This was fun and the people who led the tour were charismatic and a joy to be around. I had more fun on the behind the scenes tours however. There wasn't a lot of animal interaction on this safari, and you of course could barely see them since it was nighttime. The fire wasn't big enough for the crowd. The... More

Being an avid giraffe fan, I convinced my dad to pay around $40 each to do the Serengeti Day Safari. We boarded an open back truck with about 8 other people where we stood the whole time to view the animals. The trip lasted about an hour but it was full of animal facts. Did you know that giraffes have... More

A great opportunity to get up close the sum of the animals at Busch Gardens actually get to feed the giraffes.

We enjoyed our safari experience . My son and I fed the giraffes, took some great pics and were happily engaged with the the tour guide. She asked questions that my son knew the answers to and that led into some great banter. For a kid to be treated as an equal from an adult is a special time for... More

We did the daytime safari for $29.99 ( you have to purchase tickets to enter Busch Gardens). While feeding the giraffes was fun, overall I didn't think this 30 min tour was worth the extra $30. They barely stopped long enough to take pictures. There were limited animals. I would not go again.

All these great reviews had me buying the tickets for the Serengeti Safari, only to come all the way to Tampa Bay to find out that we have to buy tickets at $97 per person to enter the park! Busch Gardens should not sell the Extra Activities tickets by itself except as an addition to the Park Entry. Luckily we... More

This Safari lets you get close to the animals. The guides are very informative and answer all of your questions.
