Great place to visit, enjoy a picnic in the picnic area, you will be joined by the monkeys, but feeding them is discouraged., lots to see as there are other animals and birds in the reserve, but the monkeys are truly entertaining and great fun for all the family

A surprisingly good attraction. Monkeys, deer's, toistoise, caimans, birds, snakes, peacocks,chickens...great to explore. Our 2 year old was amazed. Not all buggy friendly so better if child can walk a fair distance. Real value for money as you get acres to Wildlife Park, Grenade Hall Forest and watch tower. A special thanks to the very lovely Jessica in the restaurant.

Worth the entry fee for sitting at 2pm and watching the monkeys at feeding time. They are not actually confined to the reserve but travel around and descend for feeding time. Tortoises and the beautiful deer are the other main interest.

Smaller than I'd expected, but there was plenty of wildlife on view. Across the way (and included in the price) was Grenade Hall Signal Station--enjoyed walking through the mahogany forest, though the "educational" signs seemed out of date, identifying plants that were no longer to be seen around! Great views from the top of the signal tower.

This was the final attraction we visited during our week long stay in Barbados. We found it interesting especially the walk through the gully and the signal station (the third one we had seen). Personally didn't really love the bit where all the animals were - bit too many cages for me - but it was interesting to see them... More

We arrived and were slightly confused between the Grenade Hill entrance and the Wildlife area because the monkeys were in the former for the morning. However, we went off to the Wildlife Reserve and enjoyed following the meandering paths as the slow moving wildlife walked and crawled around us. The kids enjoyed the reptile house and the aviary before we... More

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
