We saw a Daytripper episode about the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch and knew that the kids would love it. It is about 1.5 hours south of Austin, just outside of San Antonio. Right inside the gates they have a petting zoo with goats. We gave Audrey and Jackson a brush and they went from goat to goat brushing their fur. After thoroughly washing everyone's hands and doing our best to get the goat poop off of our shoes, we loaded up in the car and drove through the safari. There were some amazing animals along the way. Some of the animals that we saw (and could identify) were ostriches, wildebeasts, emus, donkeys, a camel, zebras, rhinos, macaws, lemurs, giraffes, chickens, and a peacock. It was a fun trip, but I am glad that we did not wait until the heat of the summer. Just so you know, our car still smells like goat poop.
