Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

This popular family adventure park offers numerous attractions with the theme of exotic encounters with the continent of Africa. At Busch Gardens, there are exciting rides, a zoo with more than 2,000 animals, live entertainment, dining, shopping and games.


This village is set among tall trees, waterways and fancy stone buildings. For kids, there is a 3-story-high playground with climbing nets, mazes and tunnels. You can explore the tree canopy on a zip line or soar into the sky from inside a 35-foot waterfall. You can see exotic jungle animals up close, and engage in a tug of war with a Bengal tiger. Jungala is an interactive jungle experience.

Serengeti Night Safari

Here in the Edge of Africa, you can watch animals feeding and the active nighttime behaviors of hippos, lions and hyenas lit only by moonlight and lanterns. On the Serengeti Plain, with night-vision monoculars and special filtered lighting you can see free-roaming herds of giraffes, zebra, and rhinos. The tour begins and ends in the Safari Club, which offers appetizers and a night cap with coffee and desserts. The Serengeti Night Safari begins after sunset on select Friday and Saturday nights. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to participate.
