It’s no secret we know a thing or two about alligators. To share this knowledge and passion with visitors, we're hosting our 4th Annual Gator Week June 8-13, and offering free admission to our Gator Park for the heroes of the COVID-19 crisis including first responders and essential workers.
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.
