  • Guided Barbadian Green Monkey Nature Walk - Traverse through nature and admire the monkeys, which were originally brought over as pets during the slave trade more than 350 years ago from Gambia and other regions of West Africa. They are called the Barbados Green Monkey because you will not find them naturally existing anywhere else in the world and they are actually green. The monkeys have a thick coat of fur, which is generally a brownish grey color, but as though they've spent hours in the salon, the monkeys have highlights of yellow and green that makes their overall appearance green in color.
