Brandcation Event - Florida Ecosafaris

On Friday during Brandcation we got up really early (at least really early for me  Happy ) and headed deep into St. Cloud to Florida Ecosafaris for an amazing day of adventure.

From their website.....

"Let Us Take You On An Unforgettable Journey into Forever Florida, a 4700 acre eco-ranch and wildlife conservation area boasting beautifully untamed wilderness, natural streams, wetlands and dense cypress forests. Choose your own fully-guided adventure: Coach Safari, Horseback Safari or soar over it all on Florida's only Zipline Safari!

At Forever Florida, we have eco-safaris for the entire family - the thrilling Zipline Safari, the adventurous Horseback Safari and the comfortable Coach Safari. Each offers a unique opportunity to leave the theme parks far behind and experience wild, natural Florida.

Each of our eco-safaris transport you through Forever Florida; an all too rare wild part of the state preserved just as nature intended. This special place boasts nine distinct Florida ecosystems, home to an endless array of natural flora and fauna including alligators, black bears, white-tail deer, nearly two hundred species of birds and the endangered Florida Panther."

Thanks to Matt Duda for giving us the background on the ranch and all of the property at Florida Ecosafaris and answering the million questions that we all had. Along with providing a wonderful lunch for all of us of coleslaw, beans and a delicious BBQ pulled pork (one of my faves).

While most of the ladies went on the zipline tour, because of my disability, I took the Coach Safari tour with Bobbie from One Scrappy Mom and while it was quite cold for Florida in early November, we still had a wonderful time and saw some amazing things....

Thank you so much to Florida Ecosafaris for providing us with such an awesome experience. I will definitely be taking my family back  - I KNOW my boys and their girlfriends will LOVE the zipline and Bill and I can take the Coach Safari tour, because it will be different each time. I'd like to give a shout out to my tour guide Nancy who was just wonderful, she was so knowledgeable and truly had a love of the land and the animals.

Check out their website for all the information on prices and availability.

{Disclosure: My ticket to Florida Ecosafaris was complimentary. I only paid an extremely nominal fee for all the activities that I participated in. I drove my own transportation and was graciously given gas money by the lovely ladies that were at the event with me. All the views expressed in these posts are ALL mine.}
