Animals and their habitats
Tampa Lowry Park Zoo is focused on connecting people with the earth. By creating the highest quality habitats and focusing on conservation, the zoo is the perfect place the whole family can enjoy. With over 800,000 annual guests and five Certificate of Excellence awards from TripAdvisor, it’s no wonder!
Lowry Park Zoo is home to extremely impressive habitats, showcasing a diverse collection of endangered and vulnerable species that are suited for Central Florida’s climate. A trip through Safari Africa and Ituri Forest puts you up close with African penguins, cheetahs, white rhinos, curious meerkats, elephants, zebras, and giraffes to name just a few. Families come first at Wallaroo Station with interactive areas and a chance to see koalas, pygmy goats, wallabies, flying fox bats and more. If you want to see leopards, komodo dragons, bears and tigers, then Asian Gardens is the place for you. It’s all monkey business at Primate World, where chimpanzees, orangutans and other primates live in their own playground.
Birds of Prey will let you see bald eagles, condors, hawks and various types of owls. Meanwhile the Free Flight Aviaries are where you’re going to see several beautiful birds fly overhead, like the boat-billed heron and ibis as just two of the over 50 different species in this area. Plus, you’ll learn plenty about indigenous creatures of the state in two specific areas. American alligators, Florida panthers, stingrays, Key deer and more await you at the Florida Boardwalk.
While seeing the animals is great, being able to physically interact with them is an unforgettable experience. Safari Africa gives you the chance to touch and feed giraffes, while also getting you up close and personal with many endangered species. Pet goats, walk with wallabies and interact with Bushland Budgies in the free-flight aviary at Wallaroo Station. Everyone in the family will delight with Lorikeet Landing in the Free Flight Aviaries, where the lorikeets will land on you and enjoy some nectar from a small cup you purchase as you hold it. And don’t forget your chance to feel the silky stingrays at Stingray Bay at the Florida Manatee and Aquatic Center.
Rides and More
When you want to take a break from seeing the animals, Lowry Park Zoo has you covered with free rides and much more. Kids can laugh it up on the Outback Bumper Boats and Boomer’s Flyin’ Bananas. And the whole family can enjoy trips on the Overland Express, Tasmanian Tiger Family Coaster, Jungle Carousel and Gator Falls Flume Ride. And if the little ones want to cool off, they can have fun in the Manatee Fountains near the main entrance and Billabong Fountains in Wallaroo Station.
From February to August 2017, you and the entire family can experience the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo!
