The Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch offers a very unique experience because it's a wildlife safari that you are able to drive through without leaving the comfort of your vehicle. When you purchase your ticket, you are given food to feed the animals. They come up to your vehicle for the food, but feed with caution. Visitors are warned to keep hands inside the vehicle’s windows. We found the emus to be the most aggressive. The photo opportunities are abundant as there are no fences or bars to worry about getting in your way. Daily admission information is Adults 12 and over are $22.00, Seniors (65 and over) are $20.00, Children 3-11 are $13.50, Military/Policemen/Firefighters are $18.00. Children under 3 are free. (See discount coupon below.) Another nearby attraction (just next door) is the Natural Bridge Caverns...an easy do on the same day as the Wildlife Park.
