A ride out on the savannah and a stop for a campfire talk. Drinks are also served at the campfire. A great way to see... More

This is an adults only tour which is nice. You start off with appetizers in the Crown Colony and then take a walk to see the hippo and lions. Very interesting at night because the animals were more active. We then boarded a truck and went out on the "Seregenti". Yes it is hard to see at night but tour... More

I am a annual pass holder and I received a free Serengeti tour for my birthday from Busch Gardens... It was Awesome. They drive you up close to the animals and you learn a lot about them. You get to feed the giraffes!

Well worth the visit. Guides are very entertaining and the up close and personal interaction with the animals is something you rarely get a chance to experience otherwise. Put it at the top of your visit list in Tampa.

We went for a date night, and it was well worth it. We enjoyed getting to see the animals at night when they were more active. You start the evening with appetizers and drinks at the Crown Colony. The group takes a short hike to see the lions being fed. A ride in the back of the safari truck takes... More
