You Can Now Feed Sloths And Pet Rhinos At Busch Gardens Tampa

If you've ever wanted to get up close with exotic wildlife, your chances have come. Two new animal experiences at Tampa Bay's Busch Gardens will get you up close and personal with sweet sloths and a beautiful stoic rhino - an animal lover's dream come true.

These 2 new experiences at Busch Gardens Tampa can be added on to your base ticket & give you a behind-the-scenes look with a couple of gentle creatures - the park's many sloths and a beautiful stoic rhino. 

The Sloth experience will get you closer to one of their most popular animals at the park - the sloths. On this 30 minute tour of the sloth habitat, you'll learn more about them from the animal's caretakers, as well as get a chance to touch, interact, and even feed them. Too cute!

The Rhino experience is a bit longer, running for 45 minutes. You'll be on a 65-acre safari across the "African Veldt" - where the rhinos roam. It will also give you a behind-the-scenes look at how the Rhinos are cared for, as well as multiple changes to touch and feed this gorgeous gentle giant.

These 2 new tours start at just $59.99 per person, with advance purchase strongly suggested to ensure a spot. Both the sloth and rhino tours require participants to be at least 8 years old, be at least 54 inches tall, and wearing close-toed shoes, as these tours include walking on some uneven terrain.

All tours will require base park admission and are not included in the tour price. If you're an annual pass holder, you receive a 10% discount on most tours. 

Busch Gardens Tampa is also running an awesome deal for a limited time on their Fun Cards; this will get you into the park for the rest of the year for less than what you'd normally pay for a single day trip. Learn more about the deal here.
