5 Eco-System Series: TROPICAL SAVANNAH

The Caribbean's response to the Serengeti Plains of Africa, Sanctuary Belize's 2,000-acre stretch of sub-tropical savannah serves as home to a diverse array of rare plant species. Wispy grasses, scattered shrubs and thick-barked solitary trees protect a variety of animals, tropical birds and amphibians that take refuge in this unique landscape.

5 Eco-System Series: RIVERINE

Sanctuary Belize encompasses 9 miles of the Sittee River, a diversified habitat where fresh and salt water mingle to create a haven for wildlife.

Manatees, rays and barracuda cruise its deep river waters, while inquisitive turtles, egrets and Morelet's crocodiles patrol the surface. All for our residents to experience and enjoy up close and personal.
