Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch in Pilot Point Texas
Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch offers you the opportunity to experience rare and endangered exotic wildlife in a unique and personal setting. Kids can learn about different species by seeing them up close and hands on!
Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ranch licensed and regulated by the USDA. The 126 acre educational park offers field trips, private tours and is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays and can be rented for large or small events. Open March through November. Advanced reservations are required for other dates.
This is a very nicely run small animal center. Great fun for kids probably 12 or younger. Not expensive so family friendly. The tram is fun and takes you out to the camels, draft horses, zebras and zebra mixes where you can pet them from the safety of the tram. Take the safari bus ride, and pet a camel.
There is a playground, bounce house, small petting area, Safari Tram, bucket train rides and some educational talks.
They have a great snack shack with good prices, as well as the quality food at the Bears Den restaurant.
It’s a perfect place for a play-date, play group, or just a family outing. Kids will be more engaged by having the up-close encounters, rather than looking from a distance at the animals. It’s definitely worth checking out.
Internships for teens are available. Visit them on Facebook for the latest news and events.
