“See the animals from your car!”
There are more than 50 species of wildlife on the ranch. The central Texas Climate is well suited to animal survival as several of the ranch's animals have been returned to their native lands. Although our animals are wild, they may be seen from the safety of your car. Don't forget to bring your camera when you come visit us which we hope will be soon.
This place was lots of fun! We have a 10yr old and 2yr old who really enjoyed it. The animals seemed fairly nice and calm except for the ostrich :)
This place was absolutely amazing and I seriously encourage everyone to go at least once.
First of all, it's only eleven dollars and you get to spend as much time as you want in the petting zoo (only goats, is that bad?) and driving through the safari area. All the animals, whether in cages or in the main safari area look well fell and happy. All the animals clearly get plenty of social interaction and seem to genuinely like the visitors. As soon as you pull up to any group of animals, they will instantly come up to your window and give you puppy dog eyes until you feed them treats.
WARNING definitely be selective about when you keep your window up or down. All the deer and reindeer are really calm and it's ok to keep your window down the entire time you interact with them. However DEFINITELY keep your window up around ostriches as they are evil and unpredictable (which is also pretty exciting). Some of the larger animals (elk, cows, other horned deer-ish things) clearly feel very comfortable around people and will not hesitate to stuff their head into your car and steal your food or bit your fingers.
Overall, it was a great experience. Very inexpensive, cool animals, and the environment felt like it was good for the visitors and the animals. This would be a great place to visit more than once because every visit would be completely different.
