Be swept away from the moment you enter the 4,700-acre conservation area known as Forever Florida. You can go horseback riding or explore the area in an open-air coach where you will experience tons of fauna, flora and wildlife unique to Central Florida. Florida Eco-Safaris at Forever Florida is a conservation area and a true working cattle ranch, which is privately owned just outside of the Walt Disney World and Orlando theme park area.
Take a break from the rush of theme park life and explore the nature of Florida. Tours available include a fully guided Coach Safari and Horseback Safari or the only Zip-Line Safari in Florida. During your safari you may be lucky enough to see some of the wildlife Florida is known for including alligators, black bears, white-tail deer and 200 species of birds. There is even a chance you may be able to see the endangered Florida Panther along the way.
The Coach Safari is a two-hour eco-safari where you will be guided through the 4,700 acres of Forever Florida wildlife conservation area. Your guide will take you up close to Florida’s natural attractions in a coach, which elevates you five feet off the ground. This gives you a great view of everything there is to see. There will be a chance midway through your adventures to get out and walk along a boardwalk through 500-year-old cypress trees to the Bull Creek floodplain.
Explore the conservation area the way the first settlers did, by horseback. You can enjoy a one-, two-, or three-hour adventure through nine distinct Florida ecosystems. Your horseback safari will be fully guided and you will get a chance to see some of the most unique wildlife around.
One of the most adventurous tours available by Florida Eco-Safaris is the new Zip-Line Safari, which will have your heart pumping. You will soar above the treetops and see Kissimmee’s wildlife from a bird’s-eye view. This is a one-of-a-kind experience as no other location in Central Florida offers this unique aerial safari.
Your Zip-Line Safari will take you 55 feet off the ground and you will make your way across 750 feet of line. You will sail over some of Florida’s wetlands through Pine Flatwoods. This tour is designed for excitement and is two and one half hours long, stopping at nine different observation platforms. You will also be reaching speeds up to 25 miles per hour during your tour.
Florida Ecosafaris is helping preserve Florida’s wildlife and donates a percentage of revenues from the Thrill Park, Zip-Line Safari, Coach Safari and Horseback Safaris to the conservation effort done by Forever Florida.
