Nature / Park Wildlife Area
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.

  • Great place to see sine animals up close. Tortoises, deer and monkey roam around and can be easily seen throughout the reserve. Kids particularly liked seeing the monkeys so close up. Definitely visit...  more »

  • Lots to see, best place to see monkeys. Especially if you attend feeding time at 2pm! The majority of animals are free roaming so they are accessible - this makes for great photos with no bars or cages in the way. The entrance fee can be paid in US dollars or BDS (tied 2:1).
  • Lots of green monkeys and a small selection of other animals. Good way to spend a couple of ours if you are a nature buff. Lots of parrots and other birds. Most animals roam "free". Meaning you can walk amount them.
  • Loved this experience! Didn't arrive until 3:30 and was worried we would not have enough time....but No Worries! We met the most amazing staff member named "Ron" and he made sure we met, feed, petted, and experienced all the animals! Ron made our experience a 5 star!!
  • Not a whole lot of excitement here, not a bunch of wildlife, pretty basic and minimal. We weren't there at monkey time though, around 3pm they come out of the hills to feed. Worth going because you get the two for one ticket with the adjacent forest and tower attraction.
  • this is the most amazing place .. we went with our Grandson who was thrilled with the wildlife
