If you want to see the Green Monkeys, and perhaps get very close to them, than this is where you have to go. I'm not too fond of animals in caged areas, but knowing that the monkeys can wander out of the area whenever they like, sure helps. The Wildlife Reserve is small, making it a nice little visit. It...

This is quite a small reserve with a limited selection of animals but with the deers, tortoises and green monkeys roaming around free it is great fun for a family visit. Very helpful and friendly staff. It's the only zoo in the world that I know where you can enjoy a rum punch or too as you dander around. Recommend... More

We arrived just before feeding had a walk around never seen so many tortoises apart from when we visited 20 years. Feeding time all the monkeys arrived and you could get really close.

If you want to see natural Barbados, then unfortunately a sanctuary is the only place possible. Some original jungle ( sadly lacking across the island) and native and imported animals that have made a home here (like the monkeys) live safely here and are easy to view. The giant python is quite amazing. To visit is relatively cheap, enjoyable and... More

Its lovely to just see the green monkeys in the natural habitat and getting to see feeding time was great!! They have a big range of animals and was lovely just to wonder around.

We had the opportunity to visit this wildlife reserve while on a private tour. Our guide brought us here in time to explore a bit and then observe the 2pm feeding where all the animals came to one place to dine together. There were so many monkeys, many had little babies hanging onto the moms bellies. Tortoises were everywhere. There... More

If you have young kids this is the place to visit for sure!!! Turtles and Monkeys everywhere roaming free. Really great place to get the upfront experience!! They feed the Monkeys at 2pm so plan accordingly. The paths are rocky so you can't use strollers so keep that in mind.

This is a small, well maintained reserve and worth a visit just to see the green monkeys in a relatively natural environment. We combined it with a trip to Bathsheba as we wanted to see a bit more than the West coast. It won't take long to walk round the reserve but there are a number of animals to see... More

When we first entered the Wildlife Reserve, I wasn't impressed. I saw a tortoise strutting around like he owned the place but didn't see much else. However, once I walked along further, I begin to see monkeys, deer, birds, and more. One of the funniest moments was walking along a path when suddenly an egg lands on the ground about... More

A very little wildlife reserve but it is great to see the monkeys roaming around in there. This place is next door to the signal station which I found boring. However if you visit the would recommend that you do both attractions.
