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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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,... More

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.... More

This serene beautiful ecosystem is amazing to observe the many species of birds lizards and iguanas as they appear in their natural state. Every effort has been made to conserve the natural environment and to allow the observer to walk along the trails quietly and peacefully. The tranquility here is much needed to relax The sounds of the animals are... More

This is such a beautiful surprise to discover a natural wild foul sanctuary in the middle of an industrial park. The walk is cool but walk with bug spray

Went here through my job to carry some underprivileged children to explore nature, the tour guides were very knowledgeable...but the mosquitoes were HUGE, I am typing this and my pores are raising, make sure to walk with your citronella. The place generally need some upkeep though to make it more awesome
