this place is a little gem in the grounds of an oil refinery- brilliant amount of bird species very peaceful with walks to do. Lovely and also great value for money- worth the trip about an hour from POS I'm a taxi.

This bird sanctuary was truly unexpected. Many of the locals have not heard of it, and it's definitely in a location you would not expect it to be, on the compound of an oil refinery. But don't let that damper your thoughts. This place is fantastic! The animals are beautiful to watch. You can really tell that the place takes pride in taking care of the animals and letting them live safely in their trust.

I am not a nature person but it was quite nice to see all the different types of birds. At the entrance you encounter magnificent peacocks strutting around freely. I did not like the snake exhibit though but others in my group did enjoy it.

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
