Owner description: Birds of Eden is part of the South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA). Birds of Eden is the largest single-dome free flight aviary in the world, spanning 2.3 hectares of natural forests, streams and dams. With over a kilometre of walkways, visitors can experience the thrill of spotting almost 3500 previously captive birds of over 200 different species flying free and living natural lives. The scenery alone warrants a visit with hundreds of different plant and tree species plus there are giant fruit bats, golden-handed tamarins and the smallest of the antelopes, Blue duikers. Visits to Birds of Eden are self-guided and you are free to wander for as long as you wish at your own pace. Guided tours for group bookings can also be arranged on request at no additional cost.

A fantastic construction, seems humane, lots of variety. If you like birds then worth a visit. Combined ticket with monkey sanctuary next door is good value.

There is a deal with the birds of Eden, monkey land and the big cat park. Buying a combined ticket for all three works out a good deal.

We visited both the birds of Eden and monkeyland in one day. Both worth a visit and very interesting for young and old. You wouldn't spend a whole say here.

Restaurant at the birds of Eden was not great but we were the only ones in these??? We suggest you bring a picnic.

I have wanted to do this for a long time as I had fond memries of visiting birdworld in Cape Town when I was a kid. Although I enjoyed walk, I didn't feel overwhelmed by the birds. It is a lovely place and you can stay as long as you like and identify the birds in your own time.

I think this would be better if I was on holiday with children and looking for something to do.
