Make a visit to the Fakahatchee Strand’s Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk part of your Everglades Adventure.

Visit the website at Everglades Day Safari to book your adventure. Our nature walk is a leisurely stroll into the ancient cypress swamp forests of the Everglades. These fresh water areas are home to old growth Bald Cypress that tower of the swamp and provide homes for owls, woodpeckers, bats and raccoons. Orchids, bromeliads, ferns and climbing vines create a lush sub-tropical landscape like no other place in North America. Alligators and turtles nest nearby and a variety of bird species can be found under in the shade of the cypress.
