  • Great place! A bit pricey but it's worth it for everything you get to see. All the animals get up close and are out in natural habitats. They all seemed happy and healthy. I loved that they went into depth talking about each animal. Overall great place. Make sure to bring a camera because there's lots of chances for some really good pictures.
  • Simply an amazing experience. My family had a truly phenomenal time here. The owners are knowledgeable and clearly care about every creature on their property. We took the camel safari, fed the lemurs & giraffes, and spent time with the rhino, but cannot pick a single favorite thing... everything was incredible Highly recommended for guests of all ages (our group ranged from 9 to 70 years old). We cannot wait to return.
  • My husband and I visited the Giraffe Ranch on Saturday. We had a great time. The owners very nice and knowledgeable. They have a very hard job there and do a great job at it. My daughter in law and son got the reservations for us for mothers and father's day. We will go back.. Thank you...
  • What an adventure right in our own state! The owner is friendly and knowledgeable . She gave us so much info on everything we were seeing. We splurged for the segway tour which was a little steep but what the heck, Yolo!
  • Loved this place. Took the camel ride tour and was able to ride all around the park to see all the animals.
