We had a blast at the Wildlife Ranch. My three year old loved getting to see the animals so up close and enjoyed getting out and walking to see the giraffes and also the petting zoo.

The wait was 2 hours to get in plus 2:30 hours to do the safari . Should have been there at 9 am they said. Just plan ahead .

Yes, we have had record visitation this spring break. The other 51 weeks of the year are not crowded like this one week. Even with all the other visitors, we hope y'all had a good time. More

We visited during Spring Break 2017. My first bit of advice is get there early! We did and didn't have too much of a wait, but when we left, and the next afternoon when we went to the nearby Natural Bridge Caverns, the line to get into the Wildlife Park was incredibly long. We saw many different kinds of animals... More

We went the Sunday the beginning of spring break . We got there at 930 and it was great by the time we left at 130pm there was a line over a mile long! The food was great, the animals were great and the staff was friendly. My 6 yr old niece had a blast.

I visit here every time I'm in San Antonio with my elderly grandmother and my kids! It's something everyone can enjoy! We love looking through the wildlife guide while we find the animals!

We are so blessed to be part of your family memories and fun experiences. The adventure guide book has great information and confirmation of family contests of 'name that animal' :) Thank you for your review. More

Had an awesome time on the trail! I'm completely terrified of zebras due to a visit to this place 12 years ago but I totally overcame my fear this time!! Can't wait to go again in a couple of weeks! Totally awesome!

It is not every day you get to "enter the cage". I was nervous after some reviews, but here is my take. You get 1 bag of food (veggie based feed pellet) per car with admission, but we bought 3 extras. I think we could have gotten away with only 1 extra as we had 2 bags left after we... More

My 13 and 10 year old boys had a great time. The watusi were really cool with their big horns. Many of the animals were docile and very friendly coming right up to the window. Based on other reviews, we rolled up our windows when an ostrich came over. He started pecking our car mirror. Take the route which is... More

Had not been here since i was a kid. Awesome zoo. Awesome feeding the animals but be careful with ostriches. They can be aggressive. Take a rental unless u dont care about getting minor scratches on vehicle. Animals do have horns. Highly recommended for people to see at least once but go early. Takes at least an hr to go... More

It was fun to see the animals up close, both on the drive and at the petting zoo and entrance area. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant food was very good too! We will definitely go back.
