Good time with my wife and son, who liked it very much. Wide range of birds to view, and the best part for me was the free birds in the last area, that you can feed, carry and play with.

Fun day with grandchildren to see the tropical birds at close quarters. Kids love it. Buy a pack of nuts at the ticket office and be careful of your fingers when feeding the birds. And watch the kids’ fingers too. The restaurant has basic food....More

Yes. You can buy bags of food at the start. Try to save some for the end though because that's where the birds are free flying and they sit on your arms and shoulders. I'd recommend you don't wear things with buttons and you... More
