Sarasota Jungle Gardens Flamingo Cam
Sarasota Jungle Gardens is the area’s best kept secret in wild and natural attractions. This lush, ten-acre tropical oasis is the home of Florida’s iconic pink flamingos, who are begging you to come play for the day. Set foot in this local jungle and your senses will come alive with the primitive sounds of over 150 native and exotic animals. Breathe in the sweet, heady smells that the bright, vibrant flowers and shrubs provide. Take a look around and wonder, for a second, if you’ve found a passage back in time, where magic and fantasy still do exist.
Sarasota Jungle Gardens has been operating and delighting people of all ages since the 1930s, when two local men dreamt of a tropical attraction that would dazzle attendees with different species of wildlife in a jungle setting fit for Tarzan. Without the need for fancy exhibits, man-made structures, or over-the-top pricing, Sarasota Jungle Gardens has stood the test of time. For people wanting to experience the “real Florida,” this is a fascinating destination, and is sure to delight and excite all who venture in.
Thousands of varieties of plants and trees provide eye candy for visitors with meandering old oak trees, banana trees, staghorn ferns and more. A couple of rarities you will find here even include the Australian Nut Tree, along with the largest Norfolk Island pine found in Florida. Wander through the trails, and expect the unexpected when you immerse yourself in the habitat of birds of prey, different species of parrots and macaws, primates, small mammals, dozens of snakes, lizards, iguanas, alligators, crocodiles and other reptiles. Many animals are donated or adopted by the facility, which provides a safe environment for the creatures, and is proud to exceed USDA and Florida Fish and Wildlife Guidelines. At the end of the day, take a few moments to relive the day’s adventures with an ice cream cone or an icy cold soda from the café, or perhaps pick up an inexpensive souvenir at the gift shop.
Step back in time and thrill your children and guests with a visit to Sarasota’s Jungle Gardens. Take a snapshot of your loved ones making friends with the pink flamingos or chasing a lizard. See them absorb the sights and sounds with wonderment and awe. Make a memory that will live on forever, as you run through the jungle with a wild heartbeat. It is a jungle out there, folks, that is true. But there’s only one Sarasota Jungle Gardens and it is calling you with a hoot and a howl.
Founded in 1940, Sarasota Jungle Gardens is one of the oldest attractions in the state of Florida, and the only Zoological attraction in the area. Over the years, Sarasota Jungle Gardens has maintained its "Old Florida" charm and keeps children and adults alike remembering the days that have since gone by.
Famous for its "free roaming" Flamingo's, Sarasota Jungle Gardens has a vast array of exotic birds and reptiles that will entertain and educate for hours as you walk through the lush 10 acre tropical landscape. Take a break from the day and enjoy one of their delicious sandwiches or ice cream from The Flamingo Cafe, or let your little ones play on our newly designed "Kiddie Jungle" with a brand new playground!
Sarasota Jungle Gardens is open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Closed Christmas and Thanksgiving Day
