook, which offers insight about the four deer species who find a home at the Ranch: Axis, Barasingha, Fallow and Muntjac (pages 8 and 19). Barasingha is classified as vulnerable to endangerment in the wild. We are proud to offer a safe home-away-from-home for more than 700 animals from more than 40 exotic, native and threatened species; including four new species that have been added in the past 6 months. (Page 16 of the Guidebook offers a visual explanation for the types of species within same families.) Please keep in mind that your admission into the ranch includes a full day pass to both the Drive-Thru and the Walk-A-Bout area. We hope you took advantage of your day pass, making multiple trips through the Safari Drive-Thru, as each trip is truly a new and different experience. Again, thank you for making time to share about your experience, and thank you for visiting. Admission helps support our mission to provide a healthy and sound environment for the animals that call Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch home. We so appreciate your support, which helps us to continue our conservation efforts.
