Caves & Critters
Hop on board with SunTours Barbados and experience two of the most stunning sites this little island has to offer! With tons of island tours offered and exciting things to do in Barbados, this excursion should fall at the top of the list for any nature lover!
First, explore the geological wonder that is Harrison’s Cave. In the heart of Barbados, sits this historic cave discovered in the 18th century. Several attempts to explore the cave were unsuccessful until 1974 when cave adventurer Ole Sorensen and Barbadians Allison Thornhill and Tony Mason rediscovered and mapped the cave. After this re-exploration, the Barbados government was then able to develop the cave into the extraordinary attraction we know today.
Board their electric trams and travel underground discovering the natural stalactites and stalagmites in their quirky formations like The Village, The Great Hall and The Altar. Allow yourself to be dazzled by the naturally flowing streams and waterfalls and crystal clear pools as you navigate through the deep crystallized limestone cave.
After exploring the dramatic cave, you’ll make your way, above ground to The Barbados Wildlife Reserve, established in 1985. As you take a leisurely stroll through the four acres of forest, admiring the view and the especially fresh air, you’ll get the chance to get up close and personal with the charming animals. From the famous Barbadian Green Monkey, to the deer, mara, tortoise and beautiful peacocks roaming the grounds, there’ll be no limit to friends you can make. As you continue along the winding brick path you may find yourself in the aviary, admiring the breathtaking parrots and macaws or in the Reptile house, where you can become close acquaintances with the snakes, if you so desire.
After, enjoy a scenic drive exploring the rugged, untouched beauty of Barbados’ East Coast before making your way back to your designated drop off points.
The Caves & Critters Tour is an amazing experience for the whole family and is especially exciting for the kids as there is tons to see, discover and learn!
