In response to COVID-19, we now offer guided wildlife drive-thru safari tours on our ranch. View and learn about the animals from the comfort of your own vehicle! Your expert guide, in a lead vehicle, will speak to you through your FM radio through their FM transmitter. This approach is unique among drive-thru safaris.
CAMEL SAFARI TOUR
- Rider Ages 3+
Enjoy a Camel-Back Safari!
Game viewing on camels is simply sublime. Rediscover the experiences our human ancestors had with these amazing animals, viewing magnificent herds of game animals from your bestial perch. Become a part of the herd, joining our exotic animals in their natural state, on our Camel Safari Tour.
Camel safaris are led by two experienced tour guides/camel handlers. We have dromedary (one-hump) and Bactrian (two-hump) camels.
Our camels are treated with kindness and respect—and they love their jobs. They line up at the gate each morning eager to go on safari! After their safaris, each camel returns to the herd in their large grassy pasture with trees and open sky for rest, play, and recharging. Our camels are athletes, and they live long and healthy lives.
Camels have been domesticated for over 6,000 years and have a complex and mutually beneficial relationship with humankind. In our three decades of working with camels, we have developed the only full-on camel backed game-viewing safari that we know of outside of Africa.
What kind of animals do you have?
Giraffe Ranch has hundreds of animals representing 70+ different species all housed under huge, ancient oaks and grass lands in this beautiful environment that is right out of an African safari. Because our property consists of about 50 acres of pristine wilderness, we’re able to house a variety of exotic species such as giraffe, zebra, bongo antelope, otters, lemurs, hippos, pere’ Davids deer, warthogs, monkeys, and more! You’ll also have a chance to see a variety of native wildlife.
I do not want to pay for a tour; can I just come and feed the animals?
No. The optional add-ons are only available with the purchase of one of our safaris.
Which tour time is best to view the animals?
All of our tour times are great! The animals that we house here are specifically chosen because they do well in central Florida’s climate.
Where do your animals come from?
Because we have so much space for our animals, babies are a very common thing! Most of our animals are born onsite. We buy, sell, and trade with other licensed facilities.
What should I wear?
Although not required, we recommend close-toed shoes. We go rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather.
Can I bring my pet?
We do not allow any unauthorized animals on the premises, which includes our driveway and parking lot. Please leave all dogs, cats, and other furry critters at home.
Will I see every animal during the tour?
Our guides make every effort to encourage our residents to greet our tour groups but the distance at which they are viewed can vary due to the large areas our animals inhabit.
Other things to know
We do not do special pricing for children, infants, seniors, etc.
