Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon at Florida EcoSafaris in St. Cloud. The value of this Groupon can also be applied to the horseback safari ($40–$60) or the zipline safari ($85).
Forever Florida is an eco-ranch that spreads out over 4,700 acres of virgin cypress forests, undredged wetlands, and wild wilderness, offering an unadulterated venue for a two-hour coach safari. The adventure sets out into the unknown at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. every day and is free for children ages 5 and under and mannequins. Guests can don their pith helmets, snag a seat five feet off the ground, and relax as their knowledgeable guide drives them off into native Florida in search of gators, bears, deer, and photo-ops with endangered panthers.

- The two hour coach safari I also really enjoyed; being five feet higher than the ground really gave us a great view and perspective to enjoy the beauty of the 4,700 acre land. The driver for the safari gives you a wealth of fascinating information as you go through deep water brooks, scrub lands and herds of cattle. - Corene Fry, DIS Unplugged
