Located just 45 minutes north of Tampa, Giraffe Ranch is situated on 47 acres of rolling countryside adjoining Florida’s second-largest wilderness area, the Green Swamp. With towering live oaks, native orchids, lush pastures and ephemeral wetlands, this native wildlife preserve offers animals room to roam while serving as a licensed working ranch. Giraffe Ranch provides four safari options. A driver-guide in a customized four-wheel-drive vehicle leads the signature vehicle safari experience. Under the truck’s shaded canopy, guests are safe, cool and comfortable year-round, and everyone has the perfect view. Visitors can feed the giraffes and see other animals, including zebras, camels, rhinos, pygmy hippos, Austrian Haflinger horses and tiny Irish Dexter cattle.
