A Fodor’s top 10 safari in the U.S. welcomes Floridians with 50 percent off vehicle safaris on select days in September and brings back its annual Pumpkin Safaris in October.
Florida residents can enjoy a two-hour guided vehicle safari for just $45.00 per person (regularly $90.00). This offer is valid on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in September by using offer code FLRESIDENT50. Advance reservations and valid Florida ID are required.
Located halfway between Tampa and Orlando on 260 scenic acres, Safari Wilderness provides an up-close encounter with herds of roaming exotic animals—without the crowds and lines found at theme parks and zoos. This fall the family-owned, working game ranch will offer a special deal for Florida residents to experience a safari that rivals the African savanna, right in their own backyard.
Back by popular demand, Safari Wilderness will also offer its annual Pumpkin Safaris on Saturdays and Sundays in October. The 45-minute guided tour departs on the hour from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Each Pumpkin Safari admission comes with a free pumpkin, which can be decorated at the ranch and given to animals for enrichment or taken home.
Admission is $39.00 per guest, $75.00 for two guests and $145.00 for four guests. Advance reservations are not required for Pumpkin Safaris. All tours are held rain or shine. Parking is $7.00 per car.
