The tour was amazing and Kayman is an unbelievable guide and host with expert knowledge of birds, flora and fauna. We spotted kingfishers, toucans, herrons, hawks, egrets and enjoyed a beautiful hike in Bush Bush, learning more about the flora and fauna. Kayman also gave us a mini-tour of the beautiful Kernaham Village and provided very delicious vegan refreshments for... More

This was the best guided trip we have made on our many visits to Trinidad over the last 20yrs. Kayman's knowledge of the ecosystems and fragile status of the swamp and Bushbush Island habitat make this an essential excursion when visiting the island. The daybreak start for a stealthy kayak into the mangroves then grass/sedge beds before reaching the island... More

An excellent morning out with a very professional guide and highly personable ex-Yorkshireman! All aspects of the tour and arrangements were really smooth and the birding is fantastic. We went by boat as had heavy camera gear and Kayman's knowledge of the ecology of the area was fabulous ...and the howler monkeys a real bonus. Would highly recommend to anyone... More

In September 2015, a friend and I had the pleasure of taking an intimate kayak tour through Nariva swamp, followed by a walk on Bush Bush island, guided by Kayman. While I have kayaked and paddled in Caroni swamp on a few previous occasions, the landscape throughout Nariva is completely different as here the mangrove channels give way to breathtaking... More

We cannot recommend Kayman's tour of Nariva Swamp highly enough! The tour began with kayaking through the mangrove swamp. Kayaking was really fun and we were able to see some incredible birds. There was no boat engine to drown out the wonderful sound of the jumbie crabs scuttling around in the mangroves. Then we arrived at Bush Bush island, which... More

Kayman Sagar is a top notch tour guide that has a deep knowledge of the flora, fauna and ecology of the Nariva Swamp area. He is clearly one of the best birding guides I have ever had the privilege to be with.

While visiting Trinidad the last part of August / first part of September, my wife wanted to go on an EcoTour. We decided to go to the Nariva Swamp and Bush-Bush Nature reserve. Emailed Kayman and set up a time and place. Was extremely easy. The night before our tour we had driven from Las Cuevas beach to Grande Riviere... More

My husband & I had a great afternoon on Bushbush Island with Kayman. I'm an avid birder and Kayman did not disappoint. His in-depth knowledge comes from a personal commitment to the conservation of this beautiful area. We saw red howler monkeys and White Capuchin monkeys and many birds. The scenery was magical. Highly recommended!

We could not have had a better time on our tour of the Nariva Swamp with Kayman. Scheduling the tour over email was a breeze, and the tour itself was a delight. It was such a gift to boat and hike through such a diverse and impressive swath of nature with a tour guide who was as dedicated and knowledgable... More

First of all, Kayman was accomodating to our timetable and was really good about emailing right back on our short schedule. We really wanted to see the Tamanu Bat Cave but guide books said it was nearly impossible to find them yourself. That is correct...there are no signs. Kayman, the guide, took us to the top of the mountain, explaining... More
