We went to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve during feeding time. I suggest that would be the time that you would want to go. They place food in feeding areas and everything from pigeons, to monkeys to deer come and feed. It's a good place to take pictures of wildlife.

I had a fun time at the Barbardos Wildlife Reserve....there were tons of turtles, a few peacocks, snakes, igunas, fish, monkeys and a variety of other birds. The fee was nominal, but the guy gave me change in the currency of Barbados....not a big deal since it was only a couple of dollars. It was hot, but not unbearable. The... More

We arrived late, just before closing and got to see them feeding the monkeys. A mother and baby made for a special treat. It's worth a visit.

I understand that this would be wonderful for children. Monkeys, tortoises, deer, peacocks and other animals, some native , some not. The feeding time at 2pm every day was fun, watching all the animals scrapping to get their share of the mangoes and other fruit and veg. Although the reserve is enclosed, the monkeys are able to "escape" into the... More

We decided to visit the wildlife reserve to make a change from the beach and was very glad we did. The entry fee was cheap and the man working there was very helpful and informative. He gave us a map, a souvenir sticker and explained the layout of the park. After exploring the forest area we headed towards to animal... More

Really shocked by this 'wildlife reserve'. Beautiful setting - surrounded by a wooded area and the buildings and walls themselves are spectacular. Started off well - enjoyed seeing the tortoises and birds wild. However, on going into the reptile section, the massive python had no water. Other snakes seemed OK though. Walked out into the outer section near there -... More

We visited here as part of a tour with our travel agent, Virgin. We visited here before during a holiday in 2010 and the place has become a little more tired since our last trip. Although we didn't visit at feeding time this year, we did see some monkeys but the tour guide confessed we were very lucky to have... More

If you want to see the best selection of animals you MUST be there at 2PM. That's feeding time and loads of monkeys know it! Cafe is fine and the nature trial is good exercise if nothing else. As others have said the paths are difficult so if you're not good on your feet beware.
