Busch Gardens and SeaWorld are well-known for connecting guests with the natural world and all of its inspiring creatures, and Busch Gardens has recently added some new tours that will give guests a closer look at how these animals lead enriching lives at the park.

First is the Cheetah Insider Tour, during which guests will get to visit behind the scenes with one of the cheetah trainers to learn about what it takes to care for the world’s fastest land animal. Then tour participants will get to help in designing enrichment activities for the cats and observe the cheetahs from an exclusive viewing area.

Also added is the Gorilla Insider Tour, which similarly gives guests a behind-the-scenes tour of how animal care specialists look after these majestic primates. Later, guests can help in enrichment planning and then watch the gorillas from a special observation point.

Last but not least, guests can also book an Aldabra Tortoise Insider Tour, which is specially designed for young kids to meet animal care staff, prepare treats, and help in enrichment activities.

On each of the tours, guests will also learn about the greater impact of their visit on wild animals through projects supported by the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. You’ll also be reminded of the everyday actions you can take to protect and care for wild animals.

These exclusive experiences are available for purchase and reservation online or inside the park.
