What You Can Expect

Jamaica Swamp Safari Village and Falmouth Tour from Montego Bay

See wildlife up close at Swamp Safari!

Following pickup by your local guide at your Montego Bay hotel, head to nearby Falmouth, a once-vibrant colonial port town. 

Learn about Falmouth's history and its role in the export of sugar and rum, as well as its important position in the infamous slave trade. View the original colonial-style houses and shops that line Falmouth's streets, stopping at St Peter's Anglican church, which dates from 1795. 

Next, visit Jamaica Swamp Safari Village and embark on a guided tour of the grounds. See some of the most interesting animals native to the Americas, such as agouti, tayra, mongoose and the collared peccary. Walk through the aviary as several species of rare native birds fly around you. Meet an endangered Jamaican boa constrictor and the almost-extinct Jamaican coney, or hutia, a rodent similar to a guinea pig. 

Watch as an experienced crocodile trainer and handler handles and feeds the giant animals. Learn about how James Bond's movie, Live and Let Die, was filmed at the Swamp Safari Village in 1972. The crocodile handler will regale the audience with tales of how the famous crocodile-jumping scene was filmed for the movie. 

After your 2-hour tour, the driver and guide will return you to your Montego Bay hotel.

This tour was great! Learned a lot about crocodiles, birds and other wildlife that live in Jamaica. This is more of a wildlife sanctuary. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the animals and the laws that protect some of them. Held a snake and a small crocodile seeing I felt so safe!

We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to the Swamp Safari. Our coach driver was extremely polite and happy to tell us about the local community and other tours we might like to do on the island.
On arrival we waited for about 20 minutes for our tour to start, but no problems as we had a drink at the bar. My partner is a huge James Bond fan and he thoroughly enjoyed seeing where scenes were filmed.
It was just myself and my partner on the tour, which was fab. Tour guide was really informative and helped us to thoroughly enjoy the Swamp Safari.
Highly recommended this tour. Even though it is not well advertised, it is well worth a visit.

The Jamaica Swamp Safari Village/F. Tour was EXCELLENT!. We really enjoyed seeing the crocodiles being fed and listening to our tour guide. She provided lots of information regarding the habits and behaviors of the crocodiles in particular and other animals as well. My husband, daughter and I actually held a boa constrictor for the first time-never thought I would do that. Not only did we enjoy the animal sanctuary...we had a wonderful driver that narrated our trip to the village and back. He also answered many questions and even stopped at specific points on the way back so we could take great pictures. This tour was definitely a highlight for us, during our stay in Jamaica!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2013

The guide from swamp safari village was fantastic and clearly passionate about his job, which was nice to see. However, the bus was over an hour late picking us up from the hotel, and the driver completely skipped the Falmouth Tour. He provided no commentary whatsoever - just served as a taxi to and from swamp safari village. Therefore, while I would recommend safari village to anyone, I would not recommend this tour.
