Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s safe to say that many of us have become pros when it comes to doing ... absolutely nothing.

But as we learn to live in a world plagued by a virus, and until traveling resumes, it’s time to find something new that’s safe but also fun.

Located in Kenansville, Florida, on its own private 85-acre savanna, Wild Florida Airboats & Gator Park offers a drive-thru safari for families and groups looking to get up close and personal with some of the globe’s most iconic animals.

This is not your average safari in which you board a truck and ride alongside other families. At Wild Florida, you become the safari guide as you drive your car alongside animals you only saw in a book or on Nat Geo.

No glass walls, minimal fencing -- it’s just you and the animals that call the safari home. Talk about a wild ride.

The safari is loaded, with more than 100 native and exotic animals roaming freely throughout the wildlife park, so be sure to look left, right and, most importantly, straight ahead as you coast through the African savanna and the forests of North America.

You might be asking yourself, why is this the perfect remedy for pandemic boredom?
