      ZIP LINE SAFARI THROUGH THE TREETOPS

      See the wilds of Florida like never before - from high up in the treetops! This Zipline Safari will take you on a two and a half hour adventure like none other, reaching heights of 55 feet and speeds up to 25 mph. Here is a link to their site with details. http://www.floridaecosafaris.com/ZiplineSafaris/ You'll sail above it all on this breathtaking aerial nature tour - a network of cables designed to send thrill-seekers flying through Pine Flatwoods and over wetlands, home to native Florida wildlife including alligators, black bears, white tail deer and the endangered Florida Panther. You'll start with a short hike along a scenic section of the Florida Trail, one of only eight National Scenic Trails in the US, as you head toward the launching point of the zipline course. Led by an expert guide, you'll "zip" among the trees from platform to platform along a system of seven high-tension cables. The breathtaking aerial view of the wilderness will be the perfect vantage point to spot wildlife and experience Florida's ecology. Adding to the adventure, the course includes two sky-bridges passing over a slough, a type of forested wetland. The final zip brings you to ground level near our wildlife interaction area which features a panther-hybrid, a close relative of the endangered Florida panther, alligators and other animals. Spend some time with them and then catch the next safari coach transport back to the visitor center.
