We visited the wildlife reserve as part of a day tour in a small group. As they were expecting guests, they had fed the animals by putting lots of fresh veg in a group feeding hole so all the tortoises, monkeys, deer etc. were conveniently located in one side of the park which was good for photo opportunities. But the park is generally not very big at all so even without the feeding I think finding animals would have been easy.
Although given a map, the iguana/bird area was not well signposted and half our party missed it completely. There was also no complete list of animals so we were quite surprised when we saw caiman (look like crocodiles) in one of the water holes.
Sadly, the reserve did not look too well cared for. The snake enclosures were adequate (except for the python whose enclosure was huge to fit the HUGE snake inside - very impressive), but the birds were in cages that looked far too small for them. I was also concerned by the lack of water in the park for the animals. I understand that at our time of visit Barbados was experiencing lower than average rainfall but surely that should merit more water for the animals.
