Babcock Wilderness Adventures

If you wish to experience the thrill of meeting panthers, bison, birds, and dozens of wild alligators face to face, then this tour is a must.  Perhaps you may be lucky to catch a glimpse of a white tailed deer or some of the many wild turkeys along the tour route. Specially built swamp buggies carry you through unspoiled pinewoods, fresh water marsh, and sections of the Telegraph Cypress Swamp. A professional tour guide completes the experience with commentaries on the wildlife, ranch activities such as cattle and horses, and history of the area. You can bring a picnic or enjoy a lunch of gator bites, hamburgers, hot dogs, and other luncheon items in our Gator Shack Restaurant.
