Insider ZooQuarium Tampa Tips

What to Bring

Cameras are allowed inside both attractions, but take care not to turn on the flash as it may cause harm or distress to animals.

ZooTampa at Lowry Park has a shaded boardwalk, so no matter the weather, it is still possible to admire the animals. However, we recommend bringing sunscreen or mosquito-repelling lotions. And maybe an extra shirt for guests who want to change after a half day exploring the outdoor zoo.
