Wild Florida's wildlife park showcases native Floridian animals and exotic creatures from Africa. Guests can hold baby alligators, listen to the calls of tropical birds, and feed watusi—African cattle with oversize horns. Zebras, water buffalo, and emus also call the park home. Elsewhere, a 500-foot sightseeing dock and boardwalks through the cypress swamps allow visitors to gaze out at sprawling swamplands, where soft-shell turtles and full-size gators wash their hair and play with bath toys. Before leaving, visitors follow the scents of smoked ribs, chicken, and pork to the onsite restaurant, Pete & Pegs Silver Platter Bar B-Q.

Wild Florida

A bald eagle soars above Florida's everglades, its eyes scanning the creatures below—ranging from an alligator to a soft-shell turtle to a large vessel that seems to glide along the water's surface. This is one of Wild Florida's airboats, which journeys deep into Florida's untouched everglades on daytime and evening tours. A Coast Guard–certified captain controls the machine’s massive fan, which propels sightseers across marshes and down rivers, where they search for the 67 threatened species that call the Everglades' 4,200 acres home. As the airboat rounds a bend, its passengers notice a dark-green mass in the water. An alligator peeks it head above the surface, opens its jaws, and reveals rows of powerful teeth that could make any dentist rev a dental drill in excitement.

At the end of the tour, the captain and passengers unload at Wild Florida's 500-foot dock, but their ecological encounters are far from over. At the onsite wildlife park, visitors can hold baby alligators and whisper sweet nothings into their ear openings. It also showcases exotic African creatures, such as zebras, water buffalo, and emu. After a day of exploration, aromas of smoked barbecue lure visitors to the onsite watering hole Pete & Pegs Silver Platter Bar B-Q, which serves everything from pulled pork to gator tails.


Reviews

They also had some delicious bbq that you could get lunch/ dinner at and if you decide to eat there, try the frog legs and gator bites!

The kids fell in love with the pygmy goats that enjoyed being scratched behind their ears!

  • “Most fun I've had at a Florida reserve. Staff was great, exhibit was fun, gator feed was the highlight. My 5 year old loved it. Snacks and food very reasonable.”
