The Best Animal Parks in Florida
Get Wild in South Florida at Everglades Holiday Park
Looking to make your next trip to South Florida a real walk on the wild side? Everglades Holiday Park is one of the leading animal parks in the region, offering guests up-close access to American alligators, snakes and other inhabitants of the Florida wetlands. From airboat tours that take you deep into the 'Glades to see these creatures in their natural habitat, to exciting programming from the famous Gator Boys themselves, there's no better place to get up close and personal with the original inhabitants of this vast and diverse region.
A Florida Animal Park That's Fun for All Ages!
Have you ever wanted to hold a real-live python? Or maybe you'd be interested in posing for a picture with a baby alligator. At Everglades Holiday Park, you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of furry and scaly friends. Not only will you get to interact with these animals in a supervised environment - you'll also get an official picture proving it to the folks back home.
Our animal park is unlike a zoo where animals are unnaturally caged and spend their days staring at visitors through glass. At Everglades Holiday Park, we feature animals as they are in nature. It's an incredible opportunity to see firsthand how they live and coexist in this amazing tropical environment.
Ride the "River of Grass" in an Everglades Airboat Tour
From our convenient starting point just outside of Fort Lauderdale, a fleet of modern and well-maintained airboats is available to take you out into the wild Florida Everglades. Our experienced guides know the best places to spot wading birds, gators and other critters.
Capable of traveling up to 60 mph, our boats are also able to cover a lot of ground quickly so you can see as much as possible. Along the way, you'll learn about the history of the 'Glades and about its important role as an ecosystem and habitat for rare, endangered species.
Meet Animal Planet's Own Gator Boys
An exciting airboat ride is only one part of our Florida animal park. While you're here, be sure to check out a live presentation from the world famous Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, stars of their own Animal Planet TV series, Gator Boys. Presentations are fun, funny and informative, and they'll give you or your children the chance to get their picture taken with a live alligator - the proceeds of which go to the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue nonprofit.
