On Saturday, 6 of us jumped in a rental mini van and headed south down I-75 for a day-trip from Tampa. The trip was mostly for my aunt who was born in Florida, but had never been on Alligator Alley or taken an airboat ride....More

We first planned to go the the Shark Valley for an airboat tour when friends recommended the Billie Swamp Safari. Really good experience: nice and cheap airboat tour on small boats, going onto Everglades but as well under a forest like jungle. We saw alligators,...More

Nice park. Have caged animals and plenty of gators. Nice gator show. Visit the Sweetwater Café there. They have primitive huts you can stay in. Good air boat ride with lots to see.

We took six adults here for the day in preference to driving hours to Everglades city. Didn't expect much. BOY! Was I wrong ! Scrupulously clean, beautifully maintained grounds, healthy animals, knowledgeable staff. Okay the airboat and buggy rides were not so thrilling and animal-rich...More

Wait is long. Capt promised to take us because we were waiting four hours. Got back from buying tickets and he left, had to wait another 30 minutes. Such a waste of time and no compassion! Would never return here.

Was pleasantly surprise how clean and interesting this was. Wasn't expecting much from something called a "Swamp Safari", but was way better than I expected. The swamp buggy ride was fun and very interesting and the air boat ride was a blast. Can go there...More

Just get there early I think at 9 and go into shop to get on the list. You can see animals while you wait. And call to be sure there's one at 10;30 or 10 am. Leave 25 minutes minimum to drive into the place off I 75.
