Imagine journeying through the Serengeti and experiencing some of Africa’s most beautiful animals up close. Busch Gardens Tampa makes that a reality with the Serengeti Safari experience.  

Best of Orlando recently had the chance to travel through the African Plain and what we experienced was nothing short of magical. The tour begins in an open-air vehicle that takes riders around the park’s 65-acre recreation of the Serengeti. As you take in the beauty of the area you will come in close contact with zebras, giraffes, ostriches and many more animals roaming the countryside. Each ride vehicle comes with a knowledgeable tour guide who will offer information about the animals and the area of the Serengeti you are visiting. 

Get up close and personal with your favorite animals at Busch Gardens Tampa

In addition to seeing the animals, the Serengeti Safari also lets you interact with them! The tour makes a special stop at the giraffes, allowing guests to feed and even touch the animals. This part of the tour was especially fun for the children, and we had a blast getting up close with the giraffes too!  

We would like to point out that you do not want to forget your camera! This just may be the closest you will get to Africa’s most fascinating animals and you want to be able to relive the experience again and again.  

The Serengeti Safari is a separate ticket from Busch Gardens’ admission, but you can find discounted tickets to both right here on!
