Babcock Wilderness Adventures
Situated north of Fort Myers Beach in Southwest Florida, the Babcock Wilderness Adventure Adventures sprawls across more than 90,000 acres of land. In an area famous for its perpetual sunshine, beaches, and ocean, Babcock Ranch provides visitors with a refreshing respite from fun in the sun to explore the great outdoors and learn firsthand the magnificent natural landscape that Florida has to offer.
Considered an inland, upland, freshwater eco-system, Babcock Ranch is diverse in its natural habitats, ranging from pine forests and pastures to wetlands and swamps. A variety of fruits and vegetables are farmed on this ranch as well, but the main attraction for visitors is the Babcock Wilderness Adventures buggy tour.
This 90-minute guided tour offers an inside look at the breathtaking natural beauty of the preserve, diverse in both flora and fauna. Alligators, wildlife, birds, and ranch animals like horses are just some of the inhabitants of this nature preserve that you will see during your buggy tour through the wilderness, and your experienced tour guide will narrate your excursion every step of the way. Afterwards, wrap up your exciting adventure with an outdoor picnic or lunch at the Gator Shack restaurant, which offers delicious ranch fare for you to enjoy. There is also a museum to explore, and a gift shop where you can find a souvenir to remember your day by.
The next time you visit the Fort Myers Beach area, make sure to reserve your eco tour at the beautiful Babcock Wilderness nature preserve. Enjoy the perfect day outdoors learning all about the natural landscape and wild animal inhabitants of Florida on this sprawling ranch.
