What is there to do?

Love animals? Great - so do we! And so do Petting Zoo Ocala, because they are ALL about animal fun for those families who visit!

Petting Zoo Ocala offer a host of kid-friendly farm animals that kids can have hands-on experience with! They can just look if they want, or they can pet them, and even feed them! The petting zoo have all of your popular barnyard animals to encounter, from horses, goats, sheep, ducks, pigs and donkeys.

They also have some unusual creatures like the emu, peacock, llamas and alpacas too! They are all waiting to make new friends, and hopefully so are you!

Located in sunny Florida, it offers a sweet family day out for all ages. Not only are there a host of animals to enjoy, but kids can have fun actually RIDING them! They offer pony rides which is always popular, and....wait for it....CAMEL rides too!

Yep! Petting Zoo Ocala is where you can ride your very own camel. How you think it will feel riding along on that iconic desert creature? We imagine it would be a BUMPY ride!

If that wasn't all, Petting Zoo Ocala also have fun bouncy houses for those active kids to use up all of that energy, as well as a play area - and these are included in the entry price!

There are also picnic areas too for those family lunches.

So what are you waiting for? The animals are waiting to say hello - especially Annabelle the Camel.
