"Great fun!"
February 2019
This was a great experience! I highly recommend Dennis as your tour guide. He could be a stand up comedian. The wildlife were amazing! Lots of birds and a couple of alligators were interesting and we learned a bit about Florida wildlife. I would go again anytime!

"Great Experience"
February 2018
We had never been on an airboat before. It was a great experience. Our guide was terrific. He got us up close to a number of alligator 's as we made way through the water. We most certainly would come back here for another ride!

"fun day"
October 2017
day was overcast, but that did not slow down our fun day. Animals, most were very well kept. white tale deer could use a little help.The food was very good and a good price. The air boat ride is not required, but we went for it, and very glad we did. Mark was our captain/tour guide. Great time. Would HIGHLY recommend.

"Family vacation 2015"
April 2015
We really enjoyed our time in Florida. The airboat ride at Wild Florida was exceptional. Our boat Captain ( John ) was very knowledgeable of the area where he took us. We seen many gators and other animals that are indigenous to the area. There were three groups in our family and we all made reservations at separate times. Wild Florida was very accommodating in getting our groups together so we could ride in one boat. After the airboat ride we walked through the animal park. We had the pleasure to see feeding 10+ foot alligators and many of the different animals they have on display. Would do it again in the future.

Tip: Take the early boat ride. More gators and animals moving about. Don't be in a hurry. Take your time, relax and have fun. Just as it should be when vacationing.

"Awesome Airboat ride."

We had a great ride for our group of 15. Our Capt. Was very good and knew where to look for Gators. The Zoo was also pretty neat, my 2 year old nephew got to hug and hold a 2 foot Gator.

"A hidden gem!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 16, 2020 NEW
About 45 minutes outside of Orlando, this was a great experience for our family. We did the half hour airboat ride, which was just long enough for four children ages ranging from 3-6. The kids absolutely loved the ride and our driver was great! Even the adults in our party enjoyed our first experience on an airboat! We also strolled around the animal park, did the drive through safari and fed Walter and Leroy, the giraffes. Everything was clean and the animals looked well cared for. We thought this was a great alternative to Disneys Animal Kingdom, if you want to skip the crowds. We will definitely be back on our next vacation!

"Behind the Scenes Tour with Lydia"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 16, 2020 NEW
Lydia was very knowledgeable ad kind. We were there with our grandson and he was so excited to be there and see all the animals that he would interrupt her even after being reminded not to. She was always nice to him and would kindly answer his questions. Especially the ones he had when we got to where the snakes are. He was fascinate with the King Cobra and asked many questions which Lydia answered in a way that a 6 year old could understand.

"Wildlife and Nature Park"

Reviewed March 09, 2020 NEW
My husband and I spent a wonderful day at Wild Florida Wildlife and Nature Park. We enjoyed opportunities to pet goats and newborn kids, tortoises, alpaca, and more at the petting zoo. While we did not see many shows, we did get to watch the "Crusher Show" - Impressive! A walk through the aviary allowed up-close viewing of a wide variety of birds and a stroll along the boardwalk through Hawk Swamp affords visitors a glimpse into "Old Florida." This is truly one of Florida's Hidden Gems.
