Walk-ups are welcome, but reservations recommended for tour times. Guided tours featuring animals from South America, Asia and Africa. Come face to face with more than 50 species of birds, mammals, and reptiles.
Because we recognize the key roles today’s youth play in tomorrow’s conservation efforts we offer deeply discounted admission to teachers, chaperones, and students of $10 per visitor – regardless of age. Homeschool families are able to take advantage of the same discounts, but need to organize in groups of at least 15 and arrive together at the scheduled time. Educational group tours include the guided safari tour as well as the walk-through. These reservations must be made online in advance. Petting zoo feed is provided at no additional cost to educational groups only.
Reunions, church groups, and two-legged herds of 20 or more are given a group discounted rate of $13 per person regardless of age. Petting barn feed, parakeet feed, and private animal encounters are additional. These groups must be book and paid for in advance online.
We are pleased to offer field trips Box Lunches prepared at the XA Bar and Grill and delivered upon your arrival. Take advantage of the ranch’s picnic ramada which seats approximately 50, or take your lunch to Ramsey Park.
Lunches can be tailored to meet gluten free and vegetarian needs. They are nut free, though they are prepared in kitchen that may have nut allergens present. The lunch includes choice of ham, turkey or cheese sandwich; choice of fruit or chips; choice of soda, juice or water. Lunches must be ordered five (5) days in advance and there are no refunds for surplus lunches (should there be fewer students on the day of your visit).
This is a rain or shine tour – plan accordingly. Sunscreen and a hat are recommended regardless of season. Wear comfortable, closed toe shoes. Paths are uneven and unpaved. Refunds may be requested 48 hours prior to scheduled tour.
We do not have food on site – only snacks, drinks and ice cream. However, there are several fantastic restaurants just minutes from the ranch.
We do not accept credit cards onsite – cash only.
