Time for Your Texan Safari Excursion!

If you're planning on visiting central Texas, you can be part of this amazing Safari adventure located 4 miles north of Johnson City on Hwy 281...easily accessible within a short (and beautiful!) drive of several booming cities in the Texas hill country (Austin and San Antonio).  

Once there, you'll begin your adventure through 137 sprawling wooded acres, where 700+ exotic animals (at last count) from 80 different species will invite you into their home!

But first, get ready to share this experience to the fullest by purchasing a bucket of feed, so that you can socialize and hand feed everything from American Bison, Scottish Highlanders, Bactrian two-hump Camels and the largest antelope in the world - Elands!  

Our professional tour guides will look forward to sharing amazing facts about some of our more unique 'personalities', as well as educational information about how our zoo extends and preserves their way of life by allowing them to thrive and multiply without the threats they would experience in the wild.

Your adventure doesn't stop there!  When you're done with the guided tour, be sure to stop in and have your own close-up encounters with more of the young babies in one of 5 separate petting zoo areas.  You can even extend your stay further and bring your own lunch to relax to enjoy a picnic meal under our large tree covered picnic area!
