Reviews for Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens

Rating: 5 stars  

A hidden gem in an area filled that's filled with theme parks. The Zoo takes you back to Florida's beautiful scenery and let's you escape with some family fun that everyone will enjoy. My personal favorite was having the opportunity to hand feed giraffes!

If you are in Orlando, you HAVE to go to Central Florida Zoo! They offer something for all ages, not to mention you get the opportunity to feed the tallest land animal in the world! So many animals to see and my nephew absolutely loved the splash pad to cool off after the hot summer day. Definitely a must-go!

My family and I visited the zoo, and we had a fantastic time! The staff was friendly, the grounds were clean and well kept and there was so much to see. We cannot wait to go back, and all who are in the central Florida area, or come hear to visit I make sure they know to visit.

Central Florida's best kept secret. Talk about value for your money. So many fun interactive activities to do. I can't wait to take my grandbaby when she visits.

An amazing zoo. A lot of people don't realize that this in Orlando, but when we found it, we spent the whole day there exploring - our kids love it! Really cool butterfly area and you get to see a large variety of animals up close and personal - we'll be back for sure!

Absolutely LOVE the Zoo! It's the perfect destination and day out for any family. There are so many animals to see and interact with, plus there's a splash pad for the little ones to cool off on a hot Florida day. I was recently given a tour and it's inspiring how passionate the zoo team is. Their knowledge and excitement is contagious. I highly recommend a visit as there is always something new to do at the Zoo.

The Central Florida Zoo is a great place for a nice afternoon. There are a lot of animals to see and a lot of animals to interact with (some for an extra fee) such as giraffe feeding and petting zoo animals. The zoo also does a lot to help with breeding endangered animals. They just had an endangered lemur born.

We love the zoo!
Family of 12 (going on 14 ~ with two more grandchildren due this year!)
The animals are well cared for and the grounds are well kept. The staff are friendly and always willing to share their knowledge and passion for the animals. The different events hosted at the zoo are fun and educational. Our grandchildren love the splash area. We never miss a train ride and a spin on the carousel. Great place to take out of town visitors!

I went to this zoo just for a day visit and ended up upgrading to an annual pass when I left. The zoo is very interactive and the staff is very friendly and knowledgable. I have yet to go to a zoo where you can interact with Indian rinos.
