We sell the last tickets one hour before closing. We reserve the right to close for bad weather. Any closings will be posted on our website and social media. Our animals wear thick fur coats and don't mind staying out in the cold or the rain (in fact, some of them really like a good, natural bath). Therefore, if in doubt, check our website, then plan your visit for your comfort.
Refunds will not be issued for bad weather.
You may not see all of our animals in one visit. And that's okay, because we put a high priority on a more natural environment for the animals. So take it slow, enjoy the sights, keep it safe, and know that each visit will be just as new and exciting as the first! That's why we call it a natural wildlife experience.
Our cabins are the perfect get-away location. Sit outside and watch the stars, gather with friends and family around the fire-pit, or snuggle in with a cup of coffee and a good book. We have daily and weekly rates available.
Buena Vista means “beautiful view.” We hope you can find time to linger in the comfort of your own RV and soak in the beautiful Hill Country scenery. We have daily and monthly rates available.
Our family has farmed, ranched, and owned shops in this area since before the Civil War. We always met at Great Granny’s house for holidays. Seeing how much our children enjoyed and being with family and in nature inspired us to open our wildlife ranch to you. We hope you can use our Event Center to gather with friends and family in a refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
