What To Expect

Just 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.

Enjoy Florida’s natural beauty with an airboat ride. Hop onboard 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.

Back at the Wildlife Park, take a leisurely stroll and get up close with more than 200 different animals. Check out the lemurs, sloths, zebras, watusi cattle, bobcats and other animals native to South America, Africa, and Australia. Kids love the covered playground as well as feeding and learning more about baby animals in the Petting Zoo.

Upgrade to the half-day package to include a delicious barbeque lunch at the Chomp House Grill (featuring pulled pork, smoked ribs or smoked chicken plus a side dish, bread, and drink) and an alligator souvenir.

We enjoyed the trip and Lauren did a great job! Were able to see many alligators during our 30 minute trip. Next time we’ll definitely do the one hour trip.
Better than Gatorland

Was a fun day out. I paid more to add on the drive in safari when I thought it was included. The animals here look to be in a better condition to me than at Gatorland which I thought was bordering on animal cruelty. Overall a good day out. The boat ride was great.

Captain Farmer was an amazing guide who was very knowledgeable. The whole trip exceeded our expectations. This is a must do if you are in the Orlando area!
Wild Florida was premo fun for all
Wendy_J, Jan 2024
We arrived to a friendly reception and were guided to the boats section. Captain Curtis was knowledgeable and welcomed questions during our boating encounter. We saw gators, and other wildlife on our ride. Our lunch was good and we then proceeded to the park where we saw a range of animals. The shows were interactive (where possible - lol) and our teenage sons enjoyed their experience, as did we. As far as value for money goes for a family of 4, this was extremely good and we would not hesitate recommending Wild Florida. We had issues with our ride back to Orlando. What was impressive was the good ladies on reception sought another ride for us and waited 30 minutes after closing for our ride to arrive. WF was a highlight during our stay in Orlando.
