Walk through enclosure with amazing birds. Parrots circling in the canopy. Blood red scarlet ibis dotting the trees and cheeky flamingos displaying for your cameras. Loads of other awesome little colourful and exotic birds up close too

Not only are the birds amazing, but the guides are expressive and wonderful to interact with. Along with going to the Monkeyland Sanctuary, I think this is a must see for people of all ages!
