“birds of a feather”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

a must for twitchers but anyone with a vague interest in nature will love it too. There are hundreds of different birds in what seems to be the wild as the area is covered by a huge net that is impossibly high and you forget it is there

“What beautiful birds in a lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The aviary is so well laid out, with a very pleasant walking path which was like walking in a jungle. We were able to very close to many of the birds and got some great photos. It was a relaxing visit which we really enjoyed.

“Close up of the birds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Really enjoyed our time at the garden of Eden , so many beautiful birds to see, so take your camera. A couple of tips buy the book with shows you the birds in the park, the other thing is sit by the bird feeders and be quite and wait for the birds to fly in you will get some great shots. The other thing just before you get to the garden of Eden is a little complex of about for art stores, they are well worth a visit .we got most of our presents here you can also get a great meal as well

“A piece of Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

A gentle 20 minute meander through the indigenous forests of Knysna. The pathways are also wheelchair friendly. It was so peaceful and food for the soul. Absolutely stunning!

“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

It is a nice area but just a very short walk. Not realy worth it to drive out there just for that. It might be nice to have a picnic there.
