To Blue Hills Ranch Giraffe & Animal Sanctuary



Welcome to Blue Hills Giraffe & Animal Sanctuary!  Blue Hills Ranch was named after the 150 acres of beautiful rolling hills covered in bluebonnets that bloom each spring. This is the forever home to many animals! Please treat each animal with love and understand that they are all wild animals.  We don't have any fences, so at any point you might see animals.  We want everyone to be safe at all costs.

The Rules

There are a couple big rules we have here, while you are on property, for yours and the animal's safety.

  1. Consider all animals wild.  Do not approach without one of our staff members. Your safety and that you enjoy your stay are our number 1 priority!

  2. Drive slowly and cautiously. Please remember you are entering a wild animal sanctuary and we have no fences that section off the cabins or road. 

  3. All guests must sign waiver to enter the property.

  4. Please don't run on the property, as it will scare the animals and we need you to be able to see your footing.

  5. Do not yell or make loud noises at the animals.

  6. This is a working ranch, so please watch your footing.  Concrete pathways are available and we recommend staying on them.  If you exit the pathways, please look out for hazards.  You are in the country now; we do have bugs and critters out here!

  7. Although we love animals dearly, we cannot allow outside animals on the property.

  8. Parking is in front of the barn.  Please park where the arrows point, on either side of the barrels.​

  9. No Smoking!!!

  10. No open flame. 

  11. Stay on the cabin side of the lake.
