Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Saint Peter Parish
(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.

  • Large park with traditional roe deer, turtles and very friendly. There are many different types of parrots, flamingos and toucans. Nice to stroll through the rainforest and meet the iguanas, Monkeys and hares. haven't seen. I advise you, if you love birds, or just have nothing better to do.

  • We all had such a good time at the wildlife reserve yesterday and it was well worth the ~$24 BDS entrance per adult. Feeding time was 2 pm - this is a must if you go here as all the animals come together at this time. Most of the tortoises yesterday seemed to be mating which is hilarious to see, and hear! You can spend at least an hour and a half walking around the gardens here, pre mixed run punch was about $9 BDS per cup here. The baby monkeys are all so cute too being carried around by the bigger monkeys. 🐒
  • 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!
