  • We were picked up from our hotel by a really nice guy who was very chatty and full of info. On arrival at the swamp safari we waited for about 20 mins. I had been before back in 1976 and loved it so wanted to take my daughter to it this time. It was just crocodiles mainly previously but now they have turned it into a wildlife zoo. I wasn't very interested in the other animals and thought that it was run down.
    The supposed highlight was were the Bond part had been filmed which was very overgrown and not as I remebered at all. They had changed it but worst of all was thet it had been very let down and there were no crocs in the lake.
    We were ushered into the shack to watch a very old video abouyt the Bond filming.
    My daughter loved the trip but I felt let down becasue it had gone to ruin.

  • Very informative tour. A

  • This tour was great! Learned a lot about crocodiles, birds and other wildlife that live in Jamaica. This is more of a wildlife sanctuary. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the animals and the laws that protect some of them. Held a snake and a small crocodile seeing I felt so safe!

  • We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to the Swamp Safari. Our coach driver was extremely polite and happy to tell us about the local community and other tours we might like to do on the island.
    On arrival we waited for about 20 minutes for our tour to start, but no problems as we had a drink at the bar. My partner is a huge James Bond fan and he thoroughly enjoyed seeing where scenes were filmed.
    It was just myself and my partner on the tour, which was fab. Tour guide was really informative and helped us to thoroughly enjoy the Swamp Safari.
    Highly recommended this tour. Even though it is not well advertised, it is well worth a visit.

  • The Jamaica Swamp Safari Village/F. Tour was EXCELLENT!. We really enjoyed seeing the crocodiles being fed and listening to our tour guide. She provided lots of information regarding the habits and behaviors of the crocodiles in particular and other animals as well. My husband, daughter and I actually held a boa constrictor for the first time-never thought I would do that. Not only did we enjoy the animal sanctuary...we had a wonderful driver that narrated our trip to the village and back. He also answered many questions and even stopped at specific points on the way back so we could take great pictures. This tour was definitely a highlight for us, during our stay in Jamaica!

  • The guide from swamp safari village was fantastic and clearly passionate about his job, which was nice to see. However, the bus was over an hour late picking us up from the hotel, and the driver completely skipped the Falmouth Tour. He provided no commentary whatsoever - just served as a taxi to and from swamp safari village. Therefore, while I would recommend safari village to anyone, I would not recommend this tour.
