Sarasota Jungle Gardens

A tropical adventure awaits all who visit the Sarasota Jungle Gardens.

Full of flora, fauna and fun, yet it remains current and exciting for today’s families, locals and tourists alike.

It is home to more than 200┬ánative and exotic animals including birds of prey, different species of parrots and macaws, primates, small mammals, dozens of snakes, lizards, iguanas, alligators, crocodiles and other reptiles – many of them rescued or donated – including Florida’s noted pink flamingos. All nestled within 10 acres of lush tropical landscaping connected by winding jungle trails.
