Spotlight on Florida: Myombe Reserve – Busch Gardens, Tampa

Myombe Reserve

I have always wanted to visit Africa; the closest I’ll come any time soon is visiting Busch Gardens Tampa. In the first on my series on Busch Gardens Tampa will explore the Myombe Reserve.

The Myombe Reserve features gorillas and chimpanzees in a “natural-looking” African landscape. As you walk through misty trails you encounter a lush jungle and waterfalls as you encounter each habitat.


Busch Gardens Tampa is open daily from 10am to 6pm, which varies seasonally. The park is located eight miles northeast of Tampa, Florida.
