Jamaica Swamp Safari Village
With a large sign declaring that “Trespassers Will Be Eaten,” this attraction on the outskirts of Falmouth will most fascinate reptile enthusiasts. The village was started as a crocodile farm in the 1970s by American Ross Kananga, who was a stunt man in the James Bond film Live and Let Die.
Scenes from the film Papillon,
starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, were also shot here. Although Ross passed away some years ago and the attraction fell into disrepair, it has recently reopened. It now houses a number of Jamaican crocodiles as well as the Jamaican yellow boa snake. There are other exotic animals from South America and colorful tropical birds in the aviary.
