A Relaxing Coach Safari Through Forever Florida

The tour, lasting approximately two hours, will take you into the four-thousand acre Forever Florida wildlife conservation area. The actual coach tour lasts 90 minutes as there is a video beforehand which explains how Forever Florida came about. The site features nine different Florida ecosystems and numerous flora and fauna including alligators, black bears, black panther, wild boars and almost two hundred varieties of birds. However, you are very unlikely to come across the bears and the panther during your visit!

These special open air safari coaches are elevated five feet off the ground, which enables you to obtain great views of the surrounding area. Your guide will be able to get you up close to everything as you travel over land and through water. Make sure you have your cameras at the ready as you never know when you are going to come across the animals.

All through the tour our informative guide and driver provided a commentary about our encounters with the wildlife. Your adventure begins at a scenic Florida ranch with Spanish Colonial Cattle and Florida’s unique Cracker Horses. These are the direct descendants of the ones which were brought over by Spanish settlers in the sixteenth century.

Be on the lookout for alligators, turtles, wild turkey and white tail deer. During our time on the tour we visited a floodplain forest. We all disembarked from the safari coach to take a short walk along the boardwalk to see Bull Creek. This is a stream of tea coloured water which unbelievably is clean enough to drink, although we weren’t brave enough to sample it! The air is so pure here and to really appreciate just how pure it is everyone took a deep breath of air.

When our tour ended we took time out to sit on the covered veranda in the rocking chairs and watch the alligators in the lake.

Tours take place daily at 10am and 1pm. We telephoned in the morning to pre-book for the afternoon tour. Parking is free and there is a restaurant and a souvenir shop on site.

Forever Florida is located in St Cloud which is southeast of Kissimmee.
