This canopy walkway is wonderful - you feel as though you're walking in the clouds! So much fun for children especially. The views are amazing.

We walked this, enjoying the subtleties of life in the trees. Ferns, flowers and other plants were interesting. We also went up the tower at the end. Fun looking down on deer.

Beautiful plants and trees, walkways and towers to enjoy. Really close to nature with wild boar and alligators in nearby lake. Well kept and run with no overcrowding. This is the atmosphere you hoped for.....
