this was an amazing experience to be able to feed the Giraffes,it's a shame that you have to pay the full entrance fee to get into Busch Gardens & then an extra fee to do the Safari trip. the plus side for us was that we were the only 4 people doing the last Safari so had the jeep to... More

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. You first meet your guides who take you to the Crown Colony restaurant for hors d' houvres and cocktails. The guides begin by telling you... More

The Serengeti Night Safari at Busch Gardens really is a hidden gem in the Tampa Bay area. I had no idea this existed until stumbling upon it on Trip Advisor. While I see some reviews below, it is clear that paying for this safari does not grant you access into the park and it is for adults 21+. The tour... More

I booked this extra excursion before travelling to Florida. You have to check in when you get to the park, then be at the Safari Hut at your allocated time. 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.
