Everglades Nature
and Eco Tours

Do the Seminoles really wrestle alligators? They sure do. In fact, one of the former Seminole chiefs lost a finger several years ago when he got a little careless with his opponent.

The Seminoles were pioneers in airboat rides through the Everglades, which are now quite common. 

For something truly different, educational and enjoyable, visit the first stop on our list, Billie Swamp Safari. Spend a night or a weekend.

Billie Swamp Safari Everglades Eco-Tours: Here's something truly different--an authentic Seminole village that features a restaurant with traditional and American-style food, Seminole crafts and the opportunity to stay the night in a native-style thatched chickee.

The place is huge, with 2,200 acres on the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation that include the Florida panther, antelope, bison and southern razorback hogs. Swamp buggy eco-tours and airboat rides along with reptile and alligator exhibits and shows. Nearby are the Big Cypress Campground with RV and tent sites and cabins with A/C (800-437-4102).

Also the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum with the country's largest display in the life and culture of the Florida Seminoles. Tel. 800-949-6101 or 863-983-6101. Website: www.seminoletribe.com/ safari. Billie Swamp Safari is one of my personal favorites and highly recommended.

Miccosukee Everglades Tours: The Miccosukee tribe operates the Miccosukee Indian Village, which features wildlife shows, native crafts and cooking and high-speed airboat tours through the Glades. The restaurant features traditional Miccosukee foods and Everglades specialties.

Located 25 miles west west of the turnpike extension exit in Miami on Hwy. 441. Open daily 9-5. Tel. 305-223-8380. Website:
