A Trip Back in Time
The history of Babcock Ranch is rich. You’ll find it easy to immerse yourself in the stories of the early 1900s when the Babcock family began managing the 156,000 ranch below your very feet. The renamed Babcock Ranch served as the base for the family’s timber business, the most prominent end-users being the diamond mines in South Africa that used the pine-based pitch to ward off termites. And that’s only just the beginning of what you’ll learn.
Wildlife Around Each Corner
As you wind through your tour, you never know what will be waiting around the corner. A deer, perhaps? Maybe a wild hog? Even a sighting of a Florida Panther is rare but possible during your swamp buggy tour!
A New Appreciation for Southwest Florida
Before your 90-minute swamp buggy tour comes to an end, you are sure to be amazed by something you saw along the journey. You’ll have traveled through four different ecosystems of Florida including Telegraph Cypress Swamp and had the opportunity to come within yards of some of Southwest Florida’s most majestic wildlife. We hope by the end of your journey you will walk away with a new appreciation for all that Southwest Florida has to offer and Babcock Ranch is working to preserve.
