A well run rescue and release rehabilitation centre for birds of prey. The demonstration was highly entertaining with close up encounters involving various species of birds. Numerous photo and video opportunities as we went during off peak season. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Well worth a visit if you enjoy animals in general.

A small, privately run raptor rescue centre, where visitors can see owls, eagles & buzzards close-up. During the flying displays with owls, rock kestrel & jackal buzzard the birds perch on the visitors' gloves (which mesmerised any kids brave enough to try) Staff are very knowledgeable and evidently concerned for the welfare of the birds they are preparing for release...

Really enjoyed seeing the birds and the twice daily show was lots of fun .You have the opportunity to interact with birds of prey as well as learning how important these birds are to the eco system.

Visited Radical Raptors for the 2nd time, this time with our kids. Loved it still. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the show. Birds look well cared for. And its great that if rehabilitated they are released back into the world! Entrance pricey but its going to a good cause. Great work by everyone there!

Your birds are well cared for and trained. Your staff are doing a tremendous job caring for the birds .However on the day we went we had a trainer that seemed a little short with the questions asked . I felt he could have provided better answers when asked about the birds. The staff at the desk was outstanding and... More

It's not every day that you get to experience birds of prey in a natural environment so we jumped at the chance. It was very informative and educational and the birds in the show were simply amazing! The dogs at the end were a great treat!

we came across this attraction when travlling between plettenberg bay and Knysna. The entrance fee of R120 per adult is high, but the proceeds go towards the rehabilitation of birds of pray back into the wild (where possible). The shows which are at 11h00 and 15h00 daily is awesome. During the show the birds fly over the audience with great... More

An informative and enjoyable experience. Allows you to get up close and personal with some special birds. The experience is brief but worthwhile.
