RATED THE #1 OUTDOOR ACTIVITY IN LAKELAND, FLORIDA!

a drawing of a person

Our tour guide, was great! He was knowledgeable and funny. Awesome assortment of animals from antelope to zebra and many in between. We got to feed many of the animals which was interesting and fun. Great opportunity to take close up pictures of the animals. Our daughter also enjoyed feeding the lemurs. It's a fun way to spend a few hours!

a screen shot of an animal

The safari was exciting from the beginning to the end. We enjoyed feeding the camels the most. Seeing the ostrich and the huge eggs they lay was amazing. The cheetah was breathtaking. Although the water buffaloes were huge, they were quite gentle and easy to feed. Our tour guide Jan was very knowledgeable. I look forward to doing this again!

a close up of a sign

Our Safari ride was enjoyable and very informative. Our guide, Art, was extraordinarily knowledgeable about all of the animals we saw. My grand children and I really enjoyed being able to feed many of the animals. It was a wonderful experience and I am telling all of my friends that it is a wonderful place to take their grand children.

a close up of a building

We loved this tour. Definitely a hidden gem in central Florida. J.J was friendly and knowledgeable and my 90 year-old father-in-law was able to sit comfortably in the shaded open-air vehicle and enjoy every aspect of the tour. If you're able, feed the Lemurs! It's an optional add-on activity but lots of fun. Would recommend this place to anyone!

a drawing of a face

JJ, our guide, was so knowledgeable about the animals. We were able to feed many treats to the animals as we travelled along on the open air (but covered) safari bus, which was great for interacting and viewing the animals. It was our favorite part of our vacation! Would definitely come here again. Lots of fun for people of all ages.

Wild Florida: Drive Through the Wild (and Paint with Giraffes)!

Avatar photo

Calling all animal lovers! There’s an attraction in Orlando you may just want to add to your vacation itinerary: Wild Florida . This fantastic drive-thru safari allows you to travel alongside free-roaming herds of American bison, zebra, antelope, and more!

While the safari alone would be incredible enough, Wild Florida also boasts a Gator Park, animal shows, airboat tours, and – my favorite part – animal encounters. You can get to know amazing Florida natives as well as exotic species from around the world! With so many unique ways to meet and greet these critters, Wild Florida provides a full day of memorable fun.

From sloths to porcupines to ring-tailed lemurs, animal enthusiasts of all ages will find themselves enchanted by each creature as they journey through the wilds of this one-of-a-kind adventure!

Wild Florida Drive Thru Safari Park

Perhaps Wild Florida’s biggest claim to fame is its drive-thru safari. With over 150 animals (both exotic and native) roaming across an expansive 170 acres of land, you’ll have the chance to see giraffes, scimitar oryx, mouflon sheep, and more simply out and about, living their best lives.

Giraffe smiling.

It’s incredibly fun getting to see these animals in an unrestricted habitat – especially since that means they can come right up to your car! You can get closer to the wildebeest and deer here than you ever could in a traditional zoo .

We also love that for just $5.00, you can participate in giraffe feeding! Getting to hand-feed a giraffe is a heart-warming and unforgettable experience – as well as a trust exercise! Their size, when up close, can be pretty intimidating, but they, indeed, are gentle giants. The opportunity to experience their sweet (and hungry) nature firsthand is extraordinary.

When you come to the drive-thru safari, you simply drive your own car along the gravel trails and enjoy the sights!

Wild Florida tickets are $34 for adults and $24 for children. Florida residents receive discounted prices of $24 per adult and $19 per child. Reservations can be booked online through Wild Florida’s website! The safari is open from 9:00 am to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Gallivant Through the Gator Park

Included in the price of a Wild Florida safari admissions ticket is a visit to their Gator Park!

A large alligator resting near water.

The Gator Park is home to more than 200 native and exotic animals – not just gators (although, gators are stinkin’ rad ). More akin to a regular zoo, you can walk through the park and explore the different habitats of bobcats, lemurs, sloths, owls, and even an endangered Florida panther named Nala! Whether taking a stroll along the canopy-shaded boardwalk or feeding baby animals in the petting zoo, you’ll find many enjoyable moments throughout your self-guided stroll.

While in the Gator Park, be sure to catch one of the exotic animal shows (held at various times throughout the day), gator feedings, or a show with Crusher the gator!

Snap a “Slothie”

If it wasn’t obvious, Wild Florida is home to some real cuties! With that in mind and with the goal of creating lasting connections between animals and people, Wild Florida offers exclusive animal encounters!

Animal encounters may be booked in addition to admission, ranging from $20 to $230, depending on the experience and animal. One of the most popular encounters is meeting, petting, and taking selfies – aka “slothies” – with a two-toed sloth! (Or you can upgrade to the VIP sloth experience, where you get to hold the sloth, too!)

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Wild Florida (@wildfloridairboats)

An incredibly unique encounter is the giraffe painting experience. You’ll sit on the raised feeding platform – eye level with a giraffe – and work together to turn a blank canvas into a masterpiece! During this time, you’ll also be allowed to reward the giraffe’s artistic endeavors with giraffe feed and even pet your new friend!

Another once-in-a-lifetime encounter is “Dine with Crusher,” where you get to eat lunch with Crusher – a 1,000+ pound alligator – and his trainer. As you enjoy your meal, Crusher’s trainer will tell you all about this amazing gator, and you’ll get to feed Crusher, too!

Other encounters include meeting a ring-tailed lemur (I met one and thought its feet felt like gummy bears!), meeting a capybara, meeting a porcupine, feeding gators, training the albino gators Snowflake and Blizzard, or taking a VIP reptile tour!

When it comes to animal encounters, you really can’t go wrong because each one is bound to be unforgettable!

Hop Aboard an Airboat

Prefer traveling by water instead of land? Another adventure option is taking an airboat tour! Airboat tour admission begins at $35 for adults for a half-hour tour or $62 for an hour. (There are also private and nighttime tour options!) As with the drive-thru safari, admission to the Wild Florida Gator Park is included with these tickets! ( Reservations can be made online.)

Airboat in the Everglades.

Explore the headwaters of the Everglades and keep your eyes peeled for wild gators, ospreys, and eagles! Gliding through these waters is a true taste of being in the Florida wilderness.

Have a Wild Day!

While you can opt for a regular safari or airboat tour (plus Gator Park) ticket deal, the wildest animal fans might want to consider Wild Florida’s adventure packages.

The Half Day Adventure Package ($90) includes a one-hour airboat tour, the Gator Park, an animal encounter and family photo with Fluffy the alligator, gator feeding, as well as lunch for yourself from the Chomp House Grill.

Suppose you like to keep your feet firmly planted on terra firma. In that case, you might prefer the VIP safari experience ($175), which includes feeding Walter and Leroy the giraffes, an hour-long private tour of the safari, time in the Gator Park, a photo with Fluffy, gator feeding, and lunch from the Chomp House Grill.

Lastly, there’s the Ultimate Adventure Package ($245) which really includes the best of everything at Wild Florida! You’ll get FOUR wild animal encounters (including sloth, lemur, and porcupine), time in Gator Park, an airboat tour, AND a drive-thru safari tour!

Whether you choose to splurge on an adventure package or simply stick to basic admissions, animal lovers will definitely enjoy time spent at Wild Florida!! With integral connections to (and approval from) Florida conservation entities, you can also rest assured your visit is supporting an organization that genuinely cares for and helps animals.

Stay wild, friends!

Wild florida doubles drive-thru safari, adds more animals, expansion set to open to public june 14.

Landon McReynolds , Producer

KENANSVILLE, Fla. – Wild Florida’s drive-thru safari is about to get bigger and better.

The animal park in Osceola County announced Friday that it’s adding two additional miles to its drive-thru safari and adding some more animals to the experience.

“We’re thrilled to expand our drive-thru safari in more ways than one this summer,” said Sam Haught, co-owner of Wild Florida. “Not only will it be incredible to grow our existing herds and give them a more authentic environment they would normally have in the wild, but to also showcase this diversity of species to guests from the comfort of their own cars.”

Officials said the current 85-acre drive-thru Safari Park has expanded to a total of 170 acres.

When it opens to the public on June 14, the safari will be a total of 4 miles.

The Safari Park is home to a number of exotic animals, including herds of wildebeest, water buffalo, watusi cattle, eland antelope, brahman cattle, zebra, highlander cattle, camels, three ostrich and an all-white elk.

Wild Florida opened to the public in 2010 on Lake Cypress. Officials said it started off with a 14-acre Gator Park and airboat tours, and now its grown to include a number of experiences that educates individuals on various animal species and Central Florida’s natural resources.

Admission to Wild Florida’s Drive-thru Safari Park is $31 per adult and $22 per child.

Florida residents can get into the park for $22 per adult and $17 per child.

Safari Wilderness Ranch: Florida's Unique Animal Encounter

I ’ve been fortunate enough to visit many animal encounters, adventures, safaris, and zoos as part of my job. Still, none left me as spellbound as Safari Wilderness Ranch in Lakeland, Florida. This isn’t your typical animal attraction; it’s a remarkable blend of wilderness, adventure, and intimate animal encounters. 

Located about 20 minutes from Celebration and Orlando, Safari Wilderness Ranch provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe exotic animals up close, right here in the United States. Let’s dive into what makes this experience so unique.

A Ride Through Paradise

Unlike theme parks or traditional zoos, Safari Wilderness Ranch offers a ride-through attraction that immerses you in nature . Imagine boarding a safari vehicle equipped with stadium seating and shade canopies, then embarking on a journey through 260 acres of pristine wilderness. The absence of large crowds allows for a more personal and enriching experience.

Our guide, an expert in animal behavior and ecology, added layers of depth to our journey, making it educational as well as exhilarating.

Penelope the Pig and Her Friends

The adventure began at check-in, where we were greeted by Penelope the pig, the “hostess with the mostess.” She was accompanied by several outdoor cats and a pen of vocal little guinea pigs, setting a lighthearted tone right from the start.

Take a bathroom break before boarding the safari vehicle; the ride is bumpy and lasts around two hours, but every moment is worth it.

Up Close with Emus and Ostriches

Our first stop was with the emus, towering birds with inquisitive eyes who eagerly approached our vehicle. Driving further into the park felt like entering a makeshift Serengeti.

The warm Florida sun and the almost eerie silence, punctuated only by the hum of our vehicle and the occasional animal sound, transported us to a different realm. An ostrich, seemingly eager for the treats we had, came so close to our vehicle that it felt like it was about to climb in. 

If you’re apprehensive about feeding these majestic birds, don’t worry—your guide will show you the ropes. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can!

A Place to Stay Nearby: LEGOLAND Pirate Island Hotel

If you plan to extend your trip, consider staying at the uber-cool  LEGOLAND Pirate Island Hotel , just 40 minutes away. This family-friendly hotel is only 130 steps from the theme park entrance, making it a convenient and exciting option for travelers of all ages.

Warthogs and The Lion King Moments

Next up were the warthogs. These charming creatures came running to see us, tails wagging and eyes wide with curiosity. They seemed slightly disappointed when we didn’t have warthog-approved treats, but their antics brought back fond memories of “The Lion King.” 

Their expressive eyes and playful demeanor made them instant favorites.

A Global Animal Experience

We explored the property for the next 20 to 30 minutes and encountered various exotic animals, including Watusi cattle, eland, sitatunga from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and axis deer. Some animals approached us eagerly, while others preferred to observe from the shade of nearby trees. 

Our guide provided fascinating insights into each animal’s intelligence, traits, and global origins, enriching our experience.

Llamas and Water Buffalos

As we neared the llama enclosure, these friendly beggars rushed over for treats. Sharing their space were water buffalos, emerging from their refreshing pond for a snack. We fed the animals as quickly as possible, marveling at their gentle nature. 

The water buffalos were remarkably tame, allowing us to toss food pellets directly into their mouths and pet them. Despite their slobbery kisses, they quickly became our favorite animals of the day.

The Majestic Zebra and The Friendly Camels

The Grant’s zebra were beautiful and majestic, with a few babies playing around them. Seeing these animals reproduce naturally was heartening, indicating they are well-acclimated and content in their environment.

But the true stars of Safari Wilderness are the camels. With their single and double humps, these camels are the rulers of the ranch. They are insatiable, constantly seeking food and trying to eat our cameras!

Despite their voracious appetites, they enjoyed being petted and were clearly fans of the safari vehicles filled with curious visitors.

As our safari adventure ended, we exited the vehicle and entered the ring-tailed lemurs’ quarters. Around a dozen lemurs were perched in window cut-outs and on ledges, keeping a watchful eye on us. 

One lemur even had a baby riding on her back, an adorable sight that melted our hearts. Our guide instructed us to stand to one side of a structure where the lemurs would approach for their special treats—tiny bits of red grapes.

Lemurs are incredibly friendly and gentle. They grasp your hand with their velvety paws while eating, making the encounter both endearing and memorable. Handling this kind of animal encounter interaction with utmost care and attention is essential, as lemurs can only eat small amounts at a time.

They don’t like to be petted, but don’t worry—they won’t bite.

Unforgettable Memories

Safari Wilderness Ranch, in  Lakeland, Florida , offers an unparalleled experience that combines adventure, education, and conservation. The joy of learning about these animals and seeing them thrive in their naturalistic habitats is truly heartwarming. 

From the curious ostriches and friendly warthogs to the majestic zebras and voracious camels, every moment spent at Safari Wilderness is a testament to the wonders of the animal kingdom.

If you’re a travel enthusiast looking to explore the unique wildlife of Florida, Safari Wilderness Ranch should be at the top of your list. The firsthand encounters and the expert guidance make it an unforgettable adventure.

Pack your bags, gather your loved ones, and embark on a journey to Florida’s most unique animal encounter.
