“Just fantastic”

Okefenokee Pastimes Private Guided Tours
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Get there early (I keep saying this in reviews). We were a bit extreme - we'd booked whilst over there via the internet and arranged for a 7.30am start (sunup in October) which meant a 90 min drive from our accommodation. We were met and made very welcome by Steve and Jo (apologies if I've got names wrong) who drove us straight down into the park as they're lodgings are immediately opposite the gates. So were on the water as the sun came up and you are transported round this amazing place in a boat with an electric motor so it's quiet. Steve is also a very knowledgeable and friendly guide so he'll go out of his way to get you sightings of the animals and birds in the swamp. Some of it is waterway and other parts, the prairies are more open with trees and flowers. The water is quite dark stained so reflects like a mirror.
Tips? Early start recommended - we had the waterways to ourselves for nearly three hours and the early light is lovely. I understand it gets busy later in the day and in summer. It can get chilly at the start and end of the season so take a warm top and jacket.
This trip was so enjoyable and having a knowledgable guide invaluable so I will definitely recommend Okefenokee Pastimes.
