The Barbados Wildlife Reserve is located in St. Peter parish, on the northern part of the Barbados west coast. Visitors can walk freely through the reserve to see the animals at close range in their own natural environment, as they play, roam and interact with the other animals.
There is a variety of different animals here, some imported and some native to Barbados. Look out for green monkeys, red-footed turtles, brocket deer, iguanas, tortoises, alligator-like caimans, plated armadillos and agoutis. Then, watch the pink flamingos standing on their delicate legs, or the strutting peacocks with their fantastic plumage walk through the aviary, which houses a wide variety of colourful birds, including parrots, macaws and love birds.
Children will love getting up close to and interacting with the animals, and the feeding time is definitely not to be missed. Why not bring a picnic to eat at the reserve or go across the road to the beautiful Farley Hill National Park to enjoy the views?
