Off-The-Beaten-Track 4×4 Jeep Safari

Our 4×4 St Kitts tours take you off the beaten track and into the hinterland of beautiful St Kitts in specially modified 4×4 Land Rover Defenders. Drive up into the mountains from the placid Caribbean coast stopping initially to visit a private, Sugar Plantation Home, at Shadwell Estate, built in the mid 1700’s. Following a walk around the grounds, and a tour inside the Great House itself, the Jeep Safari continues off-the-beaten- track to a second plantation Great House at Whyte’s Estate, about a mile away. At this beautiful Plantation Home, you can enjoy another walkabout of stunningly landscaped gardens and an old Sugar Plantation Great House. Next we travel through sugar cane fields, quaint rural villages and eventually the cool mountain rainforest arriving at another private property with panoramic mountain top views, 1200 feet above the sea. Here experience a not to be forgotten birds eye view out over our island home as well as a delicious island picnic of exotic Caribbean fruits, island sweets, local rum and homemade juices.

The 4×4 Jeep Safari then travels down from this mountain top view back through a lushly forested valley to reemerge at the rainforest edge, in swaying fields of sugar cane from where there are spectacular views down over our windswept Atlantic coastline. After driving a short distance from the rainforest edge we stop to visit the fascinating ruins of an old Muscavardo Sugar Factory.

We tour the ancient sugar factory ruins on foot, exploring its picturesque old Windmill and Boiling House while hearing fascinating stories about sugar cane cultivation on St. Kitts and how brown sugar, molasses and rum were produced here in colonial times. The Jeep Safari then continues down from the mountains towards the Atlantic coast eventually stopping at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, built in the mid-1700’s and perched on a high ridge above Cayon village. This fascinating cut stone church once served as the Sugar Planters’ church but today, is a much loved community church, with an Afro-eccentric feel.

We then continue back to our starting point by traveling along the windswept Atlantic coast road, never to repeat the route used on the way out. A not to be missed 4×4 driving adventure to have an up-close look at the Sugar Heritage of beautiful St. Kitts as well as an unforgettable off the beaten track photo safari.
