It is not every day you get to "enter the cage". I was nervous after some reviews, but here is my take. You get 1 bag of food (veggie based feed pellet) per car with admission, but we bought 3 extras. I think we could have gotten away with only 1 extra as we had 2 bags left after we... More

My 13 and 10 year old boys had a great time. The watusi were really cool with their big horns. Many of the animals were docile and very friendly coming right up to the window. Based on other reviews, we rolled up our windows when an ostrich came over. He started pecking our car mirror. Take the route which is... More

Had not been here since i was a kid. Awesome zoo. Awesome feeding the animals but be careful with ostriches. They can be aggressive. Take a rental unless u dont care about getting minor scratches on vehicle. Animals do have horns. Highly recommended for people to see at least once but go early. Takes at least an hr to go... More

It was fun to see the animals up close, both on the drive and at the petting zoo and entrance area. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant food was very good too! We will definitely go back.

Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch features many species including: giraffe, deer, zebra, rhino, ostritch, emu, and more. The animals are kept in habitats that allow them to roam within their parks. The drivers can drive through the habitats at about 5mph and toss food supplied by the front office to them. With each vehicle they get one bag of food and... More

The wildlife ranch was a highlight of our 7 days in Texas, as we absolutely loved the exotic animals who came right up to our car to be fed and/or pet. Wildebeests, zebras, gazelles, ostriches, emus, longhorns, etc. It's an incredible experience to be so close to wildlife, and it's also readily apparent that the animals are well treated and...

Beautiful place a bit expensive 22.00 dollars a person but the animals come right up to your car and eat out of your hand. We enjoyed ages 1 to 48 my grandson was amazed

I thought this sounded really interesting and I am glad that I did it. We saw antelope, zebras, buffalo, etc. They give you some feed for the animals which was fun and got the animals to come over to your car. They also had a petting zoo for young children. I would have loved this as a kid. It does... More

Unfortunately due to high water areas, 50 acres was closed off when we went but the park did discount tickets. Also, they offer veteran and AAA discounts. We arrived by about 9:15 and had an AWESOME experience seeing the animals, one even put his head right into the car window! There were only about 4-5 cars that early and it... More

Kind of expensive, but the wildlife come right up to the car. Bison, Longhorns, Wildebeasts, Ostriches and many others are just outside your windows. If you love animals, this is a great way to see them.
