What You Can Expect

Jamaica Swamp Safari Village and Falmouth Tour from Montego Bay

See wildlife up close at Swamp Safari!

Meet your friendly guide in your hotel lobby in Montego Bay and drive to nearby Falmouth, one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved colonial towns. Once a thriving Jamaican port – used for sugar and rum exportation, as well as the infamous slave trade – the streets of Falmouth are still lined with original houses and lovely old buildings. Visit St Peter’s Anglican church, built in 1795, and admire other stunning examples of Georgian architecture as you embark on a brief sightseeing tour of the scenic town.

Afterward, gain entry to Jamaica Swamp Safari Village and enjoy a guided tour of the swamp. View several species of rare local birds housed in the walk-through aviary and get up close to some fascinating animals of the Americas – including agouti, coatimundi, capuchin monkey, collared peccary, tayra and mongoose.

Meet a Jamaican boa constrictor and an 18-foot (5.5-meter) anaconda as well as the nearly extinct Jamaican coney – a guinea pig-like rodent also known as the Jamaican hutia. Be entertained at a Swamp Safari crocodile show and watch as an experienced crocodile handler calls, feeds and handles the giant crocodiles. You’ll hear tales about the crocodile-jumping scene from the James Bond movie Live and Let Die – filmed here in 1972 – in which the founder of the crocodile farm played the stunt double!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

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!
