Have you ever fed a giraffe? Have you ever smelled their grassy breath? These are memories that will last a lifetime. At Giraffe Ranch in Dade City, Florida you'll experience first hand, the lives of giraffe and other species from around the world living under huge live oaks and open grasslands in a setting that is right out of Africa.
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, complete with huge live oaks, native orchids, lush pastures and ephemeral wetlands.
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. There are no crowds and no lines. Here you will enjoy a natural adventure! Our knowledgeable and experienced guides will tour you through the ranch and introduce you to zebra, ostrich, warthog, pygmy hippopotamus, rhinoceros, and large herds of deer and antelope. There are a variety of ways to experience Giraffe Ranch:

  • Customized Vehicle Safari

  • Optional Extras: ring-tailed lemur feeding, camel mini-safari, bongo feeding, otter feeding, and rhino encounter
