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

We went for what turned out to be a 6 hour tour of the Nariva swamp and Bush Bush protected area. The hike started in Kayman's own backyard where he showed us a pair of rare owls that stood perched on treetops. After a short, informative drive, we began our hike. Along the way, Kayman pointed out birds based on... More

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.

We had an absolutely fantastic Kayaking experience with Kayman! We stayed overnight so that we could leave as soon as the sunrise so as to catch sight of the Howler monkeys and even the Trinidad Capuchin monkeys and it was not a disappointment at all! We spotted them along with lots of exotic birds and crabs in the swamp. I... More

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!

The Nariva Swamp tour was really good. We went with Nanan's tours 1-868-645-1305. Very well organised and informative. Good value for money too. We left the dock around 4pm and stopped on the way to look at birds, fish, snake and numerous caimans. finally we arrived at the area where the scarlet ibis roost. we waited while they flew in...

We recently took a day trip to Nariva Swamp to see the wildlife of Trinidad. We weren't disappointed! You meet up with a guide and there was an initial boat ride through Nariva Swamp area where we saw red-bellied macaws and many other birds in route. After getting to Bush Bush Island, we were able to see both the Red... More
