I've never been anyway like this. So wonderful to see all these birds in a semi-wild habitat. So much diversity and we got really up close. The place is huge and so worth a visit!

While not all African birds there was a huge array of birds from around the world. Great for the little ones to see.

I think we probably liked monkeyland more but we still recommend doing both. It felt like the beginners version of bird watching. The whole walk through the enclosure was very relaxing and fun. The birds were beautiful and some of them came quite close.

We accidentally stumbled across this wonderful place, and was glad we did. Lovely setting, amazing birds. It really is a little Eden and well worth a stop off, only wish we could have walked around again.

Strolling about this place was great. So many types of beautiful birds with plenty of room to fly. Even had green parroquet land on my shoulders. Bonus. Many thanks for a great trip.

Sorry for the delay. There are steps and ramps but if you take it easy it should be ok.
