“Great outing for all ages”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Eagle Encounters has a great variety of bird species. You can really get up close and personal to these majestic creatures. The staff are knowledgable and friendly. Some might think the entry fee is a bit steep but it is reallt worth it. Great to see people doing such a great job to conserve these under-rated predators.

“Been 6 times now, good mix of tourism and rehabilitation”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We love a little trip in here. My 4yr old loves to have the owls on her arm.
Really good that these people take in so many casualty birds, bit of a job! Nice that someone cares, so happy to pay the 50rand entry. Knowledgeable staff and a good place to spend an hour.
Good to combine with the other attractions in Spiers.

“What A Great Experience for the Whole Family”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Whether or not you're a bird fan - this place is so much fun! Pet and hold owls, eagles, snakes, and tiny chameleons. See a large variety of birds from all over. Staff is super-friendly. Entry fee more than reasonable.
Oh, and you've got to ask the guy who runs the place (maybe he's the owner?) to play "Gangam Style" to the owls. You will not believe how they move to the music.
