Enjoy the Caribbean sun on a tour of Jamaica’s Swamp Safari Village and Martha Brae River. Get up-close to crocodiles and snakes in their natural mangrove habitat at Swamp Safari Village. Then ride a handmade bamboo raft down the Martha Brae River.
What to Expect
Discover the flora and fauna of Jamaica on a combined Swamp Safari Village tour and bamboo raft down the Martha Brae River. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to Falmouth, one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved colonial towns.
Once a thriving port for the export of sugar and rum (and infamously a center of the slave trade), the streets of Falmouth are lined with original houses and buildings, such as the 18th-century Anglican Church of St. Peter’s and stunning examples of Georgian architecture.
Continue to Swamp Safari Village where your guide will lead you through the mangrove swamp to see species of rare local birds in a walk-through aviary. Get up-close to agouti, coatimundi, capuchin monkeys, collared peccary, tayra and mongoose.
Meet a boa constrictor and an 18-foot anaconda. See the near extinct Jamaican coney, a guinea pig-like rodent also known as the Jamaican hutia. Watch a crocodile show put on by expert handlers and see them feed the animals. Hear about the crocodile-jumping scene filmed at the village for the James Bond blockbuster “Live and Let Die.”
Then relax on a leisurely ride down the meandering Martha Brae River. Climb aboard a 2-person, handmade, 30-foot long bamboo raft. Glide along a 3-mile stretch of the Martha Brae River for approximately 1 hour and learn about “The Legend of Martha Brae.” Jump into the river for an exhilarating swim and a different perspective of the surrounding scenery.
