“Definitely worth while”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We went to the Eagles Encounters as a family and had a most enjoyable time. The personal encounters with the black eagle and the owls were awesome. Our 4 year old son loved it. Take the kids there. It's a great educational experience for all.

“Worth the while”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Worth the money and one contributes to the rehabilitation of these amazing birds. Was quite eventful the have birds of prey landing on your hands and to be able to handle the baby owls. An encounter any kid would love to experience - even the big ones!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Very educational and a little intimidating to be so close to the birds. There some fantastic moments when the birds to flap their wings or stare at you, a really fun day.

“Amazing birds of prey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Being able to touch baby owls, and interact with huge birds of prey including black eagles and martial eagles, was just amazing. Totally worth the R50 entry, even if you dont see the flying displays.

“Amazing! Loved the baby owls!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The Western Cape has lots of bird attractions and this combines the best of all of them! They handle both resue birds and do rehabilitation for return to the wild. They had lots of different types of birds to view up close including the opportunity to pet some of the baby owls. They had different activities throughout the day including flying demonstrations and feeding. Even if you've been to other bird attractions, don't miss this one a short 45 minute drive from Cape Town.
