There are three parts to the visit - the old signal station with great views of the East Coast (like Cherry Tree Reserve) and history of the old signals. Then a path through the forest which is excellent (and not as steep as we had feared on the way down) - we saw a troop on monkeys playing with each... More

Small and primitive facility. Great place to see those adorable monkeys up close. Don't miss feeding time, it is quite the experience.

The green monkeys were fun to see, but children were hand feeding them as well as the deer. I wouldn't feel comfortable letting my child pet and feed animals in that kind of environment. There was one rest room with cold water so lines were long. There were also a lot of turtles and something in a green pond of... More

The wildlife reserve is great to see but unsure about some of the captivity. The python looked like it was in a very small thing considering its a big animal so unsure about that. Nice to see the turtles and deer but there was a strange animal which looked like a rabbit slash something weird. id recommend for a morning... More

I attended this reserve with my teen daughter. The best part was our walking and talking and exploring the reserve and lobserving the animals and trying to get as close to them as possible with them moving away, it was great fun, we took many pictures. The park is serene and pretty in a natural way. The staff was very... More

This Wildlife reserve rescues any wildanymals found on Barbadosand rehouses them. It is a magical place where the visitor can wander around in a wooded area watching the green monkeys cavorting around, and small caribbean deer, beautiful pea cocks and a number of other animals mingle freely (without any fences except for the outer enclosure). And land turtles are everywhere.... More

We hired a taxi which took us to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve; it was an experience… A small entrance fee gains you access to this very well organized reserve. We saw land turtles, alligators, parrots, Cuban iguanas, deer, various birds, a very large python in a cage and plenty of the Barbados Green Monkeys… The monkeys were fascinating, they are... More

I would not recommend this to anyone. I am pretty honest with my reviews and not a sour puss but this place is bad. With all the money here in Barbados this place makes me sick. In the area if 1/2 of a football field there are deer, turtles alligators, monkeys, peacocks, chickens,bunnies, turkeys in a space that is dominated... More

Beware american tourists: this is not Disney! This place is probably the same as it was when created 40 some years ago. So there will be no technology gizmos here. But such a nice natural environment, where you can relax by just walking around and get a couple of fun encounters with live animals...and the green monkeys are still and... More
