Awesome crocs!!
Sep 2021 • Family
Everything was amazing here. Our guide was top notch and was very knowledgeable about all the animals here. We got to hold a baby croc, a ball python, a tarantula, and even pet a white skunk!! After, we fed some animals and walked the park to see all the animals. We loved how they were in a natural habitat unlike zoos. We got to see some HUGE crocs feed and take a nice little boat ride. Highly recommend and for the price, you can’t beat it for a nice afternoon. Thanks for the experience!!

A Roadside Attraction Not to Be Missed
Aug 2021 • Couples
If you want to visit an attraction off the beaten path, then Jungle Adventures is for you. We arrived right when the place opened and were greeted warmly. Lori gave us a personal tour, because we were the only ones there early. Lori was informative, humorous and let us hold a baby alligator, snake and even a tarantula! We got to see a rare skunk that was not black and white, but cinnamon colored. We enjoyed seeing all the animals, especially the Florida panther. We also went on the jungle cruise and saw many alligators. As a special treat, a swamp rat jumped on the boat and ran towards me and then jumped off the boat again. It was awesome! We had a great time!

A beautiful day in REAL florida !
May 2021 • Family
A wonderful place for your whole family!
If you love the beautiful natural scenery of florida, but don’t want to walk aimlessly through uncharted territory than this is the place to go!
It has all the real feel of old florida with the added beauty of education from handlers who dedicate their lives to the animals on the property.
You can see that they work hard and are salt of the earth people who take their time to teach, talk, and share their passion with you.
My favorite part of the whole experience is that you get that one on one time with the animal educators and ambassadors, unlike at large big name parks.
They really go out of their way to make it and immersive and beautiful experience. As for the animals, they all have a back story this isn’t your average “paid for the animals on the property zoo” they work hand in hand with local wildlife officers to give homes to the unwanted, abandoned, and illegal pets we see far too often in this state.
Your dollar actually matters here, you can see as they grow, the park grows. Being a smaller park they may not have all the new, the shiny, the big, but they have the heart. Each animal educator knows each animal in a way I know my dogs and cats at home. They see them everyday and love them everyday! Even those who may not be in enclosures and tend to the customers in the gift shop still have a love for the animals ALL throughout the park.
I left here wanting more and raving about the work that the staff does to keep everything and everyone happy, healthy, and in line.
Please take time to support this beautiful place and the people who run it!
You may say “wow that’s a small park” but the more times you walk around the board walk the more things you see, the more times you pass the animals in their habitats the more quirky personalities you see!
I must say, I feel hard and fast for the Coyotes and the wolves! And Boris the old man bear, bless his soul 🥺 to be able to live such a LONG life because of the care he’s received, it’s honestly such a beautiful thing to see!
If you’ve made it this far and haven’t bought a ticket to tour the park...well.. WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? 🐊🐾💚

Captive animals made me sad
Apr 2021
Boris the bear and cougars Venus and Apollo are cooped up in small enclosures with cars zipong past on the highway just a few hundred yards away from Boris’ cage. Boris seems to spend his days waiting for whatever food people drop to him in his small, barren enclosure. Boris, Venus, and Apollo are living on unyielding concrete, which can be bad for their skeletal system, plus can cause muscle strain and pressure sores, especially for geriatric animals such as these. Seeing wild animals boxed up like they are here makes me sad. I wish this place would send them to sanctuary and focus on other forms of entertainment.

Up close with dinosaurs
Apr 2021
We found this place randomly from a flyer in our Air BnB. Reasonably priced and easy to get around. As most small animal tractions go this was very nice and humane. All of the animals seemed to be content and happy, All of the employees were happy and informative.

Not what I expected
Jan 2021
I use TripAdvisor for a lot of my research. I was really disappointed in this place. It seemed very "run down". There are a lot of alligators to be sure, but it just seemed like the habitats needed some TLC. You can feed animals through tubes, but some of the animals that didn't have tubes seemed hungry to me. It's much smaller than what you would expect. There were a few empty habitats with no signs. You pay separately for the animal feed, but 2/3 of a hot dog for $3 seems a bit high. Luckily, I used a groupon - I would have been upset if I paid full price. You can easily get through it in less than an hour.

I love the jumping alligators and the place was clean and well kept. The animals were treated good and had clean enclosures. I want to give a shout-out to Lorean our tour guide, she’s well educated and fun👍👍👍

Gators? Yes

We never knew about Tripadvisor until we had went to Swim With Manatees in Crystal River. TA is how we found this little wildlife attraction in Christmas Florida. What a cool little park. Lots to see and lots to do. We live in Orlando and had know clue there was a "Christmas Florida" . This park was great for the kids too, staff was very helpful and friendly.

A very informative nature park that all Floridians need to experience.
Oct 2020 • Couples
This is rated #9 of things to do in Holiday, but should be #9 in things to do in Florida. My wife and I saw this on the way home, and stopped in to see what was offered. A self-guided tour to see the animals, in what was there own personal habitat. They also provided shows in which they fed gators, bears, and showed off a small array of animals that they let you hold. They gave a brief history of Florida’s Native Americans, and was very informative. It was an up close encounter with wildlife, and a true nature of Florida’s swamps. Every Floridian needs to do experience this.
