Wild Florida’s Drive-thru Safari Park is one of the area’s few attractions still open, and you can now tour the two-mile trail and see the exotic animals for a reduced price.
Tickets are now $15 for adults and $10 for kids, and you can order your tickets online,
The “natural attraction” south of St. Cloud has suspended all airboat tours, animal encounters and admission to its Gator Park to try and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
However, the animals will be your only company on the safari, and you won’t have to come in contact with anyone but your family. It’s open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The drive-thru safari allows families to experience the 100 or so exotic and native animals scattered about the 85 acres from the comfort of their own vehicle, which takes care of social distancing concerns. And the animals along the two-mile loop — brahman, cracker and longhorn cattle, gators, crocodiles, goats, zebra, oryx, watusi, zebu, water buffalo who roam and a pair of giraffes — aren’t concerned with any stinkin’ virus and are liable to stroll right up to your car (but, as always, please don’t feed them from your car).
