This is a large botanical garden and wildlife preserve with a cell phone-guided driving tour and map available. I enjoyed the trees and lagoons just as much without listening to the whole tour. It's well worth the price of admission, and the opportunity to stroll and linger among the beautiful old live oaks may be one of the most relaxing experiences of your Louisiana visit.

Worth the $8 entrance fee. The 3 miles loop passes through some very camera friendly grounds. You can walk it if you'd like the excercise and better perspective. Very well maintained.

If you like critters, you'll love Jungle Gardens. Gators are a plenty, as are birds of every kind. Don't worry about snakes. We didn't see any.

The real beauties are the live oaks covered in Spanish moss. They're especially beautiful as the sun is setting.

After visiting the Tabasco facilities we went on to see the jungle gardens, and they are worth the visit. Lovely park.
I walked most of it.
This gives you a better feel of the beauty of the nature, landscape and all the different plants & trees.
This place must be even more beautiful in spring or summer when there are flowers (and birds in the birds cage, which I'm not sure if that is a separate ticket or not... In October it was not, but then again there were no birds)

This is a short trip from Lafayette, and worth the drive. I almost ran my iPhone battery down taking pictures. There are so many photo opportunities. The grounds are awesome. We saw alligators, birds and so many deer. If you aren't able to walk the trails, you can still see so much from the car. Be sure to go over to the Tabasco Factory to take the tour, and shop for some unique gifts.
