Loved the Animals

We've never been to a wildlife ranch before. It was so much fun feeding the animals out of the car. Some of the animals walk right up to your car!

Very well maintained and the experience was truly fun for all of us. We saw all of the animals, took our time, and have lots of photos of amazing animals you can't see often up close. My kids enjoyed feeding the animals and watching them eat, play and run around. Some of the animals weren't interested in our food by... More

I had to drop a colleague off at the airport before heading back to Boerne and I'm so glad I stopped by the Wildlife Ranch. I got there right as they opened and was the second car in the ranch for the day. Almost all the animals were out and it as amazing! I saw lot of different animals I... More

The drive thru zoo was great. Many have stated you don't see a lot of critters. that was not the case in our visit. We drove through twice (you can go as many times as you want) and saw different critters on each drive. Since they move a lot we saw some on the first time that we did not... More

If you've been to one of these, then this won't be anything new. If you've never been to one, then you will absolutely love it. Of course you are dealing with animals so there is no guarantee of your experience. Some folks stop for way too long at a particular animal and hold up dozens of cars. This is annoying... More

We really enjoyed visiting the Wildlife Ranch. People complained about it being expensive or not having animals approach the car. It may have been a little expensive, but we felt it was worth the money. We had rode bikes the day before and were really tired, so it was really relaxing to be able to drive through and see all...

Overall I would say it was a great experience when I went. A lot of the smaller animals would come to the car to get fed but the larger animals typically kept their distance. I would recommend going during the weekdays so it isn't as jam packed with cars all waiting to use up their bags of food.

Loved that the animals had so much space and yet the way the road is laid out we get up close views and some interaction. Well planned and it looked like very healthy and happy animals.

Truly enjoyed walking thru the smallish caged animal area and listening to the lemur noises. The giraffes were great. Then the drive thru was wonderful except for some rude fellow visitors honking horn and tailgating. Slow down, we are all here to watch animals. Very nice visit but watch fingers, ostrich peked daughters finger on window sill.

It's better to go to Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch during Weekday, there're not too much people in weekday. We went there on Tuesday, the weather is great, and a lot animals walk around us, it's really funny, you can feed them. Great Experience!
