“ever smelled a giraffe's grassy breath?”

Located in beautiful east Pasco County 45 minutes north of Tampa, Giraffe Ranch is on 47 acres of rolling countryside adjoining Florida's second largest wilderness area, the Green Swamp. With huge live oaks, native orchids, lush pastures and ephemeral wetlands, our ranch is also a native wildlife preserve. Every night up to 200 sandhill cranes roost on our grounds.

Giraffe Ranch offers intimate safari expeditions led by experienced driver-guides in customized 4-WD safari tour vehicles. You will be safe, comfortable and get a terrific view, as each vehicle is fitted with shade canopies and stadium seating. You will learn about native and exotic animals and their habitats from your safari guide. You will see our ongoing conservation efforts with endangered species including some that are extinct in the wild.

You may also go on a camelback expedition.On safaris are close up hands-on interactive experiences. You can feed a giraffe, pet a camel, and get right up to rhino and pygmy hippo. Our animals, both exotic and domestic, are from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas.

We have a working herd of Austrian Haflinger horses and tiny Irish Dexter cattle. Giraffe Ranch has one of the largest herds of these diminutive cattle in Florida.

Giraffe Ranch is not a zoo or theme park. It is a hands-on real working game farm and wildlife preserve where animals have room to roam.Family-owned and operated for over 13 years, Giraffe Ranch is a Florida agritourism enterprise, and is open by reservation only. We have two tours per day at 11 AM and 2 PM. Tours are strictly limited in size and are fun, educational adventures.

I highly recommend this if you're in the area, especially if you have kids. The owners are extremely passionate about these animals. I can't emphasize this enough - "Giraffe Ranch is not a zoo or theme park. It is a hands-on real working game farm and wildlife preserve where animals have room to roam."

This place is AWESOME! My whole family loved it. Do not miss out on the lemur, giraffe and rhino feeding experiences. We have been to many animal places around the U.S. and this is one of the best. Other places have animals cramped in small cages, this place tries very hard to give the animals a real place to live. It starts with the owner who used to run a zoo and is very passionate about animals. Him and his wife have tried to make this more like an authentic safari experience. While this is a little pricey at $80-$120 a person it is well worth it. Why spending thousands of dollars to fly to Africa. If you love animals give it a try!
