Savannah National Wildlife Refuge reviews
I love nature and being near by where they live. It's a 5 mile road trip you can sit in your car and drive and observe the herons, Kootz and mallards. Besides this you can even see an alligator or two. You are allowed to get out of your car and take pics but no harassing of the alligators. You can also walk or run the 5 miles but as the temperature is really high you may prefer your air conditioned vehicle. Well, if in the area stop by and enjoy yourself.
Was incredibly HOT but it's beautiful with plenty of wildlife to photograph. Wish there were some clearer paths to photograph the plants and wildlife in the water. I'm sure there are more wildlife in the non summer but with summer ( early August) there were huge butterflies and dragonflies to shoot.
