The Asa Wright Experience

One of the best possible introductions to the natural riches of the Caribbean based at the world-famous Asa Wright Nature Centre on Trinidad, together with the wonderful beaches, tropical seabirds and coral reefs of Tobago.

Situated amongst acres of pristine rainforest, the view over the valley from Asa Wright is superb, while the birding - sometimes only a few metres away - is spectacular.  One special bird here is the nocturnal oilbird, a fruit-eating relative of nightjars, and one of the only birds in the world to use echo-location. 

Tobago, Trinidad's much smaller neighbour, with its lovely beaches, coral reefs and seabird islands, makes a fine contrast for the second part of our stay.
