Just 45-minutes south of Orlando is the Wild Florida Airboats and Wildlife Park in Kenanville, the self-proclaimed “middle of nowhere” destination featuring airboat tours, ranch buggy tours, a wildlife park, restaurant and more.
At the park, meet and greet an experienced animal keeper, who will detail what to expect for the day. Learn what it’s like to work in a wetlands wildlife preserve, what the animals’ lives are like, their habits, what and how to feed them and much more.
Prepare your nerves for a private gator demonstration with the expert staff, which will give you the opportunity to feed the 14 footers... if you dare. You’ll be able to take a photo to prove it.
After the VIP tour, enjoy Florida’s natural beauty with a 1-hour airboat ride. Hop on board a U.S. Coast Guard-certified airboat and skim the shoreline or head deep into the 4,200 acres of protected swamps, marshes and rivers of the Central Florida Everglades. Catch a glimpse of alligators, eagles, turkeys, wild boars, wading birds (known as roseate spoonbills) and other native creatures. A life jacket and ear protection are provided for each guest.
Also included is a delicious barbeque lunch at the Chomp House Grill, featuring pulled pork, smoked ribs or smoked chicken plus a side dish, bread and drink.
Please note: The minimum age for this tour is 12. A flash drive of all photos taken during the VIP experience will be made available for $25 after the tour.
