Barbados Wildlife Reserve
Barbados Wildlife Reserve
Visit the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Grenade Hall Signal Station, and Forest, for the most affordable tourist attraction in Barbados.
Our Barbados attraction is one of the most affordable on the island.
— Admission at ONLY: $30 for adults and $15 for children.
— Opening hours are: 10.00 am – 5.00 pm.
Take a relaxing stroll along the shaded brick paths, which meander through a forest of Mahogany Trees. Our Tortoise is likely to be the first animal to greet you. They can be found all around the Wildlife Reserve.
As you wind your way along the footpath, look for the Brocket Deer and Mara who will be timidly hiding, almost successfully, among the undergrowth.
Our path will lead you to the caiman pit, where the atmosphere changes and adopts the cold cunning disposition of these reptiles. The sly Caimans spend most of their day partially submerged; hoping opportunity will present itself. However, no need to worry; you are well out of their reach.
As you continue along your adventure, search high and low among the trees for our Barbados Green Monkeys, who seem to have eluded you. Our troop of monkeys are free to come and go as they please, so keep your eyes and ears alert, for there is no telling when they will venture into the Wildlife Reserve.
TIP: Feeding time for the monkeys is at 2.00 pm. If possible, be sure to visit the Wildlife Reserve at this time.
Observe our feathered friends who may cross your path, the Guinea Birds, Pigeons, Ducks and Peacocks proudly display their beautiful arrangement of feathers, as they go about their daily lives.
Relax on a bench along the path and appreciate the natural environment that surrounds you. Usually, in this quiet moment, our troop of Barbados Green Monkeys will suddenly appear. Watch as they play like children, up, down and through the trees.
While you enjoy the company of this human-like animals, please do not be tempted by their cute, intelligent ways and keep your distance at all times, as they are not pets.
Enough of the monkeys play and on with the adventure into the Serpentarium, where once again a chill runs up your spine as you view these cold blooded, motionless reptiles. The display of Snakes is amazing and the fact that they are caged is very reassuring.
The path will lead you through the doors of the Iguana Sanctuary where these lazy reptiles lay basking in the warm tropical sun.
Your journey now takes you past cages of exotic birds which are not native to Barbados; Love Birds, Finches, Mouthstaches, Cockatiels, Jendais, Ring Necks and more. Take a look into the enormous cage, which offers a spectacular view of beautifully colored Budgerigars.
Please feel free to continue exploring the Barbados Wildlife Reserve and remember that this natural habitat is enjoyed by our animals and we ask that you respect them and their home.
We now invite you to take a step back in time and visit the restored Grenade Hall Signal Station.
This Signal Station was used by the 19th-century Royal Artillery to communicate across Barbados using telescopes, flags, semaphores and time balls.
Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Barbados East Coast from the signal station tower before following the coral pathways through our forest where you will see many species of trees, shrubs, vines, and herbs.
Our informative and environmentally sound signs offer an insight into the role of the forest in this Barbadian ecosystem, along with the medicinal properties and their past and present uses.
At this point, you have completed your Wildlife adventure and journey through the Grenade Hall Signal Station & Forest.
We now invite you to sit back and enjoy a cool refreshing beverage at our snack bar and observe the tropical fish which inhabit our large salt water aquarium.
We hope you enjoyed your visit with us and look forward to seeing you soon again at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve.
