The Jamaica Swamp Safari In Falmouth

Jamaica Swamp Safari Village is an amazing little attraction found in Falmouth, Trelawny - a place where intruders will be eaten :-)


But those who visit during opening hours will be kept safe and will be able to see the animals and enjoy the wonders of nature as they tour the village with trained guides.

The Swamp Safari Village was founded by Ross Kananga. He came to Jamaica with a plan to set up a crocodile farm from as early as 1969.

The farm started out as a home to many endangered American Crocodiles, three American Alligators, a pair of Black Leopards, a Python, a pair of Chimpanzees and a pair of Lions.

In fact, a part of the James Bond movie "Live and Let Die" was filmed there with Ross Kananga performing as Roger Moore's stunt double.

The farm became an attraction for locals and visitors alike. They would watch Ross as he wrestled with the crocodiles and interacted with the Leopards and Lions, but Ross died at the age of 32 in America.

The village is now open from 9 am to 4 pm every day and guided 1 and 1/4 hour tours are organized.

Visitors are able to watch as Buddy, the renowned Crocodile handler, calls the crocodiles, feeds and handles them.

The Village is now home to the Jamaican Yellow snake and the almost extinct Jamaican Coney, Capuchin Monkeys, a pair of Barn Owls, a yellow billed parrot, 2 parakeets, a flock of Geese, an Anaconda, a male Green Iguana and other creatures.

Visitors are able to shop at the Kananga House Gift Shop, named after the founder Ross Kananga and enjoy nicely cooked meals at the Safari Jerk Restaurant.

The is also a Village Bar for those who want to enjoy refreshing drinks.

A tour of the Jamaica Swamp Safari Village is truly a wonderful experience both to visitors and locals alike.
