We chose to do a tram rather than an airboat & we were so pleased we did. We had a lovely guide, Andrea, I think was her name. She was extremely informative & not too serious. We saw lots of alligators & they would stop...More

We booked the earliest tour we could following other reviewers advice and they were right. It gets busy here and the carpark is relatively small in the National Park. When we left at lunchtime many people were parked out on the main road which was...More

Riding bicycles around the tram route (15 miles) gave us a wonderful chance to do the loop on our own time and to stop and see the wildlife. We saw countless crocodiles up close (they ignored us) as well as countless birds such as the...More

The tram tour is run independent of the national park so there is a separate charge for the tour however it is worth the price. The two hour tour takes you through the park. The tram driver and guide are great at pointing out wildlife...More
