8. What can I realistically expect to see?
That will be left up to Mother Nature. Every Swampbuggy Adventure is a one of a
kind experience into the Big Cypress National Preserve. No two trips are ever
the same. No cages and no animals are captive, just nature in the raw.
Often you’ll be fortunate to see a lot of wildlife, some days not so much. On
any given day you may see ospreys, various breeds of herons and egrets, and
Commonly seen are wood storks, white ibis, bald eagles, numerous hawks, owls,
swallow-tail kites, both turkey and black vultures. It’s also possible you may
see wild hogs, bobcats, the ever elusive panther, white- tail deer and even
black bear all from the safety of the swampbuggy.
There have been trips when we see very little wildlife.This is the Native Habitat.
You’ll really never know what you’re going to see until you get there. One
thing is for sure, If you don’t go, you won’t know…
Of course, there is more to the Big Cypress National Preserve than just the
wildlife. The Sub tropical Flora and Fauna here in the Florida Everglades is
only the beginning…
