“Serengeti Safari”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Just returned from Orlando USA. Whilst out there we visited Busch Gardens, Tampa twice. On the second time we booked to go on The Serengeti Safari where you get up close to the animals. Wow what a great experience, we got to feed the giraffes, took lots of photos and had a great time. The Park has so many attractions & rollercoasters to go on, you have to pay & book a time slot, but for $19.00 for each adult it was worth every penny I would certainly recommend to anyone going out there to try it, I wish we had done it on the other occasions when we had visited before........

“Fun for all, I even bought a season pass!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Busch Gardens is a great way to spend the day. You can have the thrill of roller coaster or stroll through and just enjoy the animals and atmosphere. Very clean and entertaining shows. Highly recommend it!

“good combination of rides and animals...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have been to florida several times but have never been to Busch Gardens. SO this holiday we decided to give it a go.

There were 5 of us, myself and my husband, my two daughters (12 and 14) and my father in law, so between us we cover a few ages.

We all enjoyed this park, my father law enjoyed the animals, as did my youngest daughter. My eldest daughter liked the roller coasters.

We were staying in davenport so it is about an hours drive, but it was easy driving.

Worth a visit but I am not sure that we would go back.
