“Amazing tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I highly recommend this tour. It was a great experience. My wife and I had an amazing time. Our tour guides, Gabe and Eric, could not have been better. They were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. They told great stories and made everyone feel very welcome. The tour provided great food and plenty of drinks. We fed giraffes, relaxed next to a bonfire, used night-vision goggles to view the animals and so much more. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone. This is definitely one of the best kept secrets I have ever stumbled across. Do yourself a favor a check it out ASAP before the secret is out!

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Love it. We did it with 2 small kids under the age of 7 and they both had an amazing time. The tour guide was amazing, he made sure all the kiddies (big and small) got to feed the giraffes many, many times. It was one of our favorite things to do in Florida.

“Whoops, reviewed under Busch Gardens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Sorry, I did my review on this under the Busch Gardens category. Suffice to say that this is an excellent trip to make with colleagues or family. Great staff who is extremely dedicated to the care and safety of some very gentle beasts. Giraffe interaction was clearly the highlight, but the flamingoes were highly entertaining as well. A great value; highly recommend.

“Serengeti Night Safari at Busch Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Always an enjoyable experience! This Park has something for every age and is also Handicapped Friendly. The employees are also very accommodating and friendly to their visitors. They have a new Roller Coaster called Cheetah Hunt. One of the longest, most thrilling in the area! You definitely get your value for your money at this Park! Awesome Shuttle Service to and from the Parking lot. Highly recommend!

“We keep coming back - again and again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is my wife's favorite feature at Busch Gardens. She normally hates zoos because the animals are caged or in facilities that do not provide them with the space needed to live as normal a life as possible. This one is different because of the size of each containment for the animals. She especially loved the proximity to the giraffes we were afforded on one of our many trips. It is well worth your wait, especially when my wife led the entire line of her rendition of "The lion sleeps tonight" while waiting for the next car. We were amazed at how many good voices were in that line and the tour guides were amused because they had never heard such a good time by people waiting in the hot sun for a ride through smelly grounds. Our guide gave us special attention because we were having such a good time. We will be purchasing season tickets again next year and continue spending time at the Gardens and the Serengeti.
