Busch Gardens Tampa - $60 night safari

Perhaps in answer to Disney's new Wild Africa Trek, BGT has a new safari, with a nighttime examination of animals. Park admission is oddly not required, and it's only $60 per adult (MUCH cheaper than Disney's trek).

From the BGT blog:

Special Valentine-Themed Serengeti Night Safari Showcases Nighttime Behaviors of Animals

It's only two weeks away -- do you have your Valentine's Day date plans in order?

Celebrate Valentine’s weekend with a romantic adventure into the African night, complete with unforgettable experiences and delicious treats on Busch Gardens Serengeti Night Safari.

Venture through Edge of Africa to witness the active nighttime behaviors of hippos, lions and hyenas, lit only by moonlight and handheld lanterns.

Then, on the Serengeti Plain, use night-vision monoculars and special filtered lighting to view free-roaming herds of giraffes, zebra, rhinos and other intriguing African animals. After your amazing animal adventure, cozy up around a roaring bonfire to hear colorful tales of African folklore.

This nighttime experience begins and ends in the exclusive Safari Club. You will enjoy savory appetizers and adult beverages before the excursion, and a special nightcap completes the evening with champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries.

21 and over only.
