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 beautiful exhibit of birds. These are all rescue birds who now have the opportunity to live out their lives in safety as they cannot be returned to the wild.

A wonderful spot to walk around quietly and to see the birds in as near natural habitat as we are likely to see. Go early or late as when busy noisy kids and even noisier American tourists slightly spoil it!

Its a large enclosed aviary with an enormous number of species and birds. Not all are native African but they are spectacular.
Some of the parrots have been adopted here and are less afraid of us than you might think. Watch your glasses and jewellery. Some also will bite.
Its possible to get great photos that look very natural and its well worth an hour of your time.

this is adjacent to an elephant sanctuary and you can visit both on a joint ticket parking is free. you are in a huge aviary and the birdlife is more than used to visitors. the natural colouring of the birds is at times quite breathtaking
all around the walkways are feeding stations with seating closeby you can actually see more by spending some time sitting still and the curious birds will come very close to you i even had a parrott perched on my foot picking at the laces! well worth a combined visit with the elephants costing about £20 per person

Small bird enclosure, interesting and good value for money. Can do this as well as the other two parks (monkey land and elephant park) in an afternoon
