    Cute and Loving Experience!

    My fiancé proposed me at Zoo Tampa on December 4, 2020, and it was an unforgettable moment! They pretended to be just a regular Koala encounter but actually it was a surprise and a very well planned proposal. My fiancé told me that the personnel at Zoo Tampa was extremely helpful, nice and kind. We are highly recommend this facility!

    Fantastic!

    It was easy to set up! Every one at the zoo was prompt, professional, and available for every question I had. The experience was amazing and my fiancé loved it.
