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.

  • We missed feeding time. But on entry staff introduced us to Charlie, his monkey. He spent a lot of time talking with us and even let us feed Charlie and take photos with him. There were loads of other...  more »
  • A superb walk through a shady forest, families of monkeys in liberty, encounters! Follow the visit of the original reserve but with an army of turtles, a deer, a good time

  • We rented a car for three of our days and took an adventurous ride around the island. The afternoon feeding is something to see. You are so close to the monkeys and their babies and yet you feel safe.  more »

  • One of my favourite places to visit while in Barbados. Especially going for the 14:00 feeding. I love seeing all the monkeys.
  • 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.
  • While you get to see some interesting animals, it's very run down and in need of some serious love. There were a few animals that looked as though they needed medical attention.
  • Just watching the monkeys eat here is amazing. Wild life at it's best
  • 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.
