Owner description: The walk follows over 1km of wooden board walks and bridges across streams and is entirely wheelchair friendly and ideal for the elderly wanting to visit the forest. There is a number of wooden benches and tables along the trail to sit, snack, picnic or enjoy your 'padkos'. Water and ablution facilities.

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

Fantastic! Go at your own pace through the trees on a wooden path that takes you past a waterfall and across a wooden bridge. See the birds close up at feeding time around the bird feeders and see them fly from tree to tree. Walk among the flamingos, ducks and ibis. Such a sight to see. End your walk by the water at the cafe for a cappuccino or milkshake. You make see some baboons to and from the sanctuary along the road.

There is no better way to get close up and personal with wild birds flying free than at Birds of Eden. This unique location offers a massive covered in valley with board walks to wander witness some amazing bird life most wonderful of all are the Knysna Lorrie, indigenous only to the Knysna area and the most beautiful birds. A wonderful way to spend an hour or two.

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!

You can do this on your own, with family, kids or friends, it is very safe and an easy short walk in a forest (it is wheelchair friendly). On your way to Plettenberg Bay (Knysna behind you) - turn left from the highway, parking next to the highway. Bring your own picnic something to eat and listen to the birds - a peaceful walk. The trees are old, very interesting to read more about them. Lots of photo opportunities, not crowded - you need to pay a small entrance fee. A must stop in the Garden Route. Knysna is know for its forests and this way you can experience it without a effort on you way.
