Private Reserve Animal Encounters

Florida is home to many exotic animals, many of which came here illegally through animal trafficking as well as through road side attractions and other unfortunate means. Throughout the state there are private reserves and rescues that care for these exotic animals. If you would like to have a personalized private zoo experience where you can learn more and interact with these animals, whether it’s for yourself or a special event, please contact your SipKlein agent who can assist you with the special arrangements.
