Kayman is an extraordinary guide/naturalist. Very experienced with encyclopedic knowledge of birds, plants, and the wildlife of Nariva swamp. A near native he lives nearby. Ours was a supurb visit, seeing Howler monkeys, caimen, lizards, and a wonderful variety of rare birds.

every day on 16:00 different boats drive into the swamps to see birds and nature. At the end you can see many red ibis, coming back to sleep in the trees

Having come back to Trinidad after some time this was a really nice experience. I had gone to the swamp when I was about 9 yrs old or so but could not remember it well but this trip I will always remember. A great family outing.

It was amazing to see the thousands and thousands of scarlet ibis come back to roost for the night in the trees. The mangroves are always fascinating to view. The guide was knowledgeable and a great wildlife spotter. If you have a chance go on this tour!
