I had been on another airboat in the Everglades 8 years ago and my friend said this would be different. Ho hum. The boat ride was short and seemed to follow a cleared path. Did see alligators. The buggy ride went past looks of animals, mostly NON native to the area. Skipped the snake show. Guy going the critter show...

1. Our GPS betrayed us by sending us back to Lauderdale from Sawgrass Expressway when we entered "Billie Swamp Safari." Enter the road address for accurate directions. Lucky we recognized the mistake before we went too far. 2. Check website for excellent coupons. Florida residents are free when accompanied by tourist. Showed FL resident ID as well as tax bill...

I Had a great time at all of the different attractions and and beautiful scenery at Billies safari although it was a bit overpriced for what I got to see, but when I went to the cafe there I received the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Not only was the place a mess with garbage everywhere, I sat...

We were attracted by the Airboat ride but the Safari offers SO much more. First Colin's talk on snakes. He was very entertaining with a wacky sense of humour but imparted some very interesting facts and knowledge. The Airboat ride lived up to expectations, exciting but also very interesting. Masses of wildlife to see, especially birds. Finally, the Swamp Buggy...

This place is really lame. We took the "buggie ride" and didn't see much of interest. The rest of the place seems run-down and tired. Half the other exhibits were empty and frankly the only part of the experience I would would speak highly of is the people working there were very nice and tried to make it fun. It's...

On arrival we were "greeted" by the two cashiers complaining back and forth to eachother about one of the buggy drivers. Nice greeting. Kind of wanted to leave then but we had driven over an hour to get there. We bought day passes and were told by one of the nice cashiers to "get out to the buggy ride right...
