Sarasota Jungle Gardens

3701 Bay Shore Road

A tropical adventure awaits all who visit Sarasota Jungle Gardens. One of the oldest continuously operating attractions in Florida, Sarasota Jungle Gardens evokes memories of Florida days gone by, full of flora, fauna and fun, yet remains current and exciting for today's families, locals, and tourists alike.

A wide variety of birds and animals – many of them rescued – includes Florida's noted pink flamingos, parrots, crocodiles, lemurs, snakes and more. All nestled 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.

Daily bird and reptile shows are as educational as they
are entertaining and for the youngest visitors, our newly renovated playground will provide countless hours of fun.

Hungry? Don't worry, as Sarasota Jungle Gardens offers a full menu of sandwiches, salads, snacks, and ice cream in our Flamingo Café with both indoor air-conditioned and outdoor dining available.

Sarasota Jungle Gardens' mission statement:

"Sarasota Jungle Gardens is a uniquely pleasing environment that features native and exotic plants and animals in an intimate setting of natural beauty. We are dedicated to conserving this environment and providing our guests with an educational and entertaining visit. Our guests will experience a visit that will always be enhanced by courteous, helpful service and a clean, safe atmosphere."
