Explore the Headwaters of the Everglades!
A visit through the Headwaters of the Florida Everglades will be the wildest adventure you experience in Central Florida.
While we’re mainly known for our Everglades airboat tours, there’s so much more to experience at Wild Florida. At Wild Florida, you can also visit more than 200 native and exotic animals inside our Alligator Park, eat unique swamp delicacies served at the Chomp House Grill, and get WILD with our animals during one of our interactive animal encounters and Drive-thru Safari Park! We’re just a 45-minute drive from Orlando’s major theme parks and have enough adventure to share with everyone.
Explore a part of pristine marshland that hasn’t changed from when early pioneers settled in the 1800s. Climb aboard a U.S. Coast Guard certified airboat and catch a glimpse of eagles, turkeys, wild boar, roseate spoonbills, alligators in Florida and other native wildlife. After your airboat tour, make sure to stroll through our Alligator Park where you can see lemurs, sloths, zebras, and other animals native to South America, Africa, and Australia.
Wild Florida is a feast for the eyes and the soul, but we haven’t forgotten about your stomach. The Chomp House Grill turns out some of the best barbecue around, and our Swamp Slushy – a frozen blend of mango, orange, and passionfruit – is reason enough to visit us in the heartland of the Florida Everglades.
Early morning, afternoon, sunset, or night airboat tours give you the opportunity to experience a different side of Florida you don’t often see on brochures.
We Put the Wild in Wild Florida at our Gator Park
Since 2010, our goal has been to provide an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation.
Inside our Alligator Park, you and your family will be able to get up close and personal with more than 200 native and exotic animals! Take your time exploring the interesting habitats and heritage of our animals. Talk to our animal care team about what it’s like to work with these amazing animals and how our population of lemurs, bobcats, two-toed sloths and other exotic animals have grown over the years.
There’s something for every member of your family inside our Alligator Park. Kids will love feeding and learning more about the baby animals in our Petting Zoo. Mom and Dad can rest easy knowing that there is a covered playground for kids to run around when they need to burn off some energy. Grandma, Grandpa and the whole extended family will love exploring our Hawk Swamp where owls often roost in the coolness of the cypress tree-canopied boardwalk. Then, the whole family can walk through our shaded bird aviary and feed tropical birds found around the world!
Start Cruising Through our Drive-Thru Safari Park!
Some road trips take you across the country, but ours will take you across continents.
Buckle up for your wildest car ride yet! Travel down gravel paths within our Drive-thru Safari Park and discover more than 100 native and exotic animals roaming freely. During your journey, you’ll have the opportunity to observe a variety of animals often only found around the world. Enjoy identifying species from as far away as the African savanna to others from the deciduous forests of North America, all from the comfort of your own car. (*Please note that your vehicle must have a top and that vehicles like convertibles or motorcycles are not allowed through the Drive-thru Safari.)
Expanding across 85 acres of untouched scenic landscapes, our wildlife and safari park presents a unique opportunity to bring you up close and personal with wild animals such as giraffes, zebra, eland antelope, scimitar oryx, American bison, mouflon sheep, and more! As you travel down our two-mile “unbeaten path,” you and your family can enjoy an exploration just feet away from animals you normally only see on TV. But the fun you’ll have isn’t confined to your car. Take your adventure to new heights and feed giraffes on our elevated giraffe feeding platform. (Talk about the perfect Facebook profile picture!)
