For a unique spin on the traditional pumpkin patch experience, take the family on a Pumpkin Safari at Safari Wilderness! Located halfway between Tampa and Orlando in a 260-acre wilderness area, Safari Wilderness offers an intimate, up-close encounter with herds of free-roaming animals in a breathtaking natural setting that rivals the African savanna. Safari Wilderness is not a zoo or theme park. There are no crowds or lines – just your small group of adventurers and an experienced guide driving a custom safari vehicle, fitted with a shade canopy and stadium seating.
Unlike our other safari options, advance reservations are not required for Pumpkin Safaris. Safaris depart on the hour from 1 to 5 p.m. on the following dates:
• October 14th and 15th
• October 21st and 22nd
• October 28th and 29th
• Admission for 1: $39
• Admission for 2: $75
• Admission for 4: $145
Each Pumpkin Safari admission also comes with a free pumpkin! These can be decorated at the ranch and given to our animals for enrichment or taken home.
Our popular lemur feedings will also be available for purchase upon arrival.
The Safari Snacks Food Wagon will be open for business, so be sure to come hungry!
