A Carnival Of Wildlife

From: £Contact us

With tropical savannah, rainforest, woodland and mangrove swamp, Trinidad is a paradise for birders - more than 430 species include the elusive speckled tanager and the spectacular scarlet ibis.

Visitors to Trinidad can expect to find a diverse array of wildlife. The mysterious mangroves of Caroni Swamp are home to the island's national bird, the scarlet ibis. The birding only gets better as you head to the Asa Wright Nature Centre in the forested highlands of the Northern Range, where you can see oilbirds, bearded bellbirds and collared trogons.

Virtually anywhere in Tobago also offers a good vantage point for spotting birds, so keep your eyes peeled and your binoculars or camera ready for the treats that await in Main Ridge Forest Reserve. Yet it's not all about birds… both Trinidad and Tobago have a surprising variety of other wildlife – from leatherback turtles to freshwater manatees, and from fruit bats to howler monkeys and white-fronted capuchins.
