Animal Trek upgrade experience at Discovery Cove

Animal Trek

Experience a private tour alongside our Ambassadors that takes you behind-the-scenes to experience up-close opportunities to meet birds and small mammals.

Discovery Cove Orlando is home to one of Florida’s most immersive animal tours, Animal Trek. Led by our animal experts, this approximately 30-minute tour takes you on a journey off the public pathways to meet our amazing animals.

Your trek takes place in a lush private oasis where you'll come face to beak with a variety of bird species including macaws, a rescued screech owl, and more, creating the perfect moment for a photo.

From there, you'll continue this unique experience with a chance to meet Discovery Cove Animal Ambassadors such as an anteater, armadillo, kinkajou, or sloth. Tours start between 12:00p.m. - 12:30p.m. daily.
