Owner description: 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.

An excellent experience with many beautiful birds, many of whom are happy to interact directly and are a lot of fun. The forest habitat provided is beautiful and in most of the aviary you are unaware of the netting.

A visit to Birds of Eden is a must when in the area . A self guided tour to see the most beautful birds in a paradise like environment.
Could have stayed longer than the almost two hours we spent there .

We loved our time at Birds of Eden. Very interesting to walk through the entire complex looking for, and identifying, the many different birds. Highly recommend this but don't rush it and do buy a guide book which was invaluable!!

We planned on an hour visit but ended up staying 3 hours, the more you look the more there is going on. We appreciated the no-touch no-feed policy, though some friendly parrots were very keen to greet the people. Very well planned out, the path winds throughout the area. The shop did not seem to sell a detailed bird book so it may be handy to have one with you if you are keen on birds.

Walking through the huge aviary and trying to spot all the birds on the list was so much fun. The environment is so natural and you forget that you're in a huge aviary as the birds all fly around. Occasionally you'd be looking at one bird and another one would fly right by startling you..it was awesome!
