This was a really fantastic experience. Highly recommended. The only advice I can give though is wear sunscreen, take water and wear a good hat - especially in summer - as this show needs a sunny day to proceed, and the seating is uncovered. It was very, very hot! Don't let this put you off though. A brilliant experience for old and young alike.

This was our second visit to Falcon Ridge and it was even better than the first visit. The hour long presentation flies by :-) The Falcons, eagles and Coowee the owl were amazing. You will not be sorry. Remember to take cash as it is a cash only venue.

Go early as the show starts at 10h30, this will give u time to view the birds in their cages. The show is an hour long. Please use sunscreen, caps & sunglasses as there is no shade cause you sit on the grass in an open area. You can buy water at their shop to keep hydrated as it gets extremely hot in the sun. We saw Eagle’s, Vultures, Hawks, Kites and Falcons that were the stars of the show. Overall a pleasant experience.

ne of the highlights of our trip to the Drakensberg was when we visited the Falcon Ridge Birds of Prey facility near Monks Cowl. I highly recommend this facility to anyone visiting the Central Drakensberg as not only do you get up-close and personal with a number of the bird of prey species but you also learn a great deal about the habits and wonders of these great birds, in one of the most scenic locations in our country. What I found most endearing was the way in which the very personality of each of the birds was described in detail. The work done to rehabilitate, protect and re-introduce these birds to the wild makes a significant difference to the conservation of our birds of prey in South Africa and I commend the men and women working at the facility for the difference they made in my life in such a short space of time, by introducing me to their wonderful array of birds.

This was a spectacular experience for the entire family. We learned a lot about these beautiful birds. We initially expected to just see these birds displayed and surprised to see them in flight. You cannot go to the berg without experiencing this show.

A fascinating morning watching these amazing predators doing what they do – hunting for their daily meal – a very informative presenter with willing participants who were on song and rightly so rewarded with chunks of raw chicken – I am not a fan of animal shows where the performers are mostly beaten into submission – this was natural birds in free as you go do as you will surroundings – a small gift shop – reasonably priced admission - no credit cards only cash or a handout bank details for an EFT – trusting to say the least – highly recommended

Such an incredible show. Every time we watch it the birds give us a new experience. You can see how attached the people and birds are to each other.

Magnificent displays that show the birds in their natural spirit. The handlers are knowledgable, well spoken and have such passion for the birsd in their care. A definate must see for anyone traveling to the area.

I took my 84 year old mother to see the show. She loved the show and the birds. So did I.

Flying displays are at 10:30, weather permitting, so do phone ahead and check if the weather seems iffy (windy or raining). The team that flew the birds is very dedicated, knows their birds well. It was a most informative and enjoyable show. The flying show included vultures, the beautiful fish eagle, a Wahlberg eagle, a Cape Eagle Owl and I think a Peregrine Falcon. There were other birds of prey in the cages.

Seating is on stand-alone plastic chairs. These can be moved if someone moves their chair too close and one is concerned about social distancing.

There is a lady that sells beautifully-made, pretty woven baskets, place mats, hats etc as well as some bead & seed jewellery at the entrance. Well worth having some spare cash on hand if you need any of these items.
