Owner description: 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.

Nice big area, but the price (260 rand per adult, kids half) is a rip off. No guide. No educational signs. Guidebook at extra cost.
The money is better spend in a public national park or game drive.

This place is excellent for families but the entry fees are too much high and just rich people can enjoy this amazing cage

After the hectic guided monkey tour, this was a peaceful experience, although not quiet, some of the birds can be noisy! Just lovely to wander through this amazing place at your own pace. I would recommend a bird book, and binoculars-we had neither, but still enjoyed it immensely

We spent at least an hour wandering around this amazing aviary observing and experiencing the birds. All kinds of colorful birds from around Africa and other places. Birds that like to be on the ground, around water, and flying high in the treetops we're all there. We definitely recommend stop for your self guided tour.

It was great going round the aerial walkways and seeing the birds feeding a flying around but when went into the pond and garden areas it was absolutely astounding to see all the different birds just mingling with the tourist. I wish the grand children could have been us.
