I had a video assignment to shoot for my MSc in Instructional Design Technology programme. Micheal was very helpful, supportive and highly knowledgeable about his establishment. I got a tour of the grounds and it was indeed a lovely experience. There are guest rooms as well if you would like to spend a few nights. The gardens are lovely and... More

So, while taking our daily drives to different beaches on the island, my fiancé would point out different places and tell us some history about his native country. We happened to notice a guest house on top of a small hill that we wanted to check out due to the landscaping. When we drove up, the owner was already outside... More

Stayed at Genesis Nature Park for 7 nights in February, with my daughter and a family friend. We had a wonderful time in a great location! Great hosts, nice facility and beautiful grounds - all located in a wonderful part of the island that is a little "off the beaten track" in the best way possible. Strongly recommend this property!

We loved visiting Michael and his animals. Our kids, ages 12 & 7 very much enjoyed it and Michael let the kids feed the animals. The capuchin monkey was so cute and even though it's small, we spent well over 2 hours there. Michael is a wonderful host.

Genesis Nature Park, located at Goodwood, Tobago. Can be easy to miss the sign, but if you are heading from Scarborough and you get to the cricket pitch you have gone past it! Michael will basically give you a private tour of his gardens. It is not a large area but manages to pack in a wide variety of interesting... More

We visited the petting zoo with our 21 month old daughter and two weeks on, she is still talking about it. The owner, Michael gives a personal tour around the whole site where you get to feed lots of really well looked after animals including a lovely cappuchin monkey, parrots, macaws, bunnies and some very loud hogs. Stars of the... More

we ventured up here on our last day on the Island and found this small little zoo/animal experience. We met Michael and he was so excited to show us his garden and the animals in his care. He made us feel like we were close friends and was very knowledgeable about the animals he rescued that are native to Tobago.... More

Genesis Nature Park is the closest you'll get to a zoo in Tobago. The animals are located throughout the property and the owner gives a very thorough and informative guide/walk through. It's not huge but you get up close and personal with the animals. Add it to your stops in Tobago

Michael runs this lovely little conservation "zoo" from his home. He greeted us like long lost friends and showed us proudly round the whole place himself. He as rescued many local animals and is using the zoo to educate about how to protect them. This was a lovely way to meet native animals, many of whom we could handle and... More
