Seminole Okalee Village

Seminole Okalee Indian Village located in Hollywood. You don't feel the ambiance of your TV ideal of what an Indian Village is supposed to look like. It is more like an exhibit.

Some exhibits and some animals but not much in the way of an attraction. The staff was not very helpful.

Lots of fun for all. Ee went for the KC show, easy to park for free, huge parking buildings. Was really crowded, probably to be a Saturday and have the event. The only issue is to get a seat on one of the bars or restaurants.

Great experience with the swamps truck, excellent moments learning about the Seminoles, their history and the psesent moments of development. Nice place for some exotic food. Loved the Cemetery and the respect to dead.

...and we had the opportunity of grabbing one of them crocs (not a big one, though) that had the mouth shut thru some sort of rope! Not sure the Native Americans put up such a show every time but I was in a special visit.

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
