If you don't give this place a 5 star rating, you wouldn't know a good time if it bit your behind.

Where do we even start? Can we say this place is about as close as you can get to a drive through the jungle in Kenya? What an amazing place, so go before more people learn about it and it gets crowded. You self drive your vehicle at your own pace through hundreds of acres of natural terrain and stop... More

This is great Family Fun. They offer Military discounts. Make sure you get an extra bag of food. At the very end of the day, it is less crowded. We were so glad we made a second pass at the end of the day. We practically had the place to ourselves.

Went to the Wildlife Ranch on the way from Austin to San Antonio. Well worth the time. Reasonable admission and you receive one bag of food to use to feed the animals. You can purchase additional bags if necessary. We did, but only needed the first bag. We saw tons of wildlife and even had long horn bulls walk right... More

I've taken young grandchildren three times to this attraction close to San Antonio, and each time it has been a big hit. The kids love to feed the animals from the car! I've only been in cooler months, so it was delightful and the animals seemed more interested in eating and moving around. Good entertainment for all ages.

We were super excited about visiting and experiencing the drive through Safari but it was horrible. We didn't get much animal interaction. They were all lifeless and sleeping. We exited with the same amount of feed that we entered with. It was extremely too expensive and we didn't get to see anything worth seeing. I was just not impressed and... More

This was a lot of fun for our two grandkids, ages 6 and 7. Be sure to bring your cameras. You can buy food to give the animals, though we bought too much -- 1-2 bags should be enough. Sometimes it is a bit frustrating when the cars ahead won't move over to allow others to pass. There is also... More

We came here recently on a Sunday morning . We arrived about 10 min before they opened and there was about 6 cars already there. I found we could go at our own pace when it is not packed. (When we were leaving at around 10:30 the line to get In was about 20 cars deep) The animals choose if... More

The drive thru the park is interesting and self paced. There are areas where you can stop to take pictures and there is a petting area. We also really enjoyed the picnic area. If you're going tot he caverns add this onto your to-do.

The 450 acees of ranch is underscriable. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. My favorite part of the ranch was the Kenyan Preserve. If you have children they will enjoy the petting barnyard. This attraction is for kids of all ages.
