We went in February for a special Valentine's Day event. Beyond the animal truck and feeding the giraffes, we had a lovely, romantic dinner at the Crown Colony Restaurant. It is pricey, but well worth it! You do not have to pay extra park admission, if you go to the event after the park has closed. The "guides" were great,... More

The meeting time is just before the park closes and the meeting place is easily reached by following the BLUE LINE. You meet at The CROWN COLONY gate. This is a 21 and over event.

Yes, you have to pay extra for this, but it is a once in a life-time experience that only a specific amount of people can go on per day. You... More

You must first pay admission to Busch Gardens and then pay a separate fee for the safari. No where on the website did it mention that. Not to mention $15 for parking. Needless to say, did not go.

This was an unforgettable event. It was at the end of the day. They served beer and wine on the safari. You go out in the Serengeti in the back of a big truck and feed the Giraffes romaine. Bring your camera!

The temperature was over 90 and the truck was open. We live near Lion Country Safari and see many more animals there.
