Are you ready to explore Florida’s great outdoors? We have got just the thing in mind. Located just under an hour away from Festiva Orlando Resort, nestled among pristine marshland, is WILD FLORIDA. Their mission is to provide their guests with an unforgettable Everglades experience with a focus on a connection to animals, education, and environmental conservation. They do just that! With their main draw being their popular Everglades airboat tours, Wild Florida has other numerous attractions that have been enticing adventurous visitors for years. Follow along below as we tell you more about each exciting attraction!
Airboat Tour. Step aboard a U.S. Coastguard certified airboat and explore pristine marshland. This popular attraction pulls in locals and tourists from all over, providing a one-of-a-kind way to see Florida’s stunning wildlife. Experience nature in a way you have never before - up close and personal! Skim across the shoreline, while you search preserved land for wildlife that will disappear into endless swamps, marshes, and rivers. Be on the lookout – you will probably catch a glimpse of eagles, turkeys, wild boar, alligators, and other native Florida wildlife!
Drive Thru Safari Park. Get ready for your wildest car ride yet! Offering a worldly experience, the Drive Thru Safari Park at Wild Florida will take you from the forests of North America to the African savanna. All from the comfort of your vehicle! Spanning across eighty-five acres of scenic land, you will have the chance to enjoy and discover more than 100 native and exotic animals roaming freely. While in the park, you will experience giraffes, zebra, antelope, bison, and more in their natural habitat. Along the two mile path, don’t miss out on the chance to stop and feed a giraffe on their elevated feeding platform!
Gator Park. After you have felt the wind in your hair on an airboat tour and cruised through the safari, don’t forget to stop by the Gator Park! Included in the cost of the Drive Thru Safari Park, the Gator Park allows you and your family to view an additional two hundred animals and enjoy educational animal shows. Their family of animals has grown over the years to include lemurs, bobcats, and two-toed sloths. Enjoy talking to their Care Team about what it is like to work with these exotic animals and learn more by asking them any questions you may have. You don’t want to miss meeting Crusher – the biggest American alligator in the Wild Florida Family. He weights over a thousand pounds! And you can’t forget the Gator Feeding Show where the gators show off their speed and strength.
The Gator Park is full of something for the whole family. Visit the Petting Zoo to learn, love, and feed baby animals. Step onto the tree-covered boardwalk and walk along the Hawk Swamp where you will have the chance to see owls roosted in the shaded cypress trees. And if at the end of the day the kids still need to burn some energy, they even have a covered playground for the kids to run around.
