My son wanted to see the Giraffes and I finally agreed. I was pleasantly surprised of how much fun this attraction was. We will definitely visit again

“Bush Gardens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Love,Love,Love! My most favorite amusement park. Disappointed they have gone up on their prices again.Renew your monthly payments don't let expire, your price will go up double at that point.
We always take out of town guest here and BG does offer good specials for our company.
They use to have great concerts. Love the animals and some of the rides. Good BBQ. Like the shows but should be changed more often.
Lots of walking or good exercising. Rental scooters are available for rent.
Lots of handicap free parking. Others may pay $14. to park. Question? Why is handicap free? Does that mean they all can't afford it while the rest of us can?
Fun park, your first time? You will enjoy.

“Fell in love with Ruby the giraffe - day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We booked this experience as something to do as I recently found out I was pregnant so unable to go on the rides.
What a little treat this was! For under $35 this was a lovely little treat for our day out.
We did our experience during the day (not offered an evening one, although as we arrived at 10, doing the safari at 2 was perfect timing). The information was informative and made you realise how endangered some animals are. Our guide was able to answer all questions with in depth answers, and of course how could you not love the opportunity to hand feed a giraffe!
On board photographer who takes plenty of photos, but you can also take your own camera on too.
Photos can be a bit pricey ($20 for 1 print) but if there is a group of you you can buy a DVD with all the images for $40 (our photographer took over 200 photos!)
Lovely little 30 minute trip!

“Friendly Giraffes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

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 ourselves with the guide & photographer so we had great photo opportunities & space to move around the truck without being cramped or struggling to get good shots. Cupid the giraffe was very obliging to let us feed her & so very gentle for a wild animal AMAZING a MUST do

“Unique Interaction with Giraffes!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

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, and they even let us use night vision goggles to see the animals in their natural habitat and undisturbed. We sat around a campfire and enjoyed wine, beer and soda while they told us about the animals surrounding us. I would highly recommend this adults-only event!
