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.

  • Brought a banana in our bag to feed the monkeys with. Bad idea, the monkey took it from us. He charged us for the banana. We just threw the banana to him and enjoyed watching him eat, but it was a lit...  more »

  • Awesome place... basically a non profit that provides jobs and helps supports Wildlife and environmental conservation. Support LOCAL places like this. Go to all the wildlife sanctuaries and botanical gardens. !!! Keep Barbados legit... buy local !!!
  • A wonderful day out. $30 entry fee and well worth the money. Feeding time is at 2pm and a joy to watch all the animals eating together. Beautiful environment and all so natural .. a must visit
  • Great value for a fair price. Bring proper hiking or running shoes to stay surefooted on the trails. Parking is plenty and very easy to get to. Feeding time for the animals is 2pm so get there before to see lots of species.
  • The section of the Reserve by the visitor parking lot, with the trail up to the Grenada Relay Station tower, is a great 30 minute adventure into a natural habit...and it is free. Go before 2:00 PM & you will see monkeys right @ the information booth as well as along the trail. Want to see lots of monkeys ...2:00 PM is the feeding time in the main visitor section of the Reserve. There you will see lots of monkeys & turtles as well as a few deer. Admission to this section is $30B/$15US per person. I didn’t expect much from a coffee shop in a Nature Reserve in the middle of no place but I was very pleasantly surprised. Menu is limited to sandwiches, hot dogs, cakes, etc. but all very good. The prices seemed reasonable especially considering the portion size. I had the grilled tuna sandwich, carrot cake & tea and throughly enjoyed it. I would that say that being able to eat @ the coffee shop was almost, almost, worth the price of admission to the Reserve alone. Just make sure to allow time well before (or just after) the monkey feeding to avoid any possible order rush.
