  • The word "wildlife refuge" is tossed around a lot these days... many mediocre refuges still exist in our magnificent country, but there is one that goes beyond the standards. This refuge is the Savannah Wildlife Refuge. The amazing volunteer workers and rangers WILL go above and beyond to provide tons of incredible plants in animals for you to enjoy. But what really blew my mind most of all was a 13 year old volunteer that knew just as much a ranger that has been employed here for more than 15 years. He has such characters as smart, caring, and sexy. If you are planning a trip to Savannah or anywhere near the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, make sure to make this place one of your stops!
  • Great place to get away in Savanah area. Good place to see alligators and other wild life. Also there are gyms and pokiestops for Pok√©mon go people
  • The visitor's center was built in 2009 and is a very nice facility. I enjoyed the displays and the staff were very helpful. The paths nearby are well marked and make for a nice, brief walk.
  • Great display in visitor center, chance to see gators and different birds. If walking protect yourself from mosquitoes...
  • Worth the side-trip! There is a four mile driving trail that winds through old rice fields. Plenty of wildlife and saw the biggest gator ever.
