Great fun for children that love animals. Goats, ostriches, donkeys, rabbits, ducks and many kinds of birds. You can feed them , pet them, and some of the birds will actually sit on your arm, head or shoulder while you feed them. If u go Saturday u can go on a truck ride to "fish" for ostriches. A pole with... More

After reading the reviews, I thought it would be a perfect outing for us and the grandkids -- ages 6, 9, 11. I didn't anticipate my husband and I having so much fun too -- not just watching the kids, but enjoying feeding the animals too! There was a wide variety of animals and plenty of each kind.

This is the most fun you can have in the desert for $25. Animal interaction (feeding); miniature donkeys, small deer, goats (that eat everything), ducks, parakeets, ostriches (that eat your hat and yes they bite; yet have no teeth); bunnies, cockatiels that drink nectar, sting rays that eat calamari. OMG and the monster truck ride that will blow your mind... More

If you are going from Phoenix to Tucson or vice versa, the Ostrich ranch is a great way to take a little driving break. The staff is fantastic and the animals are quite a treat to see up close and in person. Be careful because the ostrich will bite! ;)

This was so much fun! The animals are hysterical and sweet. The staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable . They tell me it is crazy busy on the weekends, but we went on a Thursday morning and found it to be pleasant. Don't miss it. The price is affordable.

This is one of those rare places where every review is glowing and everyone wants to come back. It is also nice to see an animal attraction given credit for their care of the animals instead of a bunch of animal rights people protesting. How long would a free range duck, bunny,or lorakeet last in the desert? I thought it... More

I am so glad you and your family enjoyed visiting our critters! Lots of people think they have to have a kid to hide behind to come here but as you pointed out it really is an all age adventure. All ages seem to turn into kids however as they work their way through the place and forget the worries... More

This was the best road side attraction I've been to. Such an unexpected gem. Us 2 grown adults had more fun than the kids that were there. The Lorikeets are so fun, one just stayed on my head during this exhibit (no bird poop either) lol. A MUST SEE for all ages.

This was our second trip to the Ostrich Ranch and it was just as fun as the first time. They have expanded the entrance and gift shop, as well as added a string ray attraction. This place is fun as a side trip from Tucson or Phoenix or as a stop on your way to either city. It's reasonably priced,... More

About 2-4 times a year I stop at the Ranch to see the animals. These people truly love their jobs and the ranch. They have made each time I've come, a wonderful experience for me and my son. I enjoy bring my young son down to feed the animals, ride in the monster truck and see the ranch. He loves... More
