Return Details

Returns to original departure point
An admission ticket to the Flamingo Gardens Botanical Garden and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary is a ticket to a rare tropical paradise — 60 acres (24 hectares) to be exact. It is a not-for-profit wildlife sanctuary, aviary and botanical garden located just west of Fort Lauderdale.

The gardens were originally the property of Floyd and Jane Wray, who built a home and citrus grove here in 1933. At the time, it was at the edge of the Everglades, where they started a collection of tropical and subtropical fruit trees and shrubs. The Wray home still stands today. In fact, it’s now a museum illustrating a country home in the early 1930s.

The attractions inside Flamingo Gardens are plentiful. The Wray Botanical Collection has over 3,000 tropical and subtropical plants and trees. It is also home to some of the largest trees of their kind, according to the Florida Forest Service.

The wildlife sanctuary boasts the largest collection of native-Florida wildlife in the entire state. Check out alligators, bobcats, otters, eagles, bears, panthers, peacocks and, of course, the famous flamingos. Plus, more than 250 birds fly free in the magnificent aviary.

Catch a Wildlife Encounter Show, plus a narrated 25-minute tram tour that runs every 30 minutes throughout the day.

Hungry? Purchase sandwiches, salads, smoothies and other snacks and beverages at one of the on-site eateries — the Flamingo Cafe offers some incredible views of the gardens to boot. At the gift shop, pick up unique tropical plants and accessories for your patio.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Flamingo Gardens
Your admission to Flamingo Gardens takes you into a 60-acre (24-hectare) wildlife sanctuary with tropical botanical gardens and a large group of Florida's native rescued critters such as alligators, eagles, otters, bear, bobcats, panthers, peacocks, and, of course, flamingos. Explore the Wray Botanical Garden’s subtropical plants and trees, which features some of the largest examples of their species in Florida. Then stroll through the Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary where more than 80 native creatures live. Watch an expert handler present a wildlife encounter show featuring the birds of prey and reptiles. You'll learn more about their lives in Florida’s habitat. Stroll through theme gardens such as the Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden, where you may glimpse species like the ruby-throated hummingbird, the South American malachite butterfly, and the very rare pink-spot sulfur butterfly. See orchids, bromeliads, and other air plants that hang among the branches in a grove of live oaks that are upwards of 200 years old. Marvel at feathered friends in the 25,000-square-foot aviary, which is home to one of America’s largest collections of wading birds. Five Everglades ecosystems are represented: coastal prairie, cypress forest, mangrove swamp, subtropical hardwood hammock, and sawgrass prairie. Caribbean flamingos parade around at Flamingo Pond, a favorite spot for visitors. The Bird of Prey Center houses owls, hawks, falcons, and golden and bald eagles. You can also tour the Wray Museum, located in the former home of the family who owned this land. Built in 1933, the residence has been restored to provide a glimpse of life in a typical South Florida country home from the 1930s. Your admission includes a tram ride with informative commentary plus exclusive access to 42 remote acres of Flamingo Gardens, with some of the last original jungle growth in South Florida. Ride through a tropical rainforest, 200-year-old live oaks, and tropical fruit groves. Then pass by the wetland area where juvenile birds born in the wildlife sanctuary are released. The tour lasts approximately 25 minutes, leaving every hour throughout the day. If you get hungry during your visit, snacks and beverages can be purchased at the marketplace and cafe on the grounds.

My husband and I LOVED this experience! It was so neat to see the peacocks and iguanas freely roaming around the park, and the staff was EXTREMELY friendly and kind. My favorite part was seeing the otters swim and go down the slide:) If we lived in Florida, we would definitely purchase a membership! It’s non for profit and it’s a rehab facility for the animals there.

Great place to spend a couple hours, see and learn

Great place to spend a few hours, see sone beautiful birds and other animals and learn about plants. There is a map so you can navigate the gardens. It is well shaded throughout the walking paths. You can buy bird feed for $1. The birds are very accustomed to humans and easy to feed. There ia a tram ride that runs throughout the day that takes you around the park and explains the vegetation. We spent 3 hours,I including grabbing a snack at the food truck.

Disappointing. Engaged in a self guided tour. Did I really need Viator? The visit to this beautiful garden needed more information to appreciate the view.
