Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Saint Peter Parish

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 trip maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Small untidy reserve made for tourists. The place is pretty tired and finished in 15 minutes, the ride. Many tortoises, a Caiman in a pool, a couple of peacocks, some Fawn-like ... the one nice thing is that if you go around at 2 o'clock in the afternoon is the time at which they feed the monkeys that you will be surrounded by a bunch of monkeys that eat and play. OK for a rainy day.

  • Awesome experience. Got up close and personal with monkeys, tortoises, deer, various birds, and maras. Recommend going at a feeding time (we went at 2pm) so you can see all the different animals.
  • Definitely a good experience for kids. Reasonable rates. We didn't take the "safari" tour - a truck tour of the grounds. The exhibits and open wildlife walk was fun. Unfortunately, they only took cash payments and very few of the animals were identified with plaques at their stations. So, while it was enjoyable, the learning experience was limited. It was nice to see a live caiman, which I had never seen before.
  • Nice little place to walk around and great for the kids. Go at 2pm - feeding time to see all the animals flock together and eat! Cafe is not open on the weekends.
  • Visited the Wildlife Reserve in Early December. Had a great experience while we were there. This gave us an opportunity to see wild animals up close from birds to peacock and monkeys. The only thing that could have been better is to have a gift shop, but it was not a huge problem. The place also offered a free trail hike along with a purchase of entrance tickets for the Wildlife Reserve. The trail hike had a small fruit bat cave to go through and some beautiful views on the ocean. Loved our day a lot and had no regrets.
  • A family experience that you should not miss very natural
