Travelers can watch and feed safari animals from their cars if they make the drive to Glen Rose.

The 1,800 acres serve as home to about 1,100 animals, marketing director Warren Lewis said. Visitors can drive a 9.5-mile track and feed giraffes, he said.

Visitors can book tours, which allows questions to be asked and answered, he said.

“Book a tour now, rather than later,” he said. “You get to ride instead of drive, they provide the feed for the animals in the van and you get a tour guide.”

The reserve is home to 16 endangered species including white and black rhinos, cheetahs, ostriches, wildebeests, antelopes, zebras and wolves.

The wolves can only be seen on a tour, because they live in an intensive management area, Lewis said.

The main purpose of the wildlife center is placing animals back in their natural habitat, he said. The animals that call the center home are raised in flocks and herds and don’t live in cages.
