I'll start by saying we're not from TX. Although there are regular zoos, we don't have any drive-through animal preserves where we're from. The opportunity to see and feed the animals "up close" was both exciting and a bit concerning, as we were in a...More

It's $22 to get it and it's not worth $22. The bulk of what you see is different "deer" type of animals: ewes, elk, caribou, etc. We saw a few zebras. A couple of ostriches, bison and longhorns but no giraffes, rhinos or llamas. Idk,...More

We were the second car into the ranch and every single animal was ready to enjoy the food we scattered for them. We drove thru a second time and most of the critters were happily napping.

My friend and I love all things animal, so we couldn't pass up the chance to go to a drive-thru zoo. Upon entry, you get a bag of food to feed the animals.....and the animals know it. They are waiting for you to drive past...More

Great ride thru the park and make sure you purchase plenty of food for the animals. You really should be there when they first open regardless of the time of the time of year you visit for two reasons. 1.) It gets really hot in...More

It is located quite a bit north of San Antonio to the west of I-35. Your admission includes a package of animal feed, parking, access to the safari route (by car) and the walkabout (by foot). The ranch has a wide variety of animals from...More

I was skeptical about going here just from the price alone. I arrived on a Friday around noon with no wait to get in. Once we were in the ranch there was an abundance of animals to look at and feed. I'm a 35 year...More

This was an amazing place to visit. My wife and I took 2 trip through the park. Be aware that animals are curious, and used to humans. They will come right up to your car, or even stick their head in (ostriches). I highly recommend...More
