We had an excellent time. Our tour driver was Don. He was a very good teacher, and was very nice. It's a great place to see animals in there habitat. Something in our own backyard I didn't even know about.

We stayed at Nomad Ridge (different from The Lodge at The Wilds) in a Yurt. It was awesome! Includes breakfast and dinner which was nothing exceptional but good. Also an open air tour. Tour was great but next time I would upgrade so we could feed the animals. The yurts are spacious and welcoming. 7, 8 and 9 are steep...

The wilds are very nice for a day or two if you go on a weekday. The menu could be larger and more choices. The compt dinner and breakfast were just ok. The accommodations were just ok too. I didn't think the utes were all that special. However the rarity of the animal that you get to see kind of...

We just had our family reunion at the Lodge at the Wilds. It was awesome!!! Getting to the lodge was an adventure in itself. We had to take some backroads to get to it. There was some concern of how we would locate the lodge, but a Wilds staff person led our caravan of cars to the Lodge which was...

My mother and I stayed in the Grand Yurt on Nomad Ridge at The Wilds to celebrate a milestone birthday. THE YURT - Quiet, luxurious and comfortable. This yurt has a large observation deck with 2 adirondack chairs and a very nice hammock. As you enter the yurt through glass french doors you will see a king bed in the...

We used the Lodge for a 3-day sales training retreat for 9 people -- and we could not possibly have been happier. The staff escorted our group members to the lodge, which is an adventure in itself. We brought in food for 3 dinners, 3 lunches, 3 breakfasts and snacks all day -- and there was PLENTY of space in...

It was lovely but you must remember it's still camping. Glamour camping is nice. They have AC, heat, and windows. Bring your own drinks because there really isn't much for you to buy or snack on. However, it was lovely. Just remember no kids allowed.

The Wilds is a 10,000 acre animal sanctuary populated by endangered or extinct-in-the-wild animals, mostly grazers. There are many ways to experience it but I took the open-bus safari then stayed overnight at Nomad Ridge in a yurt - a circular tent that was one of the most unforgettable lodgings I have ever had in my travels. The food was...

My husband and I stayed in one of the Premium Yurts on a Monday night. Check in was easy and the grounds are well maintained. The yurts are a short walk from the cafe/gift shop, and there is an area for Nomad Ridge guests to gather in the evening and overlook the reserve and watch the animals. There is also...

This review was rated as average solely based on value for the money. The Wilds itself was terrific, well maintained. They feed the animals which appear to stay by the main roads. And the animals seemed pretty tame to be in the "wild". You are guaranteed a close up of many of the animals. However, at $300+ per night was...

“Mind the location of the yurt, the lower ones get you closer to the animals but require you to climb steps to reach them.”

“The grand yurt is larger than the standard yurts and set off by itself. The other 9 yurts are in fairly close proximity to each other. It is worth the extra money to stay in the grand yurt.”
