Went to the bird park when visiting Monte Casino for the weekend. We found the park to be very well maintained and stocked. The animals seemed in good health and the bird show was great.

It's not just birds - there are all sorts of animals. Birds, reptiles, small mammals etc etc. It was really a wonderful experience. It's a great way to get out of the Johannesburg City Buzz and enjoy nature.

There's car parking available as the Bird Park is located at casino complex. If you decide to Uber, you will be dropped off and picked up in designated spots at the entrance.
