It is simple and not very large, but great fun if you go around feeding time (2pm-3pm). All the monkey, turtles and other animals converge on a large pile of old fruit and vegetables (interesting each species seemed to have it's preferred items). Our twin 8 year old boys really enjoyed themselves both watching the animals and walking the pathways.... More

As I was born in and lived the majority of my live in Barbados, my trips (and memory) of the Wildlife Reserve are (unfortunately) very limited. But I took the family out today (Feb 22nd, 2015) to get a reminder. It was exciting and fun for the whole family :-) We got there around 12:30 pm and we strongly suggest... More

I have read the previous reviews and must say that I saw snakes and birds in cages and all looked to have plenty of room, and it is good to see the other animals just wandering about. We went in the morning so things were fairly quiet and we were able to take our time wandering around, stopping where we... More

We made a special trip here on the last day of our visit. I love taking pictures of nature, and the opportunity to see some local animals in their natural habitat was too good to pass up. When we arrived, one of the first animals we saw was a tiny (days old) fawn who was obviously in a great deal... More

Great for the kids. Monkeys, Tortoise, small deer, crocodiles, birds, all in the really great walking path environment. The nature trails on the other side are also excellent. The paths wonder through the tropical forest and teach you things about the flora and fauna as well as the Amerindian's who first settled the Island. Really Cool, one of the best... More

There were many animals including iguanas, caimans, tortoises and maras (a cross between a rabbit and a deer). You need to come at 2 p.m., as that's when the feeding session starts. The taxis are quite pricey, instead there are buses which go from Speightstown. Excellent for families with young children.

Put those poor birds in flying areas so that they can spread their splendid wings. They are sacrificed to be immobile tree ornanents!! Snake tank is AWFUL and displays animal mistreatment. It cannot unravel itself and never slither again. INHUMANE!! Shame on us who do not respect these creatures and the harmony that connects us all!

I hadn't been here for about a decade, but it sure was fun. We went to see the monkeys, and did we. I was able to teas the girls by tapping their shoulders with a piece of paper, making them think a monkey was jumping on them or touching them. They jumped and screamed, mission accomplished. But the monkeys are... More
