  • Not a zoo, so don't expect face painting for the kids. The elephants do paint but your face is not the canvas. Appointment is mandatory, again mandatory. Not near Disney, as a matter of fact it's near...  more »

  • Okay so I have personally been wanting to go here, and take my son here for a little while now. I initially saw an ad about this ranch maybe a year ago. So finally my family and I went yesterday during their elephant appreciation day. I love animals but I would never pay another dollar to go to this place ever again. It was $10 at the gate which wasn't bad but there wasn't much there. It was run down to me, there were maybe 5 elephants, two white tigers, a camel, two zebras, a tortoise, and a couple snakes. It was quite frankly the most boring ranch or zoo I've ever been to. We couldn't even keep my 4 year old son entertained. Then we were going to let him ride an elephant but not only did you have to wait til a certain time in the day to ride it, but they wanted $25 to ride the elephant. Now if it was anything like the pony ride they are only going to allow you to be up there for maybe a minute. But for $25!!?? I get that they use this money to care for them but that's ridiculous. Then it was an extra $5 on top of that if you wanted to just feed the elephant. Then if you wanted to take a picture with the elephant you not only had to pay another $25, but they made the people take the picture with their own camera, or camera phone!!! Like what kind of run down operation is that? What am I paying the $25 for? Just to sit on an elephants leg for half a second and take the picture with my own phone? Then the tigers were just in some run down trailer that was way too small for them to be in all day. You couldn't really get too excited about anything there. It was a waste of time and money especially considering we drove 45 minutes to come here. I would never go again nor would I recommend this place to anyone.
  • It's supposed to be an elephant sanctuary. Elephants aren't supposed to be money makers. They dress they're elephants up and allow people to ride them! Elephants get permanent damage from giving rides. 1) they're feet get all sorts of sores and damage and 2) elephants bodies aren't designed to hold weight on top of them. They're actually made to hold weight under them. So elephants bodies get all distorted for rides and have premature health problems. Everyone loves elephants but it's funny how no one is actually protecting them. People only think of them as cash cows.
  • Had no idea this place was here, Elephants by my house!! Awesome. Pretty big place too. Check it out.
  • Patricia and her family were fabulous! Reece was so into this tour and asking questions. Luke and Patty are definitely his favorite gentle giants!
  • I had a blast! I did the encounter and absolutely loved it. Meeting an elephant and interacting with one has been my dream for as long as I can remember. Two Tails Ranch made that dream come true, and I am forever grateful! The animals are really well cared for, almost as if the elephants are actually part of the family of the woman that runs it. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered any and all questions. I can't wait to go back!
