Must be there to start your self guided tour by about noon. Walk all the paths to see plenty of tourtous's, Bukhara deer, peacock, other birds, iguana's and yes the monkeys. STAY to watch the feeding around 2pm. ALL the animals know how to tell time because they start to migrate to the feeding area ahead of time to gather... More

There isn't a lot to this small reserve but you don't want to miss the 2:00 feeding time. The monkeys, tortoises and deer climb all over each other to get to the food pile. The animals are not afraid of humans and they walk next to you. There are also caged birds and snakes, for those who like to see... More

This is an interesting close-up view of the green monkeys, local deer and tortoises. Animals roam around freely and are not at all afraid of people. Although you should never reach out to touch wild animals, they come very close to you. I got some great photos. We got there around 2pm, which was a great time since the afternoon... More

A fun place to visit...this was our 2nd time. You'll see some interesting animals like mara and brocket deer, lots of colourful birds, iguana, tortoise and lots of green monkeys! Feeding time is at 2pm and you must see this! Right next door is Grenade Hall Forest & Signal Station so you can see both.

Our family with two kids aged 6 and 9, loved this excursion and kept us busy for a few hours during our tour of the island. The hiking trails provided a great energy release but bring plenty of water as it is humid. Be sure to plan to be there during the animal feeding as it was quite an experience.

Lots of interesting wildlife to see, but try to time your visit to coincide with feeding time at 2:00 pm, when the abundance of fruit tempts some of the shyer residents out of the shadows, and the antics of the monkeys get comical. But be aware - it can get very hot! The site doesn't get much breeze. The entry... More

Better paths and exhibits since we were last there 10 years ago. Green monkeys steal the show. Interesting signal station located there, great views from the top.

Went with my ambulant but disabled daughter. We were the only visitors which gave the place a sad feel. The walkways and paths are made from old brick stocks and are very uneven. The paths are all up and down and quite steep in places. There were some tortoises and monkeys to feed. The only other animals we saw were... More
