about texas safari ranch


Texas Safari Ranch is a world-class facility located outside of the town of Clifton, just forty miles from Waco, ninety miles from the DFW Airport, and minutes from great restaurants.

The ranch is full of history. It has been in operation since 1975, making it the oldest wildlife park in Texas. The original log cabin, in which the original settlers lived in and fought Comanche Indians out of, was built in 1850 and is still on the property. 2 barns built in 1870 are also located on the ranch. Today, the ranch is run by 6th and 7th generation Texans.

Texas Safari Ranch is capable of facilitating unforgettable parties, family reunions, and weddings for your next corporate or private event. Whether it be the picturesque Western Town, or the wildlife roaming before your very eyes, guests are sure to be amazed! 

Kick off your boots and stay a while! Book your stay at one of our luxurious cabins. If you're lucky, you'll be woken by Marsha, our sweet and mischievous camel!

Our Philosophy

Texas Safari Ranch is home to over 600 exotics, from antelope to zebra. We pride ourselves in being home to a number of Pere David's Deer and Scimitar Oryx, which are entirely extinct in the wild.

As a breeding ranch, we strive to expand the population of endangered animals. Our mission is to maintain the wellbeing of each and every animal in our care. All proceeds from our cabin rentals go towards feed and veterinary care.

You can drive around the ranch to freely interact with the animals. There are 10 miles of paved roads for your use. Please note that while our animals are friendly, they are still wild so treat them as such.
