Sarasota Jungle Gardens

Sarasota Jungle Gardens

Sarasota Jungle Gardens has been a tourist attraction in Sarasota, Florida since 1936. Once described as an “impenetrable swamp,” this former banana grove was converted into a beautiful botanical garden and bird and animal sanctuary that has emerged as one of the oldest continuously operating tourist attractions in Florida.  A wide variety of birds and animals include Florida’s noted parrots, pink flamingos, crocodiles, lemurs, snakes and more. All within 10 acres of lush, tropical landscaping connected by winding jungle trails. It’s one of the only places you can walk up to and feed free roaming flamingos.  The bird and reptile shows are as educational as they are entertaining and for the youngest visitors  – be sure to check the daily schedule.  Food and gifts and a playground are available on-site.  Be sure to check local guides and their website for discount coupons.
