Swamp Buggy Tour Animals
While exploring our 2,200 acre park on our Swamp Buggy eco-tour look out for the Zebras, white buffalo, black bucks (antelope) and Peir’ David deer roaming free in the preserve. They are all part of new exotic animals addition.
The new bird and bird of prey exhibits are located throughout the park. Look for “Eileen,” a rescued crested caracara, a barred owl and Harris’s hawk all at the bird of prey exhibit area. Hear Mynah Birds as they greet you outside of the gift shop and visit the Macaw Exhibit (they just had babies) right in front of the wolf habitat. Directly inside the main entrance of Billie Swamp Safari, interact with the Lorikeets in their aviary.
Stroll through the ¼ mile long newly renovated raised board walk through a pop ash and cypress swamp. See the largest alligators below you in their natural habitat.
There are so many new animal exhibits at Billie Swamp Safari; Artic wolves, Asian small-clawed otters, capybaras, African crested porcupines, African warthogs, serval cat, bobcat and a spirited 17-foot tiger reticulated python, Burmese python, Cuban Crocodile, Siamese Crocodile, fox, raccoon, potbelly, pig grizzly, and American black bear. This is a perfect learning opportunity to see wildlife up-close.
