We were sceptical in the first half of the visit, but the second half had so many birds to see it was amazing. The feeders were well kept, being cleaned and refilled as we went round. The staff were all friendly.

Do this with Monkeyland. It will take upwards of an hour depending on how interested you become. It is a walk round self guided experience and you might do well to get the bird guide leaflet or a South African bird book. We became increasingly...More

This place exceeded our expectations. It has a vast selection of free-flying birds including African grey parrots and macaws. The walkways take you through the some into different zones where you can see the birds up close. Definitely worth a visit.

Sorry for the delay. There are steps and ramps but if you take it easy it should be ok.
