Wildlife Sanctuaries

The Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary is an area known internationally as a bird watcher's paradise. A trip here combines birding and national history and a visit to the only inland island in the country.

The village dates back to the 1700s when the first settlers arrived, who used to send valuable dye wood across the Atlantic to be used in the textile industry.

After lunch in a local restaurant, you continue to the Baboon Sanctuary, where you learn about their work to protect the Howler monkey and where you have the opportunity to come up close to these beautiful creatures.
