The plains of Africa, the Amazon rainforest, and the Australian Outback can all be found in southwest Miami-Dade county. Zoo Miami is an oasis of wilderness tucked away in a concrete jungle. And like all great wild places, they need brave adventurers to explore them and tell their story.

Zoo Miami is offering a wonderful opportunity to bring your whole family to the zoo during $5 Days from July 4th-8th, presented by Ford Motor Company. But that’s just the start of your adventure.

During $5 Days, zoo visitors can join the Ford Photo Safari, where 10 lucky families will win Family Annual Passes to Zoo Miami each day. All you have to do is follow the instruction in the image above – find the Safari Spots, take a wild picture with your family, and share them with South Florida Ford via or on Twitter @Soflaford. Remember, 10 winners will be announced daily from July 4th-8th, so post your pictures right away.

Leading up to $5 Days, Ford gave one lucky South Florida family a once in a lifetime VIP tour of the zoo led by Ron Magill, Director of Communications for Zoo Miami. Getting a behind-the-scenes look at the zoo with the larger than life Ron Magill was an experience they won’t soon forget.

We’ll see you at Zoo Miami. Avoid the lines and buy your $5 Day passes online.
