For another wild experience, head to nearby Wilstem Ranch to see and interact with some of the exotic creatures that call this 1,100-acre ranch home. From alpacas to zebras, there’s more than six dozen different animals at Wilstem and unique encounters to choose from. Buddy up with the kangaroos in the “Roos and Crew” encounter, or give an elephant a bath when the African elephants return to Wilstem in mid-March.
Also, did you know Wilstem is the only place for hundreds of miles where you can see brown bears in a natural habitat? The newly opened grizzly encounter is a truly unique opportunity to watch bear brothers Bob and Screech wrestle, eat and play as they interact with their handler. Watch and read more about this one-of-a-kind grizzly experience.
