The Wild Florida Wildlife Park offers all that rugged Florida has to offer. From guided Airboat Tours and guided Ranch Buggy rides to a Wildlife Park and the delicious Chomp House Grill, Wild Florida has something for everyone.
Why It’s Popular
Wild Florida is way more than just an Airboat Tour. Wild Florida captures a part of Florida as it was when the earliest European settler arrived in the 1800s. An Airboat tour will take you up close and personal with Florida’s native wildlife. Around any corner, you might expect to see a gator basking in the warm Florida sun, as well as wild turkeys, wild boar, or beautiful marsh birds like the roseate spoonbill. Private airboat rides are available for those who prefer a one-on-one experience, and night tours are offered for anyone who wants to experience wild Florida after dark.
The Wild Florida Wildlife Park is home to lemurs, zebras, sloths, and a variety of other animals that are native to South America, Africa, and Australia. The park features a petting zoo and animal shows, including the popular #GatorHug, a live gator handling show during which audience members are invited to hold a baby gator. The popular Ranch Buggy Tour shows you what the first Central Florida cattle ranches were like. This tour takes participants through a working cattle ranch that traces its roots back to the 1850s. If all of this leaves you feeling hungry, Wild Florida also features an excellent barbecue restaurant. The Chomp House Grill offers some of the best barbecue in the area.
Who Loves It?
Wild Florida is a fun time for young and old alike. The nature lover will delight in getting up close and personal with native Florida wildlife. The history buff will be thrilled with a look at Old Florida cattle ranching.
