Worth a trip. Very helpful staff. Our favorites were the airboat ride and safari wagon ride. The alligator show was great as well. I would give it 5 stars if not for the poor customer service experience when purchasing tickets.

We spent the day here. We rode the air boat twice and learned about the everglades. The mud buggie ride through the safari preserve was very interesting and the animals had a large area to roam. We saw several water buffalo along the way. Both animal presentation were very informative and we were able to touch the alligator. While walking... More

Visited in July with all my family it is a good place to visit even if off the beaten track Recommend the air boat and also the buggies worth seeing and also the critter show You however do pay for the day and it is not big enough to spend the time there which makes it slightly expensive

It's pretty deserted, most of it's closed and it's not worth the money or the long drive. In the season it's much better. Our airboat ride was at 2pm only lasted 20 min and wasn't in a really that interesting. A few birds, no alligators and an Asian water buffalo. The buggy ride wasn't until 5 pm, was cancelled due...

We did not stay at motel but did mud buggies and airboat rides. It's totally in the middle of nowhere but we thought worth it after we did everything. We had great guides on both rides, and animal show was very interesting. The guides explained all animals and plants that were on the property. We ate lunch there two, a... More

See what Florida nature is all about at this middle of nowhere little gem. An off road buggie will take you for a ride through unspoiled Florida terrain. This is a perfect place to learn about the history of American Indians, learn about indigenous plants and trees and their use by native people. See descendants of first horses and buffaloes... More

I had been on another airboat in the Everglades 8 years ago and my friend said this would be different. Ho hum. The boat ride was short and seemed to follow a cleared path. Did see alligators. The buggy ride went past looks of animals, mostly NON native to the area. Skipped the snake show. Guy going the critter show... More

1. Our GPS betrayed us by sending us back to Lauderdale from Sawgrass Expressway when we entered "Billie Swamp Safari." Enter the road address for accurate directions. Lucky we recognized the mistake before we went too far. 2. Check website for excellent coupons. Florida residents are free when accompanied by tourist. Showed FL resident ID as well as tax bill...

I Had a great time at all of the different attractions and and beautiful scenery at Billies safari although it was a bit overpriced for what I got to see, but when I went to the cafe there I received the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Not only was the place a mess with garbage everywhere, I sat... More
