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.

  • I took hidden passage walk, which was rather short. I was a bit surprised by the full electricity and concrete in all the place ☹ But the staff was very nice and helpful let me leave my bag there and....  more »
  • We went on the combo tour which included the hidden passage general tour. We were amazed with the pristine condition of the stalactites and the straws that were in the hidden passage. We applaud...  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!
