What You Can Expect

Eco-Safari at Forever Florida

- Forever Florida Coach Safari

This 2-hour eco-safari begins with a meet and greet with the expert naturalist guide, then board the tall, open-air coach vehicle to begin the journey.

Start by making a trip through the Crescent J, a scenic Florida ranch that serves as a living museum of Spanish Colonial cattle and Florida’s unique Cracker Horses — the direct descendants of those animals brought over by Ponce de Leon and other Spanish settlers in the 1500s. Learn about the Florida wilderness and wildlife — alligators, turtles, wild turkey, white-tail deer and the always-elusive Florida panther. 

Next, visit a floodplain forest and walk along a boardwalk with an up-close view of Bull Creek, a “blackwater” stream of clear, tea-colored water that’s clean enough to drink. The water and plant life here help to clean the air, so take a deep breath — this is the freshest air in all of Florida.

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

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
