  • My friend and I love all things animal, so we couldn't pass up the chance to go to a drive-thru zoo. Upon entry, you get a bag of food to feed the animals.....and the animals know it. They are waiting...  more »
  • Great ride thru the park and make sure you purchase plenty of food for the animals. You really should be there when they first open regardless of the time of the time of year you visit for two reasons...  more »
  • It is located quite a bit north of San Antonio to the west of I-35. Your admission includes a package of animal feed, parking, access to the safari route (by car) and the walkabout (by foot). The ranc...  more »

  • It seemed pretty steep for this excursion. Per person vs per vehicle? But since I wasn't paying...1 yr living in Texas and I finally saw some Longhorns! The giraffe enclosure is very nice, and I enjoyed the area to get out and walk around, visit the gift shop, cafe, see the monkeys. The ostriches were a hoot, and it was fun to see them get there heads right into your car. ( be warned they are kinda aggressive! ) I'm sure this is a great stop with kids. I appreciate that the animals are not enclosed as in a zoo. So maybe the price is worth it.
  • Great place! This place is way better than a normal zoo! You get to see the animals up close and you get to feed them. And the best thing is, you don’t have to be in the sun. The Emus are the best ones because they interact the most with people and get up close to the car. Sometimes you have to wait behind cars for a while but all is good. A wonderful place for any age.
  • I really enjoyed this place! Plenty of animals came right up to the car and we were able to feed. I wouldn’t bother going in the afternoon since the animals won’t be as active especially when it gets hotter out though you can go through as many times as you want . You do drive your own vehicle but the animals aren’t aggressive so there isn’t a need to worry about car damage or scratches. We were in a rental car so we were slightly concerned but the animals are very tame. I loved the petting zoo and the indoor restaurant was surprisingly good for being concession stand food.
  • You'll Love it at any age! Best in South Texas. Expensive food. Just treats and Ice cream. Logan to see, would be much more fun not during a holiday or spring break. The Animals are so full and are so sleepy they can barely walk. Very few will come to the car by after 1. Go on a regular weekend or week day.
  • It was a good experience especially having to drive by the animals in the ranch. Was so thrilled to take pictures and record videos. I think I would have loved it if the road signs leading to where there were different species of animals were bolder. It was kind of a guessing game for us.... We also saw some animals feeding from the hands of guests even after we read a sign that says that should not be done. I guess they didn't or were not able to easily read the signs too...
