    We booked the Lion Cabin & it was worth it. To hear the Lions Roar at 5am made the hair on our arms stand up !!
    The food was cooked for us by delightful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. To see all the animals and hear about their stories was one of the highlights of our visit.
    Keri looked after us on our tour & was so attentive during our two night stay.
    The gift shop and jewellery on offer was amazing & a few purchases were made.

    This is a spectacular bird paradise near Plettenberg Bay. I was expecting a typical aviary, but this is huge in a natural wooded area with many trees; shrubs and streams providing for over 400 species of birds that provide a cacophony of song. How they managed to put a huge high wide net over it is a mystery. They have been collected from people all over the world and most are not indigenous to South Africa. They have built a wooden walkway right through the park and you get to see many species on your walk. For me, the Flamingo Dam was a highlight. One bird was even tame enough to sit on a visitors shoulder. We got to see many birds up close and personal most of which I had never seen before. This is a must see when you are in Plett.

    This is a great place to visit where the tours are guided. Much useful information is learned from the expert guide, and there are many species of monkeys/apes to be easily seen in a natural environment. We bought a combined Bird/monkey ticket, which proved very worthwhile.

    Beautiful snake habitat displays arranged in a way for visitors to spot the snakes easily. Our guide, Connor, is very friendly and knowledgable. Was absolutely worth the visit.

    A well-run, professional, ethical, established elephant park.
    The elephants are well cared for in a natural environment. The rangers were informative, and professional. We read reviews that criticised the park for rushing your experience but we did
    Not find this to be the case at all, the rangers were clear with their instructions gave us plenty of time to feed and photograph the gracious animals. Whilst they were stood behind a bar for feeding this was for visitor safety and the well-being of the animals. It is true you can’t stroke the elephants now, but it feels amazing when they feed from your hand and their trunk tickles your palm! A really tranquil experience!

    We loved our visit to Jukani. Only thing I would say is it should be a guided tour for all who visit.

    Myself and my family spent a lovely morning walking through the forest with Mark. The private nature reserve is a pristine undisturbed area of natural beauty and a real treat to experience. Mark is a thoughtful and informative guide with plenty of stories to tell from his years of working with animals and in nature. A definite recommendation!
