Although you are supposed to book a tour for the park, we were in the area and stopped in just in case they had room for us. Both Roy and Ian were very accommodating letting us join a tour which had just started and then taking us around the parts we had missed in the beginning. It was a fantastic experience, they are both very knowledgeable about the species they are helping reintroduce into Tobago. They were very easy to listen to, it wasn't scripted and rote but full of enthusiasm and they answered any questions we had. You can feel the love they have for the flora and fauna of beautiful Tobago. We visited at the end of the rainy season (Dec) so it was a little muddy but not too bad, and there's plenty of shade so it wasn't unbearably hot. My son was fortunate to be able to release a baby Boa Constrictor into the wild which was fantastic. At the end of the tour we drove up to the house for amazing views of Hope Bay, and the gorgeous garden that Ian has been planting which is full of hummingbirds. The icing on the cake! I would highly recommend spending a few hours here and if you can afford it, giving a little more than the very reasonable entrance fee so that they can continue the wonderful work they are doing.

I visited Corbin Local Wildlife with my boyfriend and dad on our trip to Tobago, mainly as we wanted to see the armadillos! Roy Corbin gave us a tour himself (TT$150 per person) and it was highly interesting and very informative, he was truly full of interesting facts about Tobago’s diverse and beautiful wildlife. The rehabilitation, conservation and breeding programmes they have in place to attempt to bring back some of the species extinct in the wild are truly commendable and obviously very important to both Roy and Trinidad and Tobago’s wildlife.

Well worth a trip if you are in Tobago, Roy is lovely and seeing these exotic animals is a once in a life time experience!

It is easy to book in advance via the website. To get there, follow the signs from Belmont Road and park at the crest of a little hill. Call the number on the board there and they will come and collect you. We were met by Ian, who spent over two hours showing us around the enclosures and the reserve. He was incredibly knowledgeable on so many aspects of the plant and animal biology and his enthusiasm for the conservation of the island’s biodiversity was infectious. Here you will see some animals which are very rare on Tobago or even extinct on the island and you will learn a lot about them.
The path around the reserve is pretty easy, though there are a few areas with steps. We had no trouble with mosquitoes though it’s probably good to take some spray as there is plenty of standing water. The entry fee is TT150, which was excellent value for money, for a personal guided tour. We absolutely loved it and cannot recommend it highly enough.

We went to see Roy and Ian just yesterday and it was absolutely wonderful. Do make an appointment before you go there!

Ian took us around the park and showed us all the animals which live or used to live on Tobago. He was in no rush and took all the time for just us two. Also the passion both Roy and Ian have is amazing to see.

We both left with tears in our eyes, as it is a beautiful thing they do there.

This is a beautiful reserve that you could spend hours walking around and exploring And my friend and I left absolutely inspired by what they have created here. These two guys have almost singlehandedly lured back species (plant and animal) that had been extinct on the island for years, they're creating a home for animals endangered or left damaged by poachers, and trying to create change in a culture that doesn't yet understand the importance of preserving it's natural resources and wildlife.
This is the kind of place that you know your money (and the 200% tip you hopefully leave) will go directly to the helping preserve and expand the wonderful work they're doing. Go here and give them your money!

On top of this, Ian was absolutely charming, and an amazing, well educated tour guide. His passion for wildlife is infections. It'll make you want to go home and start an eco revolution.

Two notes: Do book in advance -given it's just the two of then, I don't imagine that they can accommodate walk-ups.
And, as most things are in Tobago, it's not straightforward to find and gets a little "off roady" at the end. Just follow the instructions they send you and you'll be fine though.
