And if you’re into flora and fauna, the captivating landscape of trees and plants that make up the wetlands are truly a sight to see. Experience the swamp come alive after sunset during the night tour. Ride through 100,000 acres of protected swamps, marshes, and rivers that local wildlife call home.

After your airboat tour, it’s time to walk through the alligator park. From animal encounters to shows, there’s so much to see. Yes, the alligators here are real! These native beasts roam the wetlands and Wild Florida gives you the opportunity to watch, touch, and even feed alligators.

Looking for more animal encounters? Get up close and personal with a two-toed sloth, red-ruffed lemur, African crested porcupine, Australian wallabies, and more. You can even take a stroll through the tropical bird aviary if you’re a bird watcher.

Hop into your car and take a drive on the wild side. Wild Florida’s Drive-Thru Safari showcases more than 150 exotic and native animals.
