WORLD OF BIRDS

Africa’s largest bird park, with over 3 000 birds and small animals. More than 100 walks through landscaped aviaries allow you to get close to the birds.
Get there for the feeding times of the different species – penguins at 11.30am through to birds of prey at 4.15pm. And enjoy getting to know some vervet monkeys as you sit in their spacious cage while they play around you! This park takes in ill and injured birds and depends on donations to survive – a good reason to visit!
