Rain forest with fitzroy

We went on a two hours tour with Fitzroy. It is a great experience that I certainly recommend. A different side of the island from the beach. Enjoyable also if raining.

We went to the reserve to check it out and luckily found Fitzroy Quamina. We went on a 3 hour hike. Fitzroy pointed out a lot of the unique animals and plants in the forest and good hidden spots.After the hike we ate at the Rainforest Cafe, a small household cafe run by Fitzroy's sister. It was a lovely hike... More

We went for a 3h walk with Fitzroy. The guide was waiting for us as planned at the meeting point (the visitor center) As planned he had boots for my wife and I and for my three teenage girls. The walk was great. Fitzroy was able to spot birds that were invisible to our untrained eyes. He gave us interesting... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting the Forest Reserve twice with Newton George. Each time it was a welcomed opportunity to learn from his wealth of knowledge and experience in birding and on the flora and fauna in the reserve. A visit to the Forest Reserve is a must for nature and bird lovers and Mr. George is one of... More

We had a 3 hour trek with our guide Fitzroy who is an experienced guide and a remarkable ability to spot birds and wildlife. We discussed the type of trek we wanted, and he adapted a walk to suit our needs, and after a bit of negotiating, we were off on a wonderful walk through the rainforest. Highly recommended.

We were lucky enough to catch Newton George for birding in the reserve. He travels a fair amount. As a birder, I've heard of him for years. His reputation as a expert bird guide is well deserved. He is truly amazing. The gorgeous birds here include jacamars, trogons, hummingbirds, of course Mot Mots. But my most wished for bird, only... More

Tobago may be a tiny Island, but what an Island it is. We have just driven up through the rainforest from Roxborough to Bloody Bay. The drive is quite tricky in places and some scary roads, but well worth the effort. We chose not to employ a guide and stayed on the main road. Right or wrong i don't know,... More
