WILD FLORIDA AIRBOAT RIDE & WILDLIFE PARK
Imagine being in the middle of nowhere… or rather place yourself there on a Wild Florida Airboat ride!
Wild Florida Airboat & Wildlife Park Experience is only 45 minutes from Orlando and Disney area, but you enter another world exploring deep into the Everglades by airboat, with no other signs of human civilisation.
Spooky, eh? And you can add to the thrilling atmosphere by choosing a sunset or even ‘after dark’ ride, when the ‘gators come out to ‘play’.
As you travel, you’ll be seeing the Florida wilderness much as it would have looked 1000 years ago, which is a rare and unforgettable treat. As you glide into protected swamps, marches and rivers, spot alligators, exotic birds, trees and plants.
Opt for the 30-minute ride, or better still a one hour eco tour ($45 adult, $35 kids aged 3-12), both include free entry to the Wildlife Park with its zebras, turkeys, watusi (not just a dance, here a breed of cattle), zedonk (a zebra-donkey hybrid), deer, water buffalo, emu, wild boar, zebu monster alligators and more. There’s even a ‘hands on’ alligator experience, for those who dare.
Hawk Swamp boardwalk, through pristine Florida cypress swamp, is an educational tour of the eco-system. In the park store, you may wish to ignore an authentic, jaws wide open gator-head souvenir and opt for a somewhat tamer t-shirt instead!
