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.

Going with small kids was amazing as they thoroughly enjoyed it. Pricey for kids under 5... And the restaurant is very expensive which is off putting. The experience and the set up is amazing

This is truly a paradise. Fantastic colourful bird species from all over the world have been rehabilitated in a brilliantly conceived massive aviary. We arrived sceptical as the billing was the world's largest single dome free flight structure but it may well be and if...More

This is a very pleasant place to visit for a couple of hours. There are many birds to see in forested surroundings. There are several feeding stations where birds tend to congregate and are more easily photographed. The visit is not guided so one can...More

This was a beautiful experience. The birds are so calm and one even came to sit on my shoulder, to bite my hat (I didn't even mind). I would definitely recommend this place to photographers or anyone that is an animal lover.
