Birding and nature enthusiasts who visit Grosse Savanne Eco-tours will experience why others have proclaimed Southwest Louisiana as one of the top 10 birding areas in the United States. Over 400 species of birds migrate to and through the area. Grosse Savanne’s vast property of over 50,000 acres is nearly split in half by the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road, a nationally acclaimed “Louisiana Outback” wildlife and photography trail. Grosse Savanne Eco-tours has unlimited access to a multitude of various ecotypes including both fresh and salt water marshes, cypress swamps, native coastal prairies, pine forest plantations, and agricultural lands. We are ideally located in the transition from coastal prairies to chenier plain marshes, creating the ideal environment for birding and wildlife/nature viewing. Whether your interest is spending the day leisurely exploring one of our private nature trails, taking a private boat tour in our secluded marshes, or spending the day in a blind waiting for that perfect photograph of a roseate spoonbill, we can provide various wildlife viewing and educational experiences.
