Let us tell you more

It is our mission to provide a natural and safe experience for both our animals and the people who visit them. We have designed our facility to allow our animals to live in the most authentic, cage-free environment possible, with high-quality but non-intrusive care and interactions. We strive to give every person who entered our gates a natural wildlife experience, encouraging them to expand their minds and restore their souls through nature.

We invite you to visit Buena Vista Wildlife Safari located in Evant, the Crossroads of Texas! Evant is centrally located at the junction of Highways 281 and 84. We are an hour from Waco, 1½ hours from Austin, and 2 hours from DFW. Once a thriving farming community, Evant had slowly dwindled to a pass-through town between Hamilton and Lampasas. But now, with the involvement of the entire community, Evant is becoming a full family destination.

In Evant, you can stop, shop and stay with a purpose. After you spend time with the animals, take a short drive downtown and visit locally owned stores featuring art, woodwork, boutiques, antiques, home goods, baked goods, and more. Come visit area wineries, catch the local rodeo or attend the Pearl Bluegrass Jam and Stage Show. Whatever you choose to do, we know you’ll love Evant & The Buena Vista Wildlife Safari.
