All animals should be free. Although this "Cage" called a garden a far better that any other of its kind it's still sad to see how much emotional stress some

It's a quick loop through the trees for 70 odd rand per person for international tourists. Save your money.

I'm not really into birds but the whole experience was wonderful, it's set in beautiful grounds and the walk round is so interesting. There's also a lovely little café where we had a yummy afternoon tea

So many types of birds. You can get really close especially when they are at the feeding stations. Some are quite tame and not at all frightened to be close to you. My husband had one standing on each shoe trying to eat his shoelaces!
