Busch Gardens Florida is a theme park just 1-1.5 hours drive from Orlando.
It's well worth a day's visit to this African themed park. The park caters to adults and kids alike.
Busch Gardens Tampa is primarily an animal park/safari, which is home to many African animals such as hippos, rhinos, lions, elephants and giraffes (and more!)
BGT also had enough rides to go on to fill a whole day. There's everything from the Congo River Rapids and Stanley Falls log flume ride, to the exhilerating Kumba, Gwazi, Shiekra and Montu rollercoasters.
You can take a cable car over the large plain where the animals are free to roam, or you can take a tour and see them up close. There is also a large tiger enclosure, that has rare white tigers. Be sure to visit the huge aquarium with turtles, hippos and tropical fish.
There are also many rides and roller coasters from the tame to the terrifying! 3 of Busch Gardens' roller coasters are in the top 50 best steel coasters in the world! Those being Montu (10th), SheiKra (19th) and Kumba (27th). Hold on to your hats! These rides are for coaster enthusiasts!
