Our interactive, online series of teaching tools brings animals from around the world to life. Actively working with school districts to develop hands-on learning experiences, the teaching guide culminates with a field trip to the ranch; a learning adventure kids remember for a lifetime.
The perfect trip begins (or ends) at the Ranch. In the comfort of your tour bus, enjoy the calls of the wild, witnessing animals from around the world in their natural environment. Stretch your legs in the Walk-A-Bout, enjoy a meal at Safari Camp Grill.
Family reunions. Church groups. Dance troupes. We welcome them all. So, if you are planning a special trip, we invite you to take a walk on the wild side and experience a safari adventure, with Texas style.
All tours and programs are subject to availability and may change without notice. Please contact one of our Animal Specialist Education Coordinators for more information and to schedule your next adventurous group tour.

Wild adventures await you on this Safari Trek through 450 acres of the Texas Hill Country. From the comfort of your own vehicle or bus, photograph, feed and get up-close-and-personal with over 50 different animal species from around the world. If you come on a bus, one of our animal specialists may be available to step on-board to identify the animals and fill you full of interesting animal facts that are age appropriate and will enhance your tour. A great addition to your Adventurous Safari Trek is our Interactive Program. This program, lead by an animal specialist, allows you to get hands-on interaction, touching, holding and investigating horns, antler, eggs, feathers and more.
The unique classroom setting in our Longneck Learning Center allows animals, like the giraffes, to join your class if they are feeling up to it (Note: Animal behavior is unpredictable, and some days giraffes are not up to being social). Each presentation is geared to the appropriate grade level, with topics such as Similarities/Difference, Adaptations, Habitats and Taxonomy.
