3.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Meet the animals at Barbados Wildlife Reserve, an animal conservation and education project. Established in 1982 as a facility for studying and conserving green monkeys, the site has grown steadily over time, now occupying 1.6 ha (4 acres) of wild mahogany forest. The reserve has an open-door policy for many of the animals; they're free to leave the enclosures during the day, so you'll notice many species roaming the shaded park with you. Spot green monkeys, agouti, caiman, and iguanas during your visit, making sure to walk through the onsite aviary to see its many colorful birds. Put Barbados Wildlife Reserve into our Saint Peter Parish holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • August 2014: is a free walk through this small reserve to observe the animals at close range. There are a few cages and enclosures. The "green monkeys" are the only truly free to leave the reserve and therefore if it is not the "jelly" you may not see them! The birds (Aviary) vary from colorful parrots, flamingos and peacocks, pelicans, while in a Reptile House are observable snakes (a really huge reticulated python!), iguanas, turtles and tortoises (the latter roam throughout the reserve). Among the animals there are non-autochthonous mazama, agouti, caimans and armadillos. Definitely great fun for children and adults is still a pleasant walk!

  • Amazing place to visit! Photography by D. L. Samuels
  • This is a nice place to visit. You can see all the island animals and have no barriers between you and them. Great work guys.
  • Tortoises everywhere, and some amazing other animals. Would really recommend it
  • Go at 2 pm for the feeding. Be prepared to be almost run over by green monkeys, turtles, peacocks and deer. Great for pictures!
  • Saw loads of tortoises, in heat! The monkeys came out during their feeding time. It was an alright experience, but not one I'd do more than once.
