Natural Bridge Caverns, San Antonio

#1 of 219 in Nature in Texas
Must see · Cave · Nature / Park
A natural limestone bridge leads into caves at Natural Bridge Caverns. The cavity houses the largest commercial caves in the United States--viewed as a living cave system because of the active growth of formations. Prior to opening to the public, the cave revealed evidence of ancient human remains dating back to 5,000 BCE. The caverns are part of a drive-through safari park, Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch.

  • We loved this tour. It was a great experience. Twisted Trails is also located there and I highly recommend it if you are not afraid of heights. We had a blast.  more »
  • Well worth the 15 minute drive from San Antonio. Lovely show cave, not excessively difficult to walk. Not too short, not too long. Our tour group was larger than I thought ideal, and even though I...  more »
  • The cavern tours are fantastic! Very knowledgeable tour guides. The Discovery Tour is the easier of the two tours, as it has a paved trail the whole way through. The Hidden Tour has a lot of stairs...  more »
  • It’s really very beautiful African safari. Love this Drive through safari in Texas style . So many exotic animals are there. I guess it’s around 6 miles drive through scenic drive with a close experience with more than 500 animals. It’s perfect fun and an educational adventure for families and everyone. It’s very clean and awesome. my kid loves the place very much. We enjoyed a lot.
  • Great place to see if your passing through on a San Antonio trip. Was very cool, impressive, and info informative. The heat was bearable, they do warn it gets very hot down there during the summer, the humidity under ground is around 95%, but for the experience it was worth it. They also have a huge human maze, zip line, and other activities for kids here.
  • Splendid place to explore! You will be amazed with all those interesting and fabulous formations. Very knowledgeable tour guides and they are eager to answer all your questions. Another cool thing is that walking among stalactites and stalagmites may make you remember some of Star Wars scenes. If you are a down to earth explorer they have multiple tour options that you would like to take. Don't forget to wear appropriate shoes and bringing a flashlight with you could be a good idea.
  • Beautiful caves! I did the Hidden Passages tour, and it was magical. The tour was quite short and a little drawn out, but since there is so much information to be shared, I hardly paid any mind. I’d really love to do the Adventure Tour, where you actually explore the caves in your gear (for an eye-watering $115). Anyway, it was really fun and I highly recommend going if you have not, because this cave is a truly a marvel.
  • Loved this place! Natural Bridge Caverns is awesome for a date day! Definitely recommend both tours. Will be back for lantern tour next time! Also, check out the drive through safari next door!! Wow, amazing way to end the day after the long walks in the caverns!
