Lester Nanan comes from a family of environmentalists where the movement started as early as 1920, when his grandfather, Simon Oudit Nanan began petitioning the Government to save the wetlands and the Scarlet Ibis in Trinidad.  His petitions were successful and eventually became law in 1948.

The Caroni Swamp was later renamed after his father Winston Nanan, who struggled all his years to put the Caroni Swamp on the world map and transform it into a very sustainable and world-famous tourist attraction. Lester started birding as early as 17 years old when he would assist his father in documenting species in the Caroni Swamp and then later, the wider Trinidad and Tobago.

At the age of 22, he left the field of electrical engineering and joined the family’s business in which he excelled; and has since lead several bird watching expeditions around Trinidad and Tobago. He is an explorer, adventurer, a naturalist and conservationist.

Over the years, he has acquired a vast amount of knowledge on the country’s natural history and educates visitors on conservation and preservation towards obtaining a more sustainable lifestyle. His mission is to ensure that the Caroni Swamp becomes an environmentally sensitive area so that all animals that enter the swamp are protected.

Lester works together with conservation organisations, protected area managers, government agencies, the tourism board, tour operators and guides throughout the country, to develop sustainable tourism opportunities around bird watching and nature while at the same time working to build the demand for bird watching, photography and natural tourism.


Josh is a co-founder and the primary architect behind Bajnath Estate Hummingbird Sanctuary, which is nestled within Matura National Park in Trinidad. He is also a self-taught naturalist and full-time tour guide, who passionately lives his truth.

This truth or rather, his passion for nature is evident when one considers that Josh’s vision for Bajnath Estate was not only driven by his fascination with “insects, birds and butterflies,” but the realisation that his curiosity and insight could be channeled into a sustainable venture for his family and the community of Matura. This includes his charismatic wildlife photography skills with a special focus on birds.

Whether you prefer the charm of the Hummingbird Garden or crave adventure across the unbeaten path, Josh is certain to make your experience worthwhile.
