I see on their web site that "Seminole Okalee Indian Village is currently closed and will re-open in the Summer of 2015 at a new location." Please note I did NOT visit it but thought useful to draw attention to this temporary closure.

This place is dirty and not kept up. It is totally a tourist trap where they do not seem to care about the animals. It is not " a theme park" they try to be more like original old Florida, but they fall short on up keep and value. This I vote as a STAY AWAY!

I admit, it is dirty, rickety and pretty small. But, it looks the way Florida looked when we invaded this state. They treat the animals as their children, but cautiously. This is not an overgrown tourist trap nor does it want to be. This is more like a little village that put a fence up a 100 years ago and... More

This is the way Native Americans, who are supposed to love and respect animals, treat them? Like a road side zoo? I was horrified when I saw the conditions these animals are kept in. There is a bear living in a caged area under the parking garage! No sunlight, just exhaust fumes! All the enclosures are too small, no signage,... More

While the website proclaims an authentic Native American Village with live animals, it is nothing more than a minor replica with a small zoo. Definitely not worthy of the admission fee nor the half hour car ride I made with five young grandchildren. Since I had called the day before to ask questions, I felt terribly deceived. The children were... More

Brought my kids to see this 'village' today and all it really was, was a bunch of miserable animals including a black bear! The cats were pacing in their cages completely stressed out. A beautiful hawk kept in a small cage too which was awful. But the worst part was the bear, just lying there completely miserable. To me this... More

This was advertised as a Seminole "village", but basically it is just a tiny side attraction at a Seminole owned Hard Rock casino. There are a few cages with a lonely bear, a raccoon, red tail hawk, snakes, an African Serval, a pair of panthers, iguanas, alligators and two incredibly cute river otters. As far as Seminole education, there is... More

We decided to visit the Indian village since we had a few hours to kill and the pamphlet looked interesting. We were told by the cashier that they had black bears, birds or prey, alligators, panthers, etc , demonstrations of beading, cooking in the Seminole village and you could interact with the animals. We paid and entered the park. Walking... More
