I visited the Pitch Lake and a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic Rastafarian took us on the tour. He was excellent and it was remiss of me not to remember his name. There was a lot of education to be had but the highlight of the trip was bathing in the water pockets. Beware, you smell a bit offensive after due... More

A small trail winds around a pond showcasing local trees, birds and flowers of which some are named in Latin and local language. It's wonderful to listen to the serenity in the bird calls and find yourself in a place and time where the ugly sounds of traffic and industry didn't interfere A guided tour is an option if you...

this place is a little gem in the grounds of an oil refinery- brilliant amount of bird species very peaceful with walks to do. Lovely and also great value for money- worth the trip about an hour from POS I'm a taxi.

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 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
