Overview
More
Birds of Eden is part of the South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA). Birds of Eden is the largest single-dome free flight aviary in the world, spanning 2.3 hectares of natural forests, streams and dams. With over a kilometre of walkways, visitors can experience the thrill of spotting almost 3500 previously captive birds of over 200 different species flying free and living natural lives. The scenery alone warrants a visit with hundreds of different plant and tree species plus there are giant fruit bats, golden-handed tamarins and the smallest of the antelopes, Blue duikers. Visits to Birds of Eden are self-guided and you are free to wander for as long as you wish at your own pace. Guided tours for group bookings can also be arranged on request at no additional cost.

I don't know why some reviews are less than excellent. As soon as we entered we saw fruit bats, perhaps not the most colorful and not even a bird but not something you would see elsewhere. After that it was just a never ending parade...More

The first 10 minutes in the large and tall netted reserve, we saw practically no birds and felt like asking for our money back. Then the keepers put out food and everything changed with a large variety of birds. There is walkway bridge through the...More

It was interesting to see all the different birds though not all are native to South Africa which I found strange. Equally it is necessary to accept all these wild birds caged together ?

This is an amazing place and brings you so close to nature. There is a lot to see and just keeps going on and on. Well worth a place along with monkey world.

We decided at the last moment to visit this venue and so glad we did. Well laid out and we have some wonderful pictures of SA birds.

I didn’t expect much but we really enjoyed the walk and observed a lot of beautiful birds. Monkey land is just next door if you are interested.

This free flying bird attraction has been engineered and thought out fantastically. The birds have so much space and a lot of them are extremely friendly especially the louries and conures who suddenly appear beside you. As do the golden wristed monkeys as you first...More
