We visited the wildlife reserve as we had got a little burnt at the beach the previous day. It is a delightful place, wandering through the leafy trees, in what is a cross between a zoo and a nature reserve. We saw mara, mongoose, green monkeys, tortoises etc. You probably won't need more than an hour or two, but as... More

I was skeptical about this visit but it was great. The monkeys really are free to roam along with deer, tortoises etc., and are fascinating to observe. Nice little cafe too. However time to dump the caymans and snakes. Placing wild animals in small rather dirty conditions is sooo...1980's. Do that and clean the toilets and be true to your... More

This will be the best attraction you will see, for the smallest admission price. The environment is perfect, the animals very interesting. You might even get to feed a green monkey.

We visited this Wildlife Reserve on our last day in Barbados (31/01/2017), Lots of different types of animals, very relaxing and enjoyed seeing the monkeys, though we came in the morning but wanted to stay longer. Staff where friendly.

This Reserve was good. Monkeys, deer, loads of tortoises, iguanas, and caiman. They also had an aviary and snake tanks. You could spend an enjoyable couple of hours here.

I really enjoyed my visit here but would struggle to 'rave' about it. Don't bring anyone a bit unsteady on their feet. The path around is made from wonky bricks badly laid, perfect for grannies to break hips and toddlers to smash their front teeth. There weren't a lot of animals mainly tortoise and peacock with a few deer, guinea... More

We enjoyed it on the whole. A few green monkeys arrived at reception on our way back from the forest walk which was fun. The section that housed the reptiles etc could definitely do with some work! The cages for the parrots were too small and where they were situated gave the poor birds no outlook or stimulation.

I was excited for this tour as I don't get to see these animals on a daily basis. We did not know about the feeding time for the monkeys, so we did not get to see them in abundance on this visit. However, I felt like the number of animals there have decreased over the years.

We came earlier today and wondered around seeing deer, Mara, tortoises, birds, caiman and a few other bits but no monkeys. The monkeys are free to roam in and out of the reserve (the other animals aren't but the enclosure is a pretty good size) if you don't get to see the monkeys the first time you get your ticket...
