Alligators & Friends
3-Hour Trip: Venture just outside Savannah to discover alligators basking in the sun while great blue herons fish serenely nearby, purple gallinules pace the lily pads, and majestic raptors soar overhead. Under gracefully arching live oaks draped with Spanish moss, you’ll learn why powerful rivers sometimes flow upstream — and why that reversing flow of major rivers became important to our early settlers.
Through a driving and walking tour, safely explore this intersection of natural history, human history, and geography while you investigate the unique, tidally influenced, fresh-water marshes of the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge.
Your WiSE guide will help you spot camouflaged wildlife so you can get a close look — while your curiosity is piqued and questions answered.
