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.

It was wonderful to see all the different types of birds. It was different not having a tour guide and i feel you could learn more if you did.

This is just beautiful. All the different birds and sitting in the restaurant (who makes yummy toasties) having lunch looking at all the different birds... It's very relaxing. I enjoyed it a lot and so did my 3 year old.

The world's largest aviary with boardwalks throughout and a huge selection of beautiful birds. Highly recommended. Allow at least an hour and a half to visit.
