Loved that you're right in the forest with the birds, you can hear them and see them close-up... So enjoyable for young and old alike!

We have been here many times and enjoy it each time. Love the different species of birds and just generally enjoy watching them behave at eating time.

“Great experience”

Never seen so many different bird species in my life. Good value for money, especially if you go for the package deal with Monkeyland
