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.

Very peaceful and well constructed, you would not realise you were in an enclosure during the walk around the park. The birds are amazing, with lots of species within the facility.

This is truly a paradise. Fantastic colourful bird species from all over the world have been rehabilitated in a brilliantly conceived massive aviary. We arrived sceptical as the billing was the world's largest single dome free flight structure but it may well be and if...More
