Brimming with exotic jungle animals and plants, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, founded in 1939, is one of the oldest attractions in Florida. Explore this tropical jungle and see more than 150 animals, including birds of prey, parrots, macaws, reptiles and primates. During your visit, you will learn interesting facts about alligators, snakes and parrots, thanks to informative presentations from Sarasota Jungle Gardens guides. Animal shows are presented daily, and you can get your picture taken with a large parrot!
The park’s most popular attraction is the Florida flamingos. You can get close to these large birds and feed them from the palm of your hand. Stroll the botanical trails, relax on a bench and admire the park’s beautiful flora. You can learn about the different species of plants that are described on information panels. Sarasota Jungle Gardens is a rewarding and fun activity that will please the whole family!
