My 3 children (5,11&12) loved their visit to the bird park. Feeding the lorikeets was definitely a highlight and also the bird show. They loved running around exploring and seeing all the different cages and birds and we enjoyed the toasted sandwiches from the shop.

This place is good for family visit - particularly with kids, as there are a number of different things that kids can enjoy. The bird show is well executed and enjoyed by all age groups. Quite a variety of birds - well kept and displayed.

Located right across the lovely Umgeni River. Easy to find and parking is available. Ideal for families with young children (and even not so young). A bird show is available at certain times. Be sure to check the times. It is quite nice. The park...More

Actually I did recommend the bird park by mentioning it was well worth visiting. It is beautifully situated, has wide variety of birds. They also rehabilitate birds there and offer some educational shows daily.
