I went with my young daughter on this tour. The tour guide was nice and made the usual corny jokes. She asked questions that most of us already knew the answers to. Feeding the giraffes was a lot of fun! My only complaints are that we were so cramped and my daughter wasn't able to see over the sides. I... More

The food, the guides and the entire experience was absolutely wonderful. I thought the "campfire" stories may be a bit corny, but they were also fantastic. Busch Gardens was very generous with the food and the drinks. Want to return!!

We always love this busch gardens. The place is huge and the rides are all fun. There are plenty of places to dine and please all members of the family. I have 3 kids all ranging from 1yr to 12. All of them had a great time minus the thunderstorms that prevented the rides from going during.

What a great time if you like to get up close with animals. The Giraffes come right up to you and they give you lettuce so you can feed them. Also it seems that the animals are more active at night then during the day. We will go back again next time we are in Tampa, that's how much fun... More

While there is an extra fee for the safari, it was one of the highlights of the day. Busch Gardens has done a wonderful job replicating an authentic safari experience. The highlight of the tour was definitely feeding the giraffes. There is a photographer with your tour and he/she gives the opportunity for each attendee to have their photo taken... More

As annual passholders we've gone to both the day and night safari a few times. The night safari is a bit more expensive but definitely worth doing; food and beverages at the Crown Colony, a campfire talk, a walk around to see the animals at night (definitely a different perspective) top it off with a drive feeding the giraffes at...

Enjoyable day or night It's enjoyable to see animals in a semi natural habitat We also enjoy that aspect of being able to interact with some of the animals especially the giraffes Would be nice to spend a little more time on the tour
