A tropical adventure awaits all who visit the Sarasota Jungle Gardens. One of the oldest continuously operated attractions in Florida established in 1939, Sarasota Jungle Gardens evokes memories of Florida days gone by. 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 native 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.

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to go on a wildlife exploration? Come take a trek with us through wild jungles and meet interesting animals along the way. Learn how some animals use their senses just like us! Or find out how some can see in the dark! Sarasota Jungle Gardens’ Wildlife Explorers will learn this and many more things throughout the park while getting up close and personal with animals.
The focus of this exploration will be on “Natural Science” and “Life Science”
Students will be guided through areas of the park and investigate for information on the animals featured. They will learn about habitats, life spans, diets, characteristics, and much more!
For Kindergarten students: Each area of the park has a “Read Before You See” book to read with students before coming to the park.
Minimum: 10 students.
