Eagles Flying is a scientifically run Wildlife Sanctuary specializing on Birds of Prey and Owls. We focus on "hands on" interaction between our well trained animals and our visitors. During our educational flying demonstrations members of the audience can have a bird of prey land on their hand or have Eagles, Falcons, Hawks or Vultures stoop inches over their heads while Scientists inform in a friendly and fun way. Our visitors can also visit our unique "Touch-Zoo" where they can play and pet "Tui & Alan" our Foxes, get pick pocketed by "Grizzly" our tame Raccoon, have "Monty" our 4 meter Python around their shoulders or get up close and personal with any of the other unusual animals. Get closer than you have ever been to the masters of the sky. Eagles Flying really is an unforgettable experience and a must see for people of all ages and interests.

So glad we decided to visit, a rare chance to get up close to birds of prey in a safe environment. Plenty of information about all of the birds. It was well worth the admission fee, If we are in the area again we will definitely go back again.....

I have been to the Sanctuary twice. On both occasions I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I plan to go again when my Grand-daughter is a little older and can appreciate what the Sanctuary has to offer. The staff are amazing and always willing to do whatever is necessary to make sure you have a good time.

Have visited eagles flying numerous times as we are lucky enough to live nearby, very educational and interesting day out with plenty to do and see, staff are brilliant and nothing is to much trouble, there is also a pet farm which is so well kept and spotlessly clean and it's obvious to see how well cared for and loved...

What a great way to spend an afternoon, I try and come to Eagles Flying twice a year. We have no children but adore animals. We have taken young kids (relatives of ours) to this before and they love petting the animals. The bird show is excellent and interactive. The animals are so timid and love to be petted roaming...

Brilliant! Great selection of animals on the walk in, this place is not just about the birds! The bird bit is outside, but there's also a good indoor section to walk around after the bird performance.

A great hands on experience, one of the best free flight bird shows we have been to. Staff so friendly obviously love what they do and so knowledgable. Everyone was included in the show which made it feel more special. The birds were amazing and the little petting zoo was a little gem. Will be recommending all the family pay... More
