Overall I would say it was a great experience when I went. A lot of the smaller animals would come to the car to get fed but the larger animals typically kept their distance. I would recommend going during the weekdays so it isn't as jam packed with cars all waiting to use up their bags of food.

Loved that the animals had so much space and yet the way the road is laid out we get up close views and some interaction. Well planned and it looked like very healthy and happy animals.

Truly enjoyed walking thru the smallish caged animal area and listening to the lemur noises. The giraffes were great. Then the drive thru was wonderful except for some rude fellow visitors honking horn and tailgating. Slow down, we are all here to watch animals. Very nice visit but watch fingers, ostrich peked daughters finger on window sill.

It's better to go to Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch during Weekday, there're not too much people in weekday. We went there on Tuesday, the weather is great, and a lot animals walk around us, it's really funny, you can feed them. Great Experience!

This wildlife ranch is a safari-style drive-thru where animals roam freely and you get to see them from the car. You drive your own car. The variety of animals they have is large and there are some beautiful species, from giraffes to kangaroos. They gave us some animal feed that we could use to attract them, but the animals don't...

Had a great time visiting the safari. Majority of animals able to roam freely. They were more active and accessible early in the day, later in the day many animals appeared to be further from the road. Feeding them was a bonus as well. Although they state drop the food, many animals only wanted to be hand fed. The attraction... More

I took my two year old through the safari today, and it was great! Even though it was pretty chilly for South Texas, the animals were up and ready to eat. They are friendly and have no problem eating out of your hand. In addition to the drive through safari, they have other hands on areas too, we just didn't... More

The wildlife ranch was a great adventure. The animals were friendly and came right up close to the car. However, despite the signs advising people not to feed animals from their hands, many people fed the animals with their hands resulting in some of the animals sticking their heads into the windows and becoming a bit aggressive with the food....

My family and I have been here a few times and we love it! You drive through the park in your vehicle and if you purchase bags of feed at the entrance gate you can even feed the animals from your vehicle. The zebras are usually more than glad to come up to your outstretched hand to get some food.... More

We arrived when they first opened, best time to see the animals active. We were there 3 - 4 hours. Actually drove the safari loop twice. Mingled with zebras, buffalo, giraffes, and so many other amazing animals! One bag of food is free with admission, I recommend you buy an extra one....the zebras love it!
