The guides were great and very informative. Kaitlyn and Christian were top notch and really welcomed my son Noah. They both genuinely seem interested in all Noah had to say to them. He too is an animal enthusiast and hopes to work with animals and reptiles one day. I would hope that in the future more animal encounters would be added and maybe be apart of the shows for the zoo keeper for a day. Thank you for this opportunity. We look forward to future visits.

I choose to be zookeeper for the day along with a boat ride. The girl giving the tour was amazing. She was very informative and had a genuine love for the animals. She took tons of pictures for me with the animals so I could choose my favorite. The boat ride was nice too, the man also had a lot of information and would try his best to get us close to any animals we encountered on the water. With my package came a lunch and it was surprisingly good. I had a pulled chicken sandwich and was full afterwards (I’m usually very picky). I had a blast and enjoyed every aspect of the day. It’s a great break from Disney and very calming. Thanks again!

Great park with a really nice , positive and comfortable staff, the experience of been a keeper for a day was great and you learn a lot about the animals and why some of them are there, it didn’t feel like a prison at all like many Zoo’s have made me feel the animal seems to be happy and comfortable the keepers seems to be in a good connection with them too. Over all it was the BEST park we went to in Orlando/ Florida would love to go there again one day. Thank you Wild Florida for the experience and for a great day.
