Take your Zoo visit to the next level with animal feedings, kayak tours, train rides, aerial adventures and other incredible experiences. There’s something for everyone!

Please note: Due to construction, our giraffes will be getting some extra rest on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with appearances after noon. We appreciate your support during this time! 

In Florida, thunderstorms with lightning happen regularly. For the safety of our guests, the Zoo stops certain activities when thunder is heard. Our rule of thumb is to wait 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder before resuming kayaking, Treetop Trek, and Paws On water play activities.
