An Orlando airboat ride through the Florida Everglades is definitely one of the best ways to get up close and personal with Florida wildlife, but we can't let you forget about all of the animals in our Gator Park. Many animals that call the Gator Park home come from countries all over the world, but some of them are rescued right here in Central Florida. Floridians are typically familiar with most Gator Park animals, but there is always something to learn when visiting Wild Florida. If you can't wait until your next adventure to learn some more about the animals, dive deep into these six.
Our airboat tours are what bring thousands of tourists and locals alike to our attraction. But there’s more to our adventures than what you’ll experience out in the open water. Inside our Gator Park, there are more than 200 exotic and native animals you can see. However, in the effort of promoting conservation, we also offer hands-on educational animal interactions with certain animal ambassadors. On the blog, we’re highlighting the six animal encounters you can experience while visiting Wild Florida, that you and your family are sure to love!
You may have heard of Crusher, our celebrity North American alligator, or Guy, the selfie-loving two-toed sloth, but what about Watson the watusi or our new reticulated giraffe? After exploring your wild side on the waters of Lake Cypress during an airboat tour, buckle up for our wildest ride yet. Our Drive-thru Safari Park will take you from the swamps of Florida to continents around the world in just a one-hour tour.
