We observed the largest numbers of scarley ibuses and flamingoes that I have ever seen. The y return to the swamp in the late afternoon to roost for the night. Our captain maintained quite a distance from the birds which made them a bit hard to see nd photograph. To his credit, we did not disturb them.

At the edge of the Caroni Swamp in central Trinidad, my family and I boarded a pirogue near dusk. The animals provided quite a show and the tour guide was knowledgeable. We said Caiman, snakes, crabs, and the resplendent scarlet ibis returning home to nest. A must see

We had a lovely and safe experience on the boats. There was a lot to see in the swamp area, which is unexpectedly large and eventually washes into the sea, if followed all the way down. We recommend going 1-2 hours before sunset, as the birds come to roost in the mangrove trees, which provides a good opportunity to see them.

We had the opportunity to see flocks of the national bird of Trinidad and Tobago, the Red Ibis. Lots of blue heron and white stork. Even a tree snake or two.

We were taken for about 2 hours, including the time taken to go to and from each site.

The flight of the scarlet ibis overhead to roost for the night is spectacular. Beyond that the swamp is pleasant but there is not a lot of other wildlife. Nice way to get away from the busy city into a quiet place. The boats have a guide who is adequate. You just need to arrive at the ramp at the correct time.
We decided to do it at the very last minute and found a lovely man, Stephen Broadbridge who was willing to pick us up from our abode and take us to the ramp. He is a naturalist but honestly I would hire him for a more exotic adventure. That said he did take wonderful photos and shared them with us.

A really lovely way to spend time in Trinidad. The Caroni Swamp is a spectacle and well worth it. We did the tour as part of a group and spent a fabulous couple of hours touring the mangroves and eventually seeing the spectacle of the Scarlett Ibis returning to roost. Photos don't do it justice.

The serenity of this bejeweled wetland area provides a welcome respite from our overcrowded highways and dusty towns. Nanan tours in particular, provide an interesting and informative insight into our beautiful fauna and flora. The guides painstakingly point out the hidden creatures, be they reptilian, avian, or piscean. Even the pesky insects are given their due.
The scarlet ibis, however, are the highlight of the tour. When these magnificent creatures begin to fly in there are oohs and aahs from excited sightseers sitting in the boats. Cameras and cell phones are busy recording the passage of these birds. When they do nest on their island of choice, however, they transform what was a green island of mangrove bushes into a blaze of colour, the scarlet of the densely packed ibises interspersed with white and some tricolour herons.
That this extraordinary sight is only available at dusk, deprives cruise ship visitors of an amazing opportunity to observe one of the truly spectacular scenes in Trinidad. They, unfortunately, have to be back on board by 6pm.

Easy ride from Port of Spain. They run boat tours only. Public and private tours available. There office is open from 2:30 to 6:00 daily. You will take a boat through the very well developed mangroves and see different birds and animals. The highlight is watching the scarlet ibis flocks and flamingoes fly to one area to roust the night. Bring your binoculars and cameras as this is one of the only places in the world that you can find these birds in great numbers.

The Trip into the Caroni Swamp is a must do activity for any visitor to Trinidad. My visit was on a picture perfect and clear sky day. The boats are flat bottom and the waters are calm for those who are concerned with sea sickness. I have never seen anyone get sick on these trips. The tour guides are very informative and the birds, mangrove, crabs, and other flora and fauna are to behold. You must go. You will never forget you visit and you will take so many keeper photos on the way.

This was my first visit to Caroni Swamp and bird sanctuary.
It was a very informative, peaceful and fun filled evening.
We saw many species of birds, reptiles and other animals.
The grand finale was seeing the scarlet ibis return to the swamp to rest.

One of the highlights of visiting Trinidad is the Ramsar protected Caroni Swamp and Bird Sanctuary. This swamp is the second largest in Trinidad after Nariva Swamp (and equally worthwhile place to visit). I had read that this was a “must do” visit and the best opportunity to see Trinidad’s national bird – the Scarlet Ibis. I had read that the chances of seeing the birds was high, with the potential to see 20 or 30 birds at once. Nothing prepared me for what I saw!

We booked a tour with Nanan’s Caroni Bird Sanctuary Tours (I have also reviewed) via Sensational Tours and Transport (recommend both). As we moved along the canal, almost instantly we stopped to see two beautiful Cook’s Tree Boas barely above our heads. We continued into the mangroves and saw two Tropical Screech Owls. We saw a Silky Anteater sleeping, numerous crabs climbing the mangroves and a few random ibis in amongst the trees (difficult to photograph). We saw numerous types of heron and egrets, from Night Herons to Snowy Egret.

Eventually the canal through the mangroves opened up into the greater wetlands, surrounded by roosting trees. The boat stopped at a mooring point a fair distance from the roosting trees. And then the magic happened.

Literally THOUSANDS of birds arrived to roost for the night. This wasn’t a few birds, or a hundred. It was mesmerising. Scarlet Ibis arrived in huge flocks every few minutes. While the Ibis flew in high, Snowy Egrets arrived coasting along just above the surface of the water. A small group of American Flamingos fished just in front of the tree to add pink to the vibrant red and white.

I had my 100-400mm lens on my camera, and the trees were very much at the end of this range, so I would suggest binoculars or a spotting scope. A phone camera really won’t do this justice. Especially as the sun will be setting near this point.

We watched the birds for roughly an hour before heading back. As the light was fading, we didn’t stop as much on the way out, as visibility of animals was much reduced. We arrived back at the launch point at 18:00.

I can’t suggest this enough. Any trip to Trinidad needs this to be on the itinerary. I would do this again, and even look at a private tour to avoid the loud talking tourists (a couple thinking taking phone calls were appropriate) and people standing up while photographers were trying to get shots.
