Ready to get really wild this summer? If so, then it’s time to take a trip to Gulf Breeze Zoo! You’ll encounter lots of “party animals” on your visit and the kids will have a blast! Here are some of the attractions you’ll definitely want to check out on your visit to the Gulf Breeze Zoo:
Feeding the Giraffes
The highlight of any visit to the Gulf Breeze Zoo is always feeding the giraffes. You can get up close and personal with these animals that reach up to 18 feet in height. You can take part in giraffe feeding at the zoo for a small fee and it’s definitely worth it to see the looks on the children’s’ faces during the experience.
Take a Behind the Scenes Tour
Speaking of the giraffes, you can take a behind the scenes tour of the giraffe exhibit and get to touch and feel the animals. Zookeepers will be on hand to educate you about these towering creatures, as well.
These tours are private thirty-minute experiences and include an experienced zoo guide along with all day admission to the zoo. Tours must be booked one week in advance, so be sure to plan ahead!
The Bird is the Word
The Gulf Breeze Zoo also holds a free-flight aviary with a diverse collection of budgie birds who will perch right on your hand. You can also feed these colorful birds while you visit the aviary.
All Aboard the Train
One of the best ways to traverse the zoo’s grounds is with a train ride on the newly renovated CP Huntington style locomotive. The fifteen-minute trip is narrated and offers a great view of the rhinoceros, deer, antelope, and zebras that roam free on the Gulf Breeze Zoo’s thirty-acre preserve.
Get the Inside Scoop
The Gulf Breeze Zoo also offers “Meet A Keeper Animal Talks” where you can listen to zookeepers give detailed information about the animals they care for. You’ll get the inside scoop on otter, lion, and giraffe keepers and find out information about how much they weigh, what their favorite foods are, and other details.
Grab A Bite to Eat
While you visit the Gulf Breeze Zoo, you’ll be happy to know you can enjoy a quick snack or delicious meal at the Watering Hole Café. Options include chicken tenders, cheeseburgers, pizza, hot dogs, and a variety of other kid-friendly food.
