It all started with one guy and one camel. The relationship between man and animal has always been a fascination for many, but a way of life for few. Needless to say, our animal family has grown to a whooping 500 in number.- Circle G Ranch is a 105-acre, 3 mile drive - thru exotic animal park with many adventures to choose from. Drive your own vehicle through the park or rent a jeep. All the animals will come right up to your car for an up close, personal experience. Our animals are extremely friendly and gentle. Feeding zebra, emus, deer, etc. is not something you can do at your regular zoo. We have over 500 exotic animals that includes 40 different species that coexist and roam freely together. Here, we encourage that you engage and touch our animals rather than stand behind fences and watch. Our Camel Safari is also extremely popular.
