Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch - Review
About 500 animals wander through the 400 acres of this mini safari park in three large pastures. While there are no big predators or elephants, the abundance of Zebra, Wildebeest, Gazelle, Buffalo, Emu, llama, Ostrich, Watusi Cattle, Aoudad, Fallow Deer, Gemsbok, Greater Kudu, Blue Bull, Nilgal Male, Scimitar Horned Oryx, Addax, Elk more than create the safari experience.
Of the minor activities, the first is the Walk-A-Bout, where you get to visit the 20 foot reticulated giraffes, see the Scarlet Macaw, the Amazon Parrot, and the Gibbon; visit the mote encircled Lemur Island enclosure, and Peacocks.
Wanna get even more up close and personal with the animals – the Petting Barnyard is your next destination where you can get affectionate with some llamas, Emus and African Pygmy Goats. Don’t miss out on getting souvenirs from the African Trading Post. The main attraction is of course the drive through that takes you over rolling hills and creeks while the rest of animals gaze at you and you wonder – exactly who is on display here?

Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, San Antonio Reviews
It was definitely a fun experience. Animals do try to stick their heads in your car which kids get a real kick out of. I second those that say go earlier. Lunch place was good with a lot of options. But... I didn’t give 5 stars because they charge PER PERSON in car but only give one bag of food even though you are paying for 5 people. REALLY? I have to pay per person but you only give us one in our car. And it’s a very small bag by the way. We bought 2 extra bags at 2.50 each. But doesn’t make sense AT ALL.
This place was so neat! We went 10 years ago and went for our 2nd time last week! It's amazing to see how much they have expanded over the years! Our kids loved it! There is an option to buy food to feed the animals. They loved this!! Some animals would walk right up to your car waiting to be fed, others were a bit more shy. I would recommend going before the heat is extreme so the animals are out for better viewing. We will definitely be going again next time we are in the area!
Wonderful experience and teaching moment! I loved the side stories along the path. Make sure you wear good walking shoes because the walk is at least 3/4 mile with ramps (some about a 45 degree angle with hand rails and stairs). We had three kids (11, 9, and 6) and they all really enjoyed the experience.
Nice visit. On a sunny day usually animals are in shade. But we saw quite a few near the drive way. Go slow and animals usually come near the vehicle. Do not waste the feed they give you on wild animals. They mostly feed grass and leaves. Save the feed for petting area towards the end and you can have full experience. Drive more than once if you want to see most animals. Take different route each time.
Went here while on a family road trip. Kids loved it. I liked it as well. I only have it two stars for one reason. 1) cost is fairly high, as it is not by the vehicle but rather by person. So, if you're with a family of four who has older kids, you'd be paying close to 100 bucks I think (believe adult price is 22 each). And you still only get one free bad of food. 2) there shouldn't definitely be people in there to keep the traffic moving at bottle necks. Took us way longer to do than expected because everyone wanted to feed the one animal that was talking from people's hands (which you're not supposed to do). Other than those two things, pretty cool. We went on a hot day and animals were lively enough. There's enough room for them to play and move, so they were doing that.
