  • We very much enjoyed going to Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. There is a drive through area where we saw lots of animals and got to feed them They give you a bag of "animal food" with admission. There ...  more »
  • We enjoyed a nice day of driving through the park. I wished though there had been more animals in the park. It took about an hour to drive it and it was relaxing.  more »

  • This drive-through wildlife exhibit was wonderful! There was a great variety of animals that you can pull to the side of the road to watch and feed. Some people even went through more than once to get the full experience. Then, once you finish the drive through you can get up close with some giraffes. My husband and I finished our trip to Natural Bridge Wildlife at their baby goat petting zoo. Those little guys were adorable! What a great time!
  • Great experience! We all enjoyed seeing the animals roaming freely, some so freely that they we're sticking their heads inside the window trying to get the food. Be aware though that the ostriches can be pretty jerky. I wouldn't suggest going into the park with a brand new car or a car you are super protective of because the ostriches will most likely peck the heck out of your vehicle. The little bugger was pecking the side of the car, the window and side mirrors. Nothing broke but just consider yourself warned. Aside from that it was all still very worth it, they even have a nice little goat petting area at the end of the ride.
  • I never made it all the way through because of car problems. What we did see was amazing. The staff was very helpful once we started having problem, got us a few tools we needed, escorted us back to the main area and helped is find a local mechanic. Beautiful place with at people.
  • Absolutely loved it! We came here several years ago and decided to come back. After reading some of the reviews regarding lack of interaction, we decided to come early. We were third in line when they opened the gate. Yes, it's a little pricey, but it was well worth it. We drove through 2 times and took both paths. Plenty of animals and plenty of interaction. Animals are like people, when it gets hot, they relax in the shade. You can't blame the park for their lack of interaction. Plan to go early and you will enjoy it. We will definitely be back!
  • My review 10 years ago would have been 10 stars out of 5 we brought our older son when he was seven or 8 years old. It was amazing we all loved it. So naturally we wanted to bring out 2 younger children to have that same awesome experience. WRONG!! Now it's over priced and over crowded. I know the place has no control over how many people show up but if you know people aren't going to have the same great experience why not lower the price or atleast tell them the animals are NOT eating the food so you might not want to buy 4 extra bags. There are many things that can be done to make an experience better or more fair. My kids did not get to see very many animals they were actually more excited about a bat on the ground when we stopped at the ice cream stop. I will say the food in the restaurant was really good and the gift shop did offer many things for good prices. My kids were happy with their stuffed animals. Food gets 4 stars gift shop gets 4 1/2 but everything else is just one sorry.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
