Dade City - Giraffe Ranch
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.
