Overview

Giraffe Ranch is a beautiful wildlife preserve adjacent to the second largest wilderness area in Florida, after the Everglades. Our animals live in three distinct natural ecotypes, including upland hardwood hammocks with oak trees that are hundreds of years old and ephemeral wetlands that host hundreds of native birds. Our exotics comprise about 800 animals of 80 species and many species live in natural herds in large expanses. Learn about these animals from an expert guide from the comfort of custom 4-WD vehicles, camelback, Segway and drive-thru safaris. We’ll show you our conservation efforts and how we are helping to preserve species that are endangered or extinct in the wild. Tour reservations must be made in advance online only. Each tour lasts between an hour and an hour and a half.
