Enjoy Campfire Storytelling and a Nighttime Swamp Buggy Tour on this Twilight Expedition at Billie Swamp Safari.
Your journey begins around a campfire under a Chickee in the Native Village. Your tour guide will share stories and legends from the people of this land, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, as tribal elders have done for hundreds of years.
After storytelling, embark on the swamp buggy tour in the early evening hours and travel through the park exploring hardwood forests and pop ash ponds. As daylight fades, the darkness transforms the landscape into a mysterious and magical place. In the dark, animal behaviors change, the sweet smell of night flowers and the orchestra of nature’s sounds fills the air.
With a spotlight in hand, our guide will navigate the trails as you look for what may be lurking in the trees or around the next bend. The beam of the light catches the reflection of animal eyes shining back at you in colors of amber, green, or red. Our preserve is filled with hundreds of animals, some hide from predators in their natural habitats. You may spot wildlife such as deer, raccoon, or wild pigs moving through the night and some resting under the trees as a group but always on alert. Panthers and bears are in active hunting mode during these hours; you may be lucky enough to witness a rare sighting.
Each tour is unique and totally predicted by nature, but we can guarantee it is an experience like no other!
