For the past seven years, our mission at Wild Florida has been to provide an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation. Starting with our airboat ride adventures, we quickly expanded our Gator and Wildlife Park, adding on ranch buggy tours, and bringing guests even closer with some of our animals by providing interactive animal encounters. Despite the efforts of the best planners, there's bound to be a few things you weren't able to do when you visited us for the first time.

Have you stepped outside lately? Anyone who's anyone in Florida, especially the natives, knows that late-winter-to-early-spring is the best time of year for getting outside and enjoying the weather.
