Mother's Day Adventures at Busch Gardens

May 11, 2023 by Shaniah T, Busch Gardens

When it comes to Mother’s Day, finding the right gift for mom isn’t always an easy task. Sure, you could go the sweet and simple route and get her flowers and a heartfelt card, or a dinner at her favorite restaurant—and don’t get us wrong, we’re sure she’d love all of those! But here at Busch Gardens, we like to live life on the wild side and think that the gift of thrills and adventure is truly the gift that keeps on giving! Whether the mother figures in your life prefer a more laid-back experience or a high-energy encounter, these gifts are sure to blow her away!


Feed Your Curiosity

For the animal lover moms who are eager to get in touch with their wild side, getting an inside look at the animals that we care for is a gift that will create memories to last a lifetime! With more than 200 animal species here at Busch Gardens, there is no shortage of animal experiences or tours. Embark upon a Serengeti Safari while getting a unique and up-close look at African wildlife and finish the adventure with hand-feeding giraffes! Or, go behind the scenes of Edge of Africa and get a closer look at some of the most iconic African species during the Hippo Insider Tour. Wherever your adventure takes you, rest assured– Mom will end up somewhere truly breathtaking!
