We have been to Radical Raptors three times now and had a great show on every occasion. We have seen something new every time. Our two small children are treated to an informative show about predatory birds where they get to interact with them. Their favorites are the owls and Mr. Bones the vulture. Radical Raptors is part of The... More

A group of us visited on a very cloudy day that turned into a torrential downpour and unfortunately our tour had to be cut short after only experiencing 3 of the raptors on our gloved hands. But up until then, it was quite special.

We love birds, so what a treat to visit this center and attend one of the educational flight displays! We even got to put on a leather glove to feed one of the owls (which oddly came and sat on my head, which is apparently very unusual) : - ) What we loved most about this was to witness the... More

What a pleasant surprise! I was dragged kicking and screaming by my wife who insisted on going and I finished up having one of the best educational and entertaining hours ever. The birds are amazing, but look out for the bad tempered vulture he/she is as mean as ugly but loads of fun.

We all really enjoyed the whole experience at Radical Raptors. It's obvious that the presenter was really passionate about the birds and their rehabilitation. Excellent interactive show. Everybody is given a glove and Barney will fly and sit on your hand. On leaving, my son wanted to adopt one of the birds. Would definitely recommend it.

Dennis Robson provides a first class presentation, close and personal with the birds of prey sitting right on your arm, worth every penny and moment

The highlight was the great information about the birds from someone who is obviously passionate about what he does. It was super to see the various species close-up after only seeing them at a distance prior to this. We really enjoyed the experience and will recommend it to others.

We were blown away by the wonderful bird show. The owls actually sit on each person's hand, so you get to experience the birds like never before. Wonderful show to learn lots and interact with the stunning birds. Will definitely go back.

This is a non-profit organisation so every visitor counts. This was such an amazing experience. The guide flies about 4 birds of prey. The owls are amazing, as you get to interact with them and they fly to everyone. The jackal buzzard display was amazing, he actual demonstrates using the jackal buzzard a prey/catch scene. So amazing!
