A wonderful experience. The centre is run by an experienced falconer and his brother. We had the falconer's brother, and boy did he know his stuff. Luckily there were only four of us in the audience so we had lots of fly-to-the-glove experience with the Little Owl and Barn Owl. You are given an enlightening commentary which doesn't drop in...

The owner and his brother are such warm souls. There love of the birds is very apparent but the rate and number of releases into the wild is what really inspires. This is a sanctuary, not a zoo, not a money making scheme but trully a group of people doing something amazing for our wildlife.

Too be able to join these magnificent creatures in nature whilst learning interesting facts about them was an experience of a lifetime. Truly a must when in that area 👌

We visited with our extended family with 5 kids aged between 3 and 7. They all loved the show which was very informative. The adults also really enjoyed it.

Hi Chris, We are terribly sorry for your bad experience, but please realize that you have given Radical Raptors a bad rating. We are a rehab centre for birds of prey and are not any way linked to the restaurant. We work very hard to keep our people happy and our ratings good. Please reconsider rating us poorly for a...

Another great wildlife adventure game on the Garden Route. What makes Radical Raptors really work is not so much the birds on exhibit (many tethered in open pens) so much as the expertise and passion of the falconers. So be sure to catch the 45-minute shows - 11, 1 & 3 except most Mondays. The excellent Heath Restaurant, shops &... More

I took my 4 and 7 year old. The show is informative - with a range of birds perching on spectator hands and others buzzing low overhead. Lots of detail done in an entertaining way. A great way to keep kids occupied for an hour. And outside there is a massive play area where again children can play.
