4 Options for a Safari in Florida

One of the main reasons why people visit Florida is to spend some time at the beach and parks. But if you go a little bit south you might find hidden gems for all nature lovers.

Recommendations for a Safari in Florida

Safari in Florida

Lion Country safari – This Safari in Florida is a place where you can enjoy two different adventures: there is a drive through safari as well as an amusement park.

This is a great place to come to with kids because you get to see animals like giraffes and rhinos from a safe distance. Once you are done with the car ride along the safari visit the amusement park. They offer fun rides for the kids, picnic areas, more animal exhibits, you even get to feed colorful birds, and get up close to the farm animals.

They also have presentations during the day where you and your family get to learn about animals like alligators and flamingos.

Billie Swamp Safari – This is slightly different than the previous safari. In this place you can go for a ride on Airboats through cypress domes as you keep your eyes open for some of the local wildlife. You might be able to see turtles, birds and alligators living their daily lives.

If you prefer you can ride one of their cars along the swamps of Florida, in search for more animals in the wild, like buffalos and wild pigs.

Here you also get to walk along animal exhibits, the herpentarium, catch the critter show and see how alligators are fed.

Now all you have to do is to choose between these two safaris in South Florida for an adventure in the wild. Let me know how it went!
