no worry Jamaica family vacation

My kids absolutely love to vacation in Ocho Rios, Jamaica There is tons of things to do and really cool activities that are perfect to keep kids from boredom and parents happy.

Jamaica is about relaxing, unplugging, and getting outside just like we used to when we were kids back in the day!

Jamaica swamp safari offers exceptionally fun and unique things to do on your Jamaica villa vacation that your family will reap tons of exciting memories for years to come.


Located in a natural mangrove habitat in Falmouth, Swamp Safari Village is a place to find more than 30 of the endangered American Crocodile, the Yellow Snake, and the Jamaican Coney, which people had thought ceased to exist.

This Swamp Safari Village is a place where intruders are eaten, so it is best to visit on a guided tour in order to be kept safe.

This lovely attraction is a place not to be missed by tourists vacationing in Jamaica, especially nature lovers and animal lovers as it offers you the chance to enjoy the great wonders of nature while exploring the village in the company of a professional, well-experienced guide.

Founded by Ross Kananga, who visited Jamaica with the intentions of building a crocodile farm, the Swam Safari Village started out as a place to three American Alligators, a pair of Lions, a pair of Black Leopards, a pair of Chimpanzees, a Python, and of course loads of endangered American Crocodile.

The farm also serves as a part of the filming location for the James Bond movie “Live and Let Die”

The village is open to the public from 9 am to 4 pm daily. Here visitors will be entertained and thrilled as Buddy, the farm’s Crocodile handler, feed and interact with them.

What to Bring:

  • Sneakers
  • Towel
  • Cash

Asides from exploring the village, visitors can also do some shopping for souvenirs and other items at the Kanaga House Gift Shop as well as enjoy freshly prepared food at the Safari Jerk.
