What to expect
Just 45-minutes 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. At the park, meet and greet an experienced animal keeper, who will detail what to expect for the day. Learn what it’s like to work in a wetlands wildlife preserve, what the animals’ lives are like, their habits, what and how to feed them and much more. Prepare your nerves for a private gator demonstration with the expert staff, which will give you the opportunity to feed the 14 footers... if you dare. You’ll be able to take a photo to prove it. After the VIP tour, enjoy Florida’s natural beauty with a 1-hour airboat ride. Hop on board 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. Also included is a delicious barbeque lunch at the Chomp House Grill, featuring pulled pork, smoked ribs or smoked chicken plus a side dish, bread and drink. Please note: The minimum age for this tour is 12. A flash drive of all photos taken during the VIP experience will be made available for $25 after the tour.

Great place for older couple away from crowds
Jan 2020
I wanted to do an air boat ride and this looked good, wife did not want to go but did go along. Afterward she was surprised how much she enjoyed it. Forgot the boat driver/guides name but she was really good. Spotted some sunning gators in numerous spots and answered all questions. Strolling through the grounds afterwards was very entertaining.

Great experience with a Keeper-for-a-Day
Jul 2019
I highly recommend doing this experience! This was so cool to get a tour with a keeper to see how much they love the animals and to see how much the animals love and interact with them. We are so grateful our keeper was so willing to take us on a tour even in very unusual extra rainy weather and was such a great sport about it.

It is also a great price for everything you are able to do. We not only get a tour but got feed for the gators, aviary, barn yard and 2 pictures holding a gator. I almost forgot we also got an encounter with one of their animals. If you want to make the most of your visit I would say this is the choice to do!

My friend and I were able to do this plus have more than enough time to tour the park on our own and see all the shows since we arrived early. We also probably would've been able to ride their airboat which is another purchase but due to weather conditions, no boats went out because of lightning. But all in all, it was a great place to visit and the customer service there is was welcoming and informative.

Zookeeper for the Day ROCKS
Apr 2018 • Couples
My husband and I love anything animal related, and we really enjoyed the Zookeeper experience. We had a very friendly and knowledgeable young lady show us the behind the scenes care of many of the park's animal residence. We got to prepare breakfast, clean some cages and feed / hands on with the porcupines, sloths and leemurs. We both couldn't stop smiling! We would highly recommend this tour for any true animal lovers. Of course, we really enjoyed the airboat ride afterwards, where we saw close up alligators in their natural habitat, snakes, birds and beautiful scenery.
