  • This is one of the best little zoo's in Florida. I'm in love with the old "mom and pop" style zoo's. A more hands on approach. A living and caring staff, who genuinely care about the animals, there ne...  more »
  • I wasn't sure what I'd find since I'd read a lot of mixed reviews but I thought I'd see for myself. We were on vacation and thought it might be a good way to spend a day. Everyone was so knowledgeable...  more »
  • Love Dade City Wild Things! The grounds and gardens are just beautiful and the animals are amazing. The tour guides are knowledgeable and often share the stories behind each animal. They offer the best summer camp my child has ever been to! We have also been to the “so-called competitor “ and would gladly go to Dade City Wild Things any day over going to Tampa. The owners at Dade City Wild Things are friendly and caring. They know each animal by name and more importantly, the animals know them! It is very clear that the animals love the owners and that they are well cared for.
  • Having been to Dade city wild Things 3 times I can only say what a great place and brilliant staff and Family. The animals are so well loved and looked after. You can tell they all love the animals by the way the animals react with their trainers. The family home always has little babies in it, doing 2 hourly feeds night and day, that's not a job it's a lifestyle. We did things at the zoo I could only dream of doing. Seeing my dad's face when he got to play, Swim and feed a tiger cub was the best, awesome experience. A dream come true for him. I would recommend Dade city Wild things to everyone.
  • I have been to Dade City Wild Things on a number of occasions, and it has been a wonderful experience every time. The people who run Dade City Wild Things are wonderful people that love their animals and treat them with love and care, they are very knowledgeable about all the animals in their care and they are willing to share their knowledge with the people that go there, and I would recommend them to anyone. It is fun for the whole family young and old, and you come away with such wonderful memories to cherish for life..all these one star reviews are just animal activists trying to make a wonderful place look bad with lies. Dade City Wild Things love their animals and treats them with love and care. Don't believe the rubbish they write..
  • Dade City's Wild is a very nice place and the animals are very well cared for and loved. You will have a great experience and leave with wonderful memories. The place is clean and they are regulated by state and federal agencies .They are being targeted by animal activists who pay for negative comments on line. I have visited quite a few times and always have a great time. The swims are awesome and the photos are really nice. Great place for a reasonable price.
  • I have had the dream to hold a baby tiger for forever and it finally happened! Nothing can compare to this wonderful experience. All the negative reviews make me sad because the caretakers really do care about the animals and treat them well. The animals positively respond to their caretaker. I enjoyed every minute of my experience here! I wish I lived closer because I would come all the time! Love. Love. Love. This place!
