Not a Typical ZOO

We pride ourselves on not being your regular, every-day zoo. At Dade City’s Wild Things Zoo, we offer intimate, guided tours where you can ask as many questions as you can think of and get up close to all of your favorite animals, from otters to tigers. Our Dade City zoo also has a variety of supervised animal encounters. On these tours you will meet and interact with big cats, alligators, lemurs, sloths, otters, and more! Swim with tigers, otters, and even gators in our one-of-a-kind packages that let you swim with the animals. Go beyond just looking at animals and immerse yourself in one of our safaris, tours, or swims. Our Dade City zoo is unlike any other! You can even have your wedding in our gorgeous botanical garden, pavilion, or picnic area. Contact our wedding coordinator to learn more about our affordable wedding and wedding reception rates. From family fun to field trips, educational programs, and weddings, you are sure to have the time of your life at Dade City’s Wild Things Zoo!
