A Day at Billy Swamp Safari

 

Welcome to Billie Swamp Safari


on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation.

This is a Joint meet up event

We invite you to explore 2,200 acres
of untamed Florida Everglades
preserved in its pristine state by

the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

SWAMP SAFARI DAY PACKAGE


Arrive early (10:00) and take a day to explore the natural side of South Florida at Billie Swamp Safari on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation. With our Day Package enjoy a four adventure that includes plenty of educational opportunities, sightseeing and family fun to give you a day to remember.


Climb aboard a Swamp Buggy vehicle and bounce through the Big Cypress wetlands on a 40 - 60 minute guided tour as creatures prowl through the Florida everglades on the 2,200-acre preserve. See native and exotic wildlife such as ostriches, water buffalo, bison, deer and more. Perhaps spot a lurking Florida Panther or Black Bear. See living history and Florida Seminole’s native culture at an Indian camp in the hammock and learn about plant uses for survival long ago.

Then zip through the swamp on an Airboat for a 20-minute ride along the Florida waterways; see alligators and birds in their natural environment. Enjoy the scenic view of nature, turtles and fish as you enter the cypress canopy.

Back on land take a seat and enjoy or Alligator and Snake Show and the Swamp Critter Show. Both of these shows provide you with an excellent way to learn more about Florida's natural wildlife and local fauna.


Swamp Water Cafe

After feeding your adventurous side,
you may have worked up an appetite
that only the Swamp Water Cafe can curb.
Try delicious alligator tail nuggets,
frog legs or American fare for the faint of heart.

We secured an amazing price of $35.95 per person
for this $49.99 package!  WOW!

    • Jimmy

      Sorry about the confusion. The system had defaulted that the location was in Fort Lauderdale rather than Clewiston. Just follow the directions that we have in the information above or call me to arrange carpooling. We will be carpooling from I-595 and Hiatus Road!
