Enjoyed the visit and bird show very much. The bird show was very participative with birds sitting on the visitors while valuable information was shared about the birds and conservation. Ideal for children to learn about birds.

Wow! we just loved this visit. Thank you to the people of Radical Raptors for all you do and for a super flying display. Having one (actually a few) of these wonderful birds sitting on your hand and viewing them up close and personal while learning all about them was just fantastic - and the kids could not stop talking...

My son and I stopped by here on our way to Plettenberg Bay. Radical Raptors is a very well run and educational birds of prey sanctuary. Dennis, the owner, uses the birds that cannot be re-release into the wild to teach people the importance of all the birds of prey. The flying display was very well done with so much... More

We stopped for coffee at the Heath which is also very good! Saw the sign waited until it was open only a short while, being so close to a wild bird I have never seen before quite moving - I feel the bird sensed this and was so gentle - very moving for perhaps difference reasons for others.

The flying display was really great. The owner was very informative, really knows his birds and most importantly really cares about his birds. He releases as many as he can and keeps only those that cant survive in the wild on their own. Everyone got a turn to have each bird of prey land on their glove and he was... More

My husband is a zoologist by training and as a child he wanted to be a falconer. This was an amazing experience for him. We were lucky( and out of season) we were the only visitors today. The host encouraged us to put on a glove and allowed the hawks and owls to land on our fists. The birds were... More
