“Day trip to Birds of Eden”

Not massively impressed but it was a wet and cooler day which perhaps had an influence. Didn t see too many birds but this was probably due to the rain as they weren t flying around.

“Surprisingly enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I don't really like birds, especially not when at a zoo etc but I had a great time here. Get the book from reception which costs R20 as it makes it much more enjoyable, you tick them as you see them, kind of like bird bingo.

“Birds of Eden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Fascinating experience ad we should repeat it each time. To walk under canopy of the forest and see all the different types of birds is wonderful. One of the largest netted bird areas.

A chance to walk in a huge aviary and watch local birdlife in as close to their natural habitat as possible.
