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 »

  • Had a great visit to the reserve. It was really peaceful and there were so many animals just wandering around to see. We made it for the 2pm feeding of the monkeys, which was great to see as all the other animals also gather to get fed. Don't worry if you arrive a bit after 2pm, the monkeys take a bit of time to get through it all.
  • Interesting if you like animals and monkeys. Go at feeding time to see the monkeys best. Overall it is interesting but once was enough. Wear walking shoes, I would not recommend sandals without good straps. The paths are rocky and some are slippery.
  • Great place to explore. The animals are everywhere so take your time walking. Its just you and the animals so make sure not to touch the animals or get too close. If you are not used to being around animals or fright easy I don't recommend going. I loved it and definitely will go back.
  • This place is so cool! Its different than your typical zoo where all the animals and cages, it was so cool so see the monkeys and other animals just roaming right across the path you walk on.
  • Very interesting place to take the entire family. A wide variety of birds and other creatures can be found here: snakes, turtles, monkeys etc. The experience takes you into the actual wildlife where these animals reside with the exception of the dangerous ones which are being held in cages for everyone's safety. A definite must visit.
