Be sure to get here as soon as they open, particularly in the summer months. I took my mother, who's 88 and can't walk very far, and she loved seeing the many types of exotic deer who come right up to the car. We also had a "Jurassic Park" experience when a Rhea (a large flightless bird) kept trying to... More

The place was clean. The animals were trained. My grandson enjoyed looking and naming the animals.With the entrance fee,a book with the names of the animals and food for the animals are included.The location was perfect .The animals were free to wander around.

Go early, before it gets too hot and the animals hide in the trees. Splurge on the animal guide, so you know what animal is poking its head in your car window.

the Cave is one of the absolute wonders of the Texas hill country. we went there in the mid 60's, took our kids there when they were old enough to appreciate it, and now took our grandkids, they really loved it. they have made the tour even better over the years by adding the wildlife ranch right next to it....

Unbelievable experience. The locals say go early in the morning before it gets hot so the animals are out and that was great advice! My husband and I had the best time and got great pictures and videos. Pro tip, the zebras and ostriches are bullies and the donkeys are adorable haha we would definitely go back!!

I was definitely pleased with my visit. They give you one free feed bag, which I believe is enough. One animal (not sure what it was) got so close it stuck it's head inside our car! and the zebras were from touching distance, that was great to take selfies.. love this place and planning on going back soon!!! oh and...
