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.

“Bird Heaven”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We have been here many times and enjoy it each time. Love the different species of birds and just generally enjoy watching them behave at eating time.

Reviewed 26 March 2014

Never seen so many different bird species in my life. Good value for money, especially if you go for the package deal with Monkeyland

“A bird paradise”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

One of the worlds largest aviaries with many species within the canopy-well worth a 2 hour visit to be combined with Monkeyland.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Highly recommend this park. The birds and animals might be in a cage, but they are safe and very close to their natural habitat. The place is well kept and the animals are treated with respect and dignity. A trip to Monkeyland was also so worth it! Would have like to visit Jukani as well, sadly we did not have enough time.
