A group of us visited on a very cloudy day that turned into a torrential downpour and unfortunately our tour had to be cut short after only experiencing 3 of the raptors on our gloved hands. But up until then, it was quite special.

We love birds, so what a treat to visit this center and attend one of the educational flight displays! We even got to put on a leather glove to feed one of the owls (which oddly came and sat on my head, which is apparently very unusual) : - )

What we loved most about this was to witness the absolute dedication and passion with which this family runs their business - quite inspirational.

In our opinion, something you MUST DO when visiting the Knysna/Plett area.

What a pleasant surprise! I was dragged kicking and screaming by my wife who insisted on going and I finished up having one of the best educational and entertaining hours ever. The birds are amazing, but look out for the bad tempered vulture he/she is as mean as ugly but loads of fun.

We all really enjoyed the whole experience at Radical Raptors. It's obvious that the presenter was really passionate about the birds and their rehabilitation. Excellent interactive show. Everybody is given a glove and Barney will fly and sit on your hand. On leaving, my son wanted to adopt one of the birds. Would definitely recommend it.
