What a fantastic day we had here! For $23.50 Barbados dollars each, this is easily well worth the money. For this price you get entry to both Grenade Hall nature trail and the wildlife reserve. The nature trail was lovely, very picturesque with wild forestry all around and monkeys roaming the trees. It also has interesting facts dotted around about particular trees and pieces of history. Make sure you take some drinking water with you because it is a long trail, but there are benches all along the way and easy access to the exit at any point. There is also a signal tower museum at the end of the walk, which was educational with a lovely view from the top.
We took sandwiches with us to eat after the walk, but I believe there is also a little cafe where you can get some lunch.
The wildlife reserve was spectacular. So enjoyable. The reserve is all open, so that the animals literally wander freely around you. There are monkeys, deer, crocodiles, peacocks, toirtoses, mara and more. The animals are gentle and there are benches where you can sit in peace and enjoy your surroundings. Feeding time is at 2pm and I would highly recommend you are there for this as it is a spectacular display! All the animals come out from there resting places and swarm the food, and if you have not seen a particular breed yet, such as the mara who are very shy and reside in burrows, then this is when you will see them. Brilliant photo opportunities! The monkeys are really cheeky and the tortoises are ever so friendly.
There is also a zoo-like area with a few caged animals. But the cages are spacious and kept very clean. We saw some beautiful birds and parrots here as well as snakes and iguanas.
Honestly, for a whole day out we felt this was very well priced and well worth it. Kids and adults alike will love it.
Highly recommend for all ages. Do not miss this!
