We read about the Leon Levy nature preserve online and had an amazing nature experience there. It is well planned and fun. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys nature.

Amazing collection thoroughly enjoyed even though it was the hot, and many plants were not in bloom. We wish we had done this tour at the beginning instead of the end of our visit to the island so that we could identify and relate to more plant species.

We visited the reserve after recommendation and we certainly weren't disappointed with the range of plant and animal life and by the quality of the stewardship. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly guide who sorted our tickets, maps, information and bug spray and explained about the trails and route. Although it was a hot day we were... More

The preserve is gorgeous - beautiful exhibits and lots of info on a variety of plants. We didn't see a lot of flowers, but the foliage was very pretty and the paths fun to walk on.

We visited the Preserve in August as a group of several families with teenage kids. We were impressed! The grounds are very well maintained and very educational. As you walk the beautiful paths though the Bahamian jungle, you learn about all the native plants and their medicinal use and about the geology and history of the Bahamas. The highlight is... More

I visited the Leon Levy Preserve with my family, and everyone (kids 9,11,16,17) enjoyed it, very much. The beaches on the island were great, of course, but the preserve gave us a chance to experience the feeling of the interior of the island, in a beautiful re-creation of it's native state. Check out the view from Ethan's Tower :)
