Busch Gardens Africa in Tampa is the ultimate family adventure park, featuring an unparalleled combination of animal encounters, live entertainment and world-class thrill rides.
- Family friendly
One of the top zoos in North America, Busch Gardens brings you face-to-face with more exotic and endangered animals than any destination outside of Africa. Live shows, including the Broadway-style KaTonga - Musical Tales from the Jungle, carry you to the heart of the jungle through music and dance. And prepare yourself for heart-pounding excitement with SheiKra - America's first dive coaster.
Discover a colorful village nestled among towering trees, explore a 3-story play land of climbing nets and exploration tunnels, soar above the treetops on a zip line adventure or launch into the sky from inside a 35-foot (10 meter) waterfall. Then, come face-to-face with orangutans and test your strength in a tug of war with a Bengal tiger, all in Jungala - the only jungle in the world that plays with you.
For additional fun, choose from combo ticket options with SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica!
At SeaWorld Orlando, every encounter is a new adventure when you come face-to-face with the friendly dolphins, magnificent white beluga whales and playful penguins of SeaWorld Orlando. Experience life far under the sea as you feed dolphins, get up close to a polar bear and count the teeth on a shark! Of course, there's also the mythical rush of the Journey To Atlantis® water coaster and Shamu®!
Introducing Aquatica - a whimsical, one-of-a-kind waterpark that's only in Orlando and could only come from SeaWorld. One river floats you through an undersea world of colorful fish, and another races you into rolling rapids. Slides spin and soak you, and the incredible signature ride of two awesome, enclosed tube slides sends you speeding through a lively lagoon filled with playful, black and white Commerson's dolphins. Delight in the serene-to-extreme waters in the gigantic double wave pools and soak in the sun (or the cooling shade) on the white sand beach.

Edge of Africa
Embark on a walking safari through Edge of Africa and encounter exotic African animals in naturalistic habitats, including hippos, lions, hyenas, lemurs, meerkats, crocodiles and lappet-faced vultures. Set your own pace as you explore this attraction themed around an abandoned African fishing village.
Observe hundreds of exotic animals from a variety of perspectives. Enjoy a passing scene from our Serengeti Express Railway. Get a bird's eye view from the Skyride. Take a truck tour of the plains on a Serengeti Safari. Or go exploring along scenic walkways that feature rolling landscapes, high-ground vistas and lush vegetation all reflecting the natural beauty of the wide open African wilderness.
Enter a lush forest habitat where gorillas and chimpanzees can be found enjoying life to the fullest as they live and play in a natural environment. One look into their eyes, and you'll feel the kind of connection that quickly dissolves any barrier between our species. Peer through the mists and fog of Myombe's Great Ape Domain for a close-up look into the world of fascinating and majestic animals that most people see only in books and documentaries, and feel your world get at once larger and smaller.
This elegant and inspiring show delivers 35 minutes of spectacles, songs and a rich tapestry of color and sound. KaTonga takes you on a journey to the heart of Africa in a musical celebration of animal folklore. It follows a day in the lives of aspiring storytellers, called Griots, as they strive to become masters of this ancient art. To accomplish this rite of passage, the performers evoke traditional African stories that mesmerize and entertain.
Comic genius Leslie Nielsen stars as Captain Lucky, a misfit pirate leading a hapless crew and his loyal first mate, Pierre (played by Eric Idle, author of the show), on a side-splitting adventure. Pirates brings the latest special-effect technology together with multi-sensory theatrical effects to keep the audience guessing what might happen next. Climb aboard for a comical adventure filled with a shipload of excitement and surprises.
After a 200 foot climb, this cunning coaster takes you just over the edge of a true 90-degree drop. And stops. For 4 seconds, you find yourself looking down - straight down - at the ground below as you're held suspended above it. Then, like the sub-Saharan bird of prey for which it's named, you plunge straight toward the ground, racing at speeds of more than 70 miles per hour. An Immelmann loop and a second vertical dive into an underground tunnel end with a surprise twist for those who look on - because with SheiKra, even they cannot escape.
A colossal coaster with a record-breaking six fly-bys, Gwazi still reigns as one of the largest and fastest wooden double roller coasters on the planet and one of the favorites at Busch Gardens. With crossing speeds of 100 miles an hour, it's easy to see why this legendary coaster has been recognized with so many consecutive awards by coaster enthusiasts.
Hop aboard a wild jeep tour that takes you through the wilds of Africa. It's an off-road adventure that combines the thrill of an African safari with the exhilaration and drama of an amazing water adventure, Rhino Rally takes you up-close to exotic animals and to the edge of your seat as you trek across the wide open veldt, then race to cross a rising river.
If you're crazy about coasters, Montu has your lucky number: 7. That's the number of insane inversions you'll do on this monster coaster - one of the tallest and longest inverted coasters in the world. Named for an ancient Egyptian god of war, conquering this coaster is a challenge that will test your courage at every turn. Consistently rated as one of the top steel coasters in the world for its unique Batwing inversion and the intense 3.85 Gs you'll feel blazing through this thrilling track, it's easy to see what keeps this beast on the coaster enthusiasts' favorites list year after year.
Travel to Timbuktu and you'll find young kids' favorite ride in the park, Cheetah Chase. This fun-filled family coaster is inspired by the playful side of one of the coolest and the fastest cats on the planet. This wild ride zips, zooms and climbs five stories into the air before bringing riders back down in a roar of laughter.
It is said that if you can hear the roar of a lion in the distance, you have crossed into his territory. And have been warned. The natives call his roar the Kumba. And you'll feel his breath on the back of your neck from the moment you step aboard the mighty coaster that earned his name. Consistently voted one of the world's top roller coasters by enthusiasts around the world, this legendary beast takes you from hair-raising heights to absolute weightlessness through seven inversions, all with the grace and speed of this magnificent predator.
