My wife and I decided to visit here to see some of the plants and wildlife Barbados had to offer. Easy to find, very pleasant to walk around both the wildlife reserve (plenty to see) and the forest. Very peaceful place, makes for a nice few hours visit to explore.

This was my first stop in Barbados. I really liked the facility. It is a great cost and the money mostly goes to help preserve the creatures of the sanctuary. I love the variety of reptiles, birds, and mammals. Great for all ages. I could've spent most of the day seeing all the different animals interact with each other. One... More

Plenty of animals and tropical trees/plants/flowers to see. We hired a car and drove from the south to the north of the island, taking us approx 50 mins. Taxis/ 2 buses can also take you as well as tour operators. Cost very resonable, we paid on entrance approx £8 per person. Saw green monkeys wandering about as well as lots... More

Visited here with my 80 year old mom on a shore excursion we had arranged with a driver. Admission fee is US$12. So many endangered tortoises wandering around, you can trip over them if not careful. We saw all the animals listed on the map included with admission, except for monkeys. The place is a little run-down, but the staff... More

This was the final stop on our "Los Barbados" day tour, we arrived just after 2pm so were in time to see the monkeys coming to be fed. By standing next to the tree that the monkeys all climbed on their way to be fed, I managed to get a great close-up photo of a monkey halfway up a tree.... More

We were staying in the South Coast, near Dover Beach. We took a bus to Speightstown (took us 1 hour and only cost $1 USD per person) and took a smaller minivan for another $1 USD for the next 10-15 minutes of the journey and that dropped us right in front of the reserve. We took the short walk in... More

We planed a morning trip the The Animal Flower Caves then a trip South to make the 2pm feeding time. If your staying on the south end of the island, I would suggest you do the same. This allows you to spend plenty of time and the ACF and still make it to the preserve in time for the "real"... More

Hire a cabby, buy 2 dollars of bananas from a local, and head to the wildlife reserve. The monkeys will bounce at your feet and playfully steal anything in your hands. After you feed them, go into the fenced off reserve and watch turtles, monkeys, deer and birds just walk all around you, often within arms reach. (DONT try and... More
