We really enjoyed our visit to the well maintained wildlife sanctuary. The guide was lively and interesting. Our party comprised of two adult, one senior and a 9 year old child. The guided tour was about one hour after which there was time to picnic and or independently follow a hiking trail.... However the guide recommended the independent trail would be more enjoyably during the dry season as it can get very muddy. The price of the tour was very reasonable but there is not a special rate for seniors - $tt 15 adults $tt 5 children

A beautiful experience from the bellowing of a Oil refinery this tranquil lake surrounded by beautiful birds and plant life. The Lodge is picture perfect contains a visual room to educate visitors along with their helpful and knowledgeable staff.

The PaPWFT is on 60 acres around 2 small ponds, adjacent to an oil refinery, yet visitors enjoy a calm and interesting visit among numerous nesting and resident waterfowl and other native and exotic birds. The main track is around a small pool, which is 40% wheel chair accessible, and takes about 45 minutes to traverse (with stops to share crumbs with the birds). The pond abounds with talapia, small tortises and the occasional small intruding caiman. Track can be slippery and muddy when wet

Just a little detail on the wild fowl trust in Trinidad and Tobago. The Trust is known to be a safe haven for wildlife and this was proven with the birth of a baby Limpkin on the Trust's Main Breeding Lake, the very first for the Trust...
In the dry season the hills are dotted with the orange flowers of the mountain immortelle, a large flowering tree that grows to a height of about 80 feet (25 metres).

We visited Pointe a Pierre yesterday, specifically coming here after we ran out of time last year in Trinidad.

We were initially turned away by security because we had not previously booked, being unaware of this requirement. Apparently if the president of Petrofin is staying at his house on the estate, security is tightened and you cannot just wander in.

The tour of the wildfowl area lasted about one hour fifteen minutes and focuses on the area around one of the lakes. You can go off piste and explore trails such as Devil's Ear Trail, but being disabled I struggle with longer walks, however I think it would be rewarding to set off on your own in this reserve.

We saw a variety of flora and fauna, all described in detail by the tour guide (Marianne I think her name is). Our guide was great, really informative and amusing, and I was really impressed by her interaction with the children on the tour. I think it's so important to engage children on nature topics, and this lady did a superb job, the children were involved in helping and answering questions, so they were not bored even for a moment.

Thoroughly recommended tour, and please buy something from the shop to help their funding, as they do not charge entry fees.
