The Jamaica Swamp Safari Village was originally established in 1969 as a crocodile farm by an American, Ross Heilman aka Ross Kananga. The farm earned notoriety as the location for the famous crocodile jumping escape in the James Bond film Live and Let Die. An interesting fact is that the actual crocodile jumping stunt was performed by Ross Kananga and the movie’s villain was name after him. Legend has it that the movie producers drove by Ross Kananga’s farm while on the island scouting for locations and became intrigued by a sign which read ‘Trespassers Will Be Eaten”. The rest as they say is history.
