Why We Love Busch Gardens' Serengeti Safari Experience

by Tad on July 24, 2014

Shhh. Don't tell my parents, but one of the reasons I love vacations so much is because it is our chance to spend more time together as a family. I don't say that very often, but it's true. Somehow when we're having fun and bonding at the theme parks I forget about all of those times Mommy Frog makes me clean my room or pesters me about finishing my homework. In fact one of the most fun times we've had together as a family recently was our day at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The park has some amazing thrill and family rides plus a ton of animal encounters that are included with the cost of admission.

What made it even better this last time, though, was that we booked the Busch Gardens Serengeti Safari Experience. For just a little bit more money, you can have a once-in-a-lifetime experience viewing rhinos, zebras, antelopes and other animals up close plus you can hand-feed the giraffes!

On the 45-minute tour, it's just you and a handful of other guests riding along the safari in the back of a Jeep. While you can see parts of the 65-acre Serengeti Safari from the Skyride, Serengeti Railroad and Edge of Africa, there is nothing cooler than experiencing the safari up close in the open air! We had such a great time exploring the Serengeti, and you will too. Here are more reasons why we loved Busch Gardens' Serengeti Safari Experience.

1. Prime views. No other experience brings you so close to the animals.
