Trinidad and Tobago is Bat Central! There are 75 different kinds; including fish eaters, nectar feeders and even blood-lapping vampire bats. The myriad of bats we’ll be viewing in Tamana are insectivores and fruit eaters!

Bat sequences on David Attenborough’s award winning documentaries were filmed in Trinidad.
Tamana is located along the central range of Trinidad. One hour scenic drive from LimeLand House through wonderful rural Trinidad brings us literally to the end of the road!

From here we put on our sneakers and hike up a steady gradient to a network of limestone caves. The walk takes half an hour. There is an existing track but it’s important to remember your footing. The terrain is secondary rainforest so be aware of slippery roots and leaves.

On reaching the caves, we’ll enter and witness the bats roosting within. As dusk falls, you’ll see the main attraction of this unique tour!

The bats flit out of the caves one by one at first. Then a few more. Then more…more…and as night falls, hundreds of thousands of bats fly out of the caves!

The awesome spectacle of over a million insectivorous bats flying from a small cave entrance in the forest floor is a must for true nature lovers and scientists. It is a marvel of coordination. To see firsthand the precision of bat sonar orientation is a special experience.

This is an up-close and personal moment. The bats filter straight past onlookers into the night forest on their quest for airborne food.
