What You Can Expect

Eco-Safari at Forever Florida

- Forever Florida Coach Safari

Your two-hour Forever Florida eco-safari begins when you meet your expert guide and board your safari coach – an elevated, open-air vehicle that is a cross between a Jeep and a trolley. The coach gets you 8 feet off the ground so you can enjoy great views of the wilderness around you! You’ll first head to a real Florida ranch, featuring a living museum of Spanish colonial cattle and the unique Florida Cracker Horse, a nearly extinct breed of horse known for its speed.

Your safari continues deep into the 4,700-acre Forever Florida wildlife conservation area, a piece of wilderness preserved just as nature intended. This pristine site boasts nine distinct Florida ecosystems and an endless array of natural flora and fauna, including alligators, black bears, white-tailed deer, nearly 200 species of birds and the endangered Florida panther. From your coach, you’ll have a fantastic view of the wildlife.

Mid-way through your journey, hop off the coach and stretch your legs at a boardwalk that takes you into a densely forested floodplain. This beautiful spot features crystal-clear tea-colored water, a diverse canopy full of life and cypress trees up to 500 years old.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We were spoilt as there were only 6 of us for this tour but we enjoyed every minute of it. I particularly loved the fact that we were all encouraged to watch out for wildlife and our guide was informative as well as amusing. This is a very peaceful place and a taste of something very different to the theme parks

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2014

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2011

The people that work at Eco-Safari were very nice and full of information. The grounds are nice and we learned a great deal about field burning. We only saw a few animals in the wild but it was a very cold day. The tape at the beginning was very long and made us quite sad!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2012

We enjoyed the tour but were expecting to see more of the animals as promoted in the brochure, the tour guide has never seen the puma and rarely the bobcat so false advertising is wrong
