Planning Your Visit

To make the most of your trip, the best times to visit are either right at opening or closer to closing times. That way, you can skip that mid-day heat and see the safari animals when they're most likely to come out from the shade. Some animals are also more active at different times of the day, making each safari drive unique!

Arriving at the Drive-Thru Safari Park

Just a short drive from Orlando’s biggest attractions, Wild Florida’s Drive-Thru Safari transports you to a breathtaking terrain. Rolling into 170 acres of untouched landscapes, you'll find it hard to believe you're still in the same state. 

The entrance is clearly marked, and friendly staff will provide you with your group's ticket wristbands. You’ll also receive a pamphlet of what animals you might see on your wild encounter. Once you’re set, you can drive on through the gate to your safari adventure.

What Safari Animals Will I See?

Wild Florida boasts a stunning collection of wildlife featuring over 150 native and exotic animals from various corners of the globe. You’ll see North American fauna like elk, white-tailed deer, and American bison. Be sure to look around the water edges, where you might spot alligators basking in the sun.

But the surprises don’t stop there. Driving around transports you to an African safari, where you can spot stunning safari animals, including zebras, ostriches, giraffes, and more. 

Each safari offers a unique animal encounter experience. Sometimes, you'll enjoy lazy gazes from the wildlife. Other times, you might run into a traffic jam from curious creatures approaching your car. Remember to keep your windows up and drive slowly to truly appreciate those wildlife views. 

How Long is Wild Florida Drive-Thru Safari?

The Drive-Thru Safari is designed to be a leisurely experience, typically taking up to an hour and a half to complete. But it all depends on your pace! Visitors have the option of choosing the shorter path that takes about 30 to 45 minutes. 

The speed limit is five miles per hour or less, allowing ample time to observe the wild animals closely. You have complete freedom to pause and appreciate the scenic views, so take your time. After all, it’s not every day you get to enjoy a drive while a zebra checks out your car!
