Vote For Us on USA Today 10Best!April 4, 2018
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has been nominated for two USA TODAY 10Best Readers' Choice travel awards! Busch Gardens is one of North America's largest zoos with over 12,000 animals, and the popular 65-acre Serengeti Plain is home to many exotic African animals, including reticulated giraffes, rhinos, wildebeests, antelope and ostriches.
With adorable faces like these, it's no surprise that we were nominated for Best Zoo!
Aren't they just so cute?
The second award we were nominated for is the Best Zoo Exhibit category! We know what you're thinking: "how could you choose which exhibit is the best?! They're all so amazing!"... We agree.
The Animal Care Center is the exhibit that's been nominated! At the Animal Care Center, guests get a chance to closely observe and even take part in the animal care experience. From nutrition to treatments, X-rays to surgeries, guests can watch animal care first-hand in this state-of-the-art facility. The Animal Care Center also serves as a hospital for wildlife emergencies. Each year, hundreds of animals are brought to Busch Gardens to receive expert care by our veterinarians. Since opening in 2012, the Animal Care Center has treated over two thousand wildlife cases!
Voting is open now through Monday, April 30th, 2018 at 11:59am EDT. Voters are able to submit their vote once a day for the run of the contest.
