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.

This is a vast netted enclosure, so large that you can see flocks of birds flying around with ample space for them to thrive. An excellent environment in which to see such a huge variety of wonderful creatures. Yes it is a bit expensive, particularly when you also have to pay for the guidebook, but for us it was well worth it.

The title says it all. Perhaps it was too hot, but not many birds about except the flamingos near the end of the walk through the park. Wouldn't rush back.

This is a beautifully presented bird sanctuary. Fantastic sightings in magnificent surroundings. The best I've seen in a sanctuary for birds. Highly recommended to visit. Buy the guidebook so you know what to look for.

A great place to take the family. Up close and personal with the beautiful birds and the Avery is amazing... it's almost unbelievable that something so huge is a refuge for all theses birds. A remarkable effort to make this such a stunning sanctuary.
