Experience history and wildlife on this action-packed tram tour of the plantation's wetlands, lakes, forests, and marshes. Naturalist guides help you spot alligators, turtles, egrets, and herons in native habitats. You never know what you might see. One minute you'll glimpse an alligator sliding off a bank and the next you'll turn your head to catch a great blue heron spearing a fish. And as you ride through the landscape, guides bring its history to life. From a row of slave cabins to 19th century rice ponds and a Native American ceremonial mound that evoke the plantation's complex past. With more than 600 acres of wildlife habitats and gardens, it can be difficult to see everything there is to see on foot. The Nature Tram allows you to view a large portion of these wonderful areas in an entertaining and educational way.
The Nature Tram is also a great way to give your feet a rest. If you are tired of walking, you can sit back and still enjoy Magnolia's wildlife experience.
