I'm not really into birds but the whole experience was wonderful, it's set in beautiful grounds and the walk round is so interesting. There's also a lovely little café where we had a yummy afternoon tea

I can't describe the joy on the faces of my two kids. Birds' colours and features with all the green colour surrounded insured us that we are going to enjoy a lovely day.

The pictures on this post are incorrect. Garden of Eden is not the same as Birds of Eden. Garden of Eden is a boardwalk through a forest. We did not see any birds and the cost for South Africans is R280 each. Birds of Eden...More
