You can even climb aboard a camel, one of the park's other four-legged residents, and take part in a guided ride.

  • The better half and I visited back in January. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The owners are very knowledgeable about the animals they have. We enjoyed the brief classroom session. We were able to pet and feed camels, others and various other animals. The guided tour of the other animals was extremely cool. Seeing and feeding the giraffes during this part was a lot of fun. We were able to experience new things during our visit. I truly think younger kids would enjoy themselves here.
  • Not wanting to sit in traffic and wait in lines at Disney we discovered this fantastic ranch. Caring, funny, and informative guides made the experience fantastic. More than any zoo this ranch gives you the chance to see well kept and happy animals to interact with. Great experience and fantastic animals!
  • Feeding the otters was awesome. The giraffes come right to the car. The guides were great. If you near Disney, take a day to see this place.
  • Took a bus from The Villages to Giraffe Ranch. The owner who has 40 year experience with zoo and animals takes you on the tour. Very informative, fun and interactive with the animals. You can tell that the animals enjoy the experience as much as you do.
  • Had a great day...loved feeding the lemurs, riding the called, and seeing all the amazing animals!
