Rhino Endangered Species Tour

On August 31, 2018, Busch Gardens Tampa announced through their social media channels that a limited time tour would be offered combining a safari tour with an up close experience with a black rhino. The 45 minute tour cost $49.99, and was available for guests ages five and up.

A total of 13 tour dates were made available in September 2018: 6 – 8, 10, 13 – 17, and 20 – 23. The park’s website described the tour sequence as first going out to feed the giraffes, then going behind the scenes at the black rhino habitat.

It returned as the limited time Endangered Species Tour on March 29 – 31, 2019. It was done to coincide with the black rhino’s (Jody) 30th birthday.

This tour was a precursor to the new Rhino Encounter that debuted in the summer of 2019.
