Wild Florida Airboats and Gator Park have announced a new addition to their facility for 2019 – a drive-through safari park.
This new safari park will be open to the public in summer 2019, offering 75 acres of adventure. Guests can choose to drive their personal cars or ride on a guided swamp buggy tour through the park. On the tour, guests will be able to see over 100 exotic animals and wildlife native to Florida like wild boar, white-tailed deer, zebras, cracker cows, watusi, and more.
Wild Florida will also build a large pond inside the safari park as a dedicated home for all alligators trapped by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions SNAP program, that would otherwise be euthanized due to their loss of natural fear for humans.
Additionally, Wild Florida plans to construct a zip line through the park that travels across cypress swamps, animal exhibits and scenic landscapes. The original gift shop at Wild Florida will undergo a major renovation that includes the addition of a second story, doubling the floor space.
“Our team has dreamt about doing this for years, and we’re excited for construction to begin,” said Ranier Munns, co-owner of Wild Florida. “Florida summers can be brutally hot, so we’re excited to offer guests a new way to explore the beauty of natural Florida and learn about different wildlife all from their air-conditioned car.”
Admission to Wild Florida is only $10 for adults, and Florida residents can receive a 50 percent discount year-round. Admission to the park is free for any guest with the purchase of an airboat tour or animal encounter.
