Disclosure: I did not receive compensation for this post. We did purchase discount tickets at Groupon.  All opinions are strictly my own. My family has been to Circle G Ranch twice and have loved it both times.

If you are heading to the Smoky Mountains for your next family trip and are looking for something a little different from the standard attractions, you should check out the Circle G Ranch in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee.

Circle G Ranch is a drive-thru safari with loads of awesome animals. There are camel’s, yak’s, water buffalo, zebra’s, llama’s, emu’s, various deer, goats, and even more inside the barn petting area. You drive through with your windows down and at your own pace. Sometimes, it’s more like the animals pace as they like to make traffic jams at various parts of the safari. This makes for some hilarious adventures as you try to toss food to get them to move. As I mentioned, you drive through with your windows down. This allows the animals to come right up to your car, where you can carefully pet them and toss food to them.

We often find discounted tickets online at Groupon. You can only use one page of tickets per visit so be sure that if you do purchase through Groupon, you purchase all your tickets together and print them on one ticket page. That way you can use all your discounted tickets in one visit. When you hand your tickets to the ticket taker, or if you are purchasing tickets there, you can also purchase 3 buckets of feed for $10. The feed is made up of fairly large pellets that you toss out your windows to the animals.

Sometimes, though, they will stick their head in your car and right into the buckets! The llamas, emu’s and zebra’s are the worst when it comes to invading your personal space. They really like to hog the feed! So you are constantly trying to get their head out of your face. It is so funny and your kids will crack up the entire time. 😀

Have a peak at our video that we took on our last visit to the Circle G Ranch. You can see how the llama’s team up on you. One will run in front of your car to make you stop while the others run up beside you to get fed.

And the emu’s? Yeah, they like to totally photo bomb your picture taking.

It might sound like Circle G Ranch is more of a bother than fun but it totally isn’t. The animals are sweet and friendly. Your family will love driving though and seeing all the different wildlife. And I can pretty much guarantee you will laugh more than you’ve ever laughed before. It really is a ton of fun!

Circle G Ranch is open all year long. Because animals need more hay and feed in the winter, they encourage you to come even in the winter months!
