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.

Hadn't really planned on a visit. But our guest house suggested we should. Well worth the effort. Great variety of birds, not all native Africa. Most the birds close enough to get good photos. Some very close on their feeding tables.

Lots of beautiful birds flying around in a HUGE space. The colors of these beautiful creatures were amazing and some of them quite tame. Warning you must NOT feed these birds

We purchased the two trip tour (with monkeyland) and had a great day out. The walkways were extremely clear and well presented. Staff clearly cared about the animals and our safety. The birds were well looked after and clearly happy with their environment.

No, you can use it within a few days. But also include the Jukani wildlife park into your combo ticket. It is wort a visit. Combo tickets can be used to visit the park in the morning, and maybe return late afternoon again... More
