The Great Migration

Each year, millions of wildebeests, zebras, and antelopes traverse East Africa's wide open grasslands in a continuous, circular trek in search of fresh grazing lands and water, pausing only for a few months when females are giving birth. Along the way, hundreds of thousands of the herd fall prey to stalking predators, including lions, crocodiles, cheetahs, and hyenas. Witness how these millions of free-roaming animals make their way through the peaks and perils of Africa's savannah terrain, from the Maasai Mara river in Kenya to the majestic landscape of Tanzania's Serengeti, in search of a better life across the animal kingdom.


Shark Dive

Travel with the marine biologists of Bimini Shark Lab as we search for the mythic underwater strip called Tiger Beach. Learn about the behaviors of tiger and hammerhead sharks closer than you could imagine.

Experience this dynamic encounter that captures up-close encounters with not only Tiger Sharks but also Hammerheads and even features the world’s first VR POV Shark Cam from a camera mounted on the dorsal fin of the shark.


Swimming with the Humpbacks

Swimming with Humpbacks is a dynamic educational journey, following a marine biologist who sets out to learn about the behavior of mother humpback whales and their calves. Searching undersea and in the air, the team tracks down humpbacks to the South Pacific near the island of Tonga. We find ourselves in the middle of a mating ritual, then finally we come upon a newborn and its mom. We see how the behavior of the mother evolves as the calf gets older - to the point that the calf will actually play with us.


Gorilla Trek

Travel to the extinct volcanoes of Rwanda in central Africa. Trek with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Tara Stoinski, CEO of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, up 10,000 feet to visit with a remarkable family of mountain gorillas. Witness for the first time in 3D virtual reality the unique family dynamics that pits one silverback mountain gorilla against another for control of the gorilla family. There are just over one thousand mountain gorillas left in the world and it is vitally important to study the behavior of these amazing animals so that we can help save them from extinction.


Dinosaur Safari Adventure

Introducing this amazing Virtual Reality adventure! Step back in time as you travel to the Cretaceous period. Unspoiled locations provide a gorgeous backdrop as you encounter prehistoric predators such as Tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptors and try to withstand a heart-stopping attack by creatures from long ago.

About Us

Dog Policy

We love all animals, wild and domesticated. Unfortunately due to a high number of recent incidents with dogs, our insurance company has advised us that we can no longer allow dogs, or other personal pets, on the Reptile Gardens grounds. ADA approved service dogs are, of course, allowed although there are three areas where they are not allowed for their safety and the safety of our animals. We do offer a shaded grassy area adjacent to our parking lot for walking your dog. We only ask that your pet be leashed and attended to at all times. You are welcome to come and go from the park as often as you like to tend to your dog. For more information, visit our FAQ Page
