The walk follows over 1km of wooden board walks and bridges across streams and is entirely wheelchair friendly and ideal for the elderly wanting to visit the forest. There is a number of wooden benches and tables along the trail to sit, snack, picnic or enjoy your 'padkos'. Water and ablution facilities.

Trail of around 2 km in the forest. Relaxing. Need to be attentive to be able to track the birds. If you're coming from Plettenberg, you need to do a U turn to get to the place.

We love bird watching but do not agree with Zoos' / animals or birds in enforced captivity. Visited with some trepidation but found that whilst contained within a very large enclosed area all the birds have complete freedom of movement. No cages. Really enjoyed the...More

Birds in a tent as big that when you walk you forget that you are not in free nature. Really an amazing collection of different species of the birds from South Africa.

This is a nice place to go for a walk in the forest. The trees are very impressive and one walks on a very well maintained boardwalk. It's not a long walk but very pleasant. We spent less than an hour there but enjoyed it....More

The vast space is closed with the net. The most interesting part is toward the end, where are the flamingos and other floating birds, so count your time properly!
