“Raptors experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We did the normal show/education at 10:30 (another show at 2 PM) which was great and very informative, but we also did the Raptor experience which is a one on one session with some of the birds where they come and sit on your arm and feed on some meat. Really awesome to have to have these birds so up close. Only negative was that the Fish Eagle seemed to have to smallest enclosure of all the birds. Take sun cream and camera!

“What a wonderful surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

My husband and I visited the Dullstroom Bird of Prey centre on a misty and windy day outside of the peak holiday season, arriving just in time for their daily 10:30 show. We were the only visitors there, but they still had the show just for us! It was amazing! The staff were very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable, the birds were really impressive and the show was really entertaining AND educational. The variety of birds in the enclosures was unbelievable. We really enjoyed the centre and highly recommend it to all with an interest in nature.

“worth the visit when you are here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

I made an effort to stay the night in dulstroom to visit the centre the following morning. I am impressed with the various owls. Didnt have much time to review the rest.

Only managed to see owl, falcon and eagle on the flight display that morning. The gentleman is a real entertainer, ably assisted by his two trainees.

It is a good place to practice your sports photography - but you must be prepared, which I wasnt.

Please drop by only if you are in the vicinity.

The bird of prey rehab centre is worth a visit to see and experience. An education and pleasure? The flying displays leave one in awe of the birds.
