During your trip you get a chance to see some of the endangered American Crocodile which inhabits the area as well as some of the over 100 species of birds that have been recorded in the Black River. The wetland vegetation is of special interest with three species of mangrove, Thatch palms, Royal palms dominated by the freshwater swamp forest. This is a never-to-be-forgotten experience.
We move on to YS Falls, a 120-foot (36-meter) cascading waterfall amid 2,000 acres of pasture. Access to the estate is by means of a tractor pulled jitney through the fields.
