We had a very exciting and informative experience. The guide was very good. My 3 yr old was so excited to get the chance to hold 2 owls and a different bird species.

Definitely stop by! Feeding is at 11:00, 13:00, 15:00. This is a birds of prey rehab center (not breeding). Very good care shown for the birds here. Suede gloves are provided so that birds can perch on you. Very informative and will be enjoyed by all ages. Even the 2 year old next to me was captivated when a bird... More

World class 'attraction'. Second time we have been, and both adults and kids (9,6&4) loved it! Informative and thrilling especially when the birds fly so close and silently past you! This is a lovely outing, highly recommend making a trip here, visiting Radical Raptors and then having coffee and lunch and a browse through the lovely shops on site. Thoroughly... More

I went with my family, kids 4 & 6, and didnt quite know what to expect but the proximity to the birds was amazing; they flew in and around us and not 'over there' - it brought about real appreciation and was extremely informative. The standard of the facilities and the way the birds were cared for is exemplary -... More

I have visited this place many times, but none like the last one. Definitely a place to visit because the bird encounters are one of a kind, and it is awesome to see all the rehabilitation that takes place over there.

Here's a man that really knows about all native birds of prey in South Africa, superb with both adults and children. Lots of opportunities to take some stunning photos with a man who CARES about the education of people in regards to birds of prey.
