We made our second visit to Eagle Encounters in February after we first visited in 2012. Seeing the birds of prey so close is fantastic. My husband and brother in law held the black eagle for R50, great experience. The Martial Eagle is frankly terrifying, her eyes follow you around. We ended up booking the Harris Hawk Walk for our last night in Cape Town. On this activity (R300 pp) they take you on a bush walk with a couple of harris hawks, the birds fly and hunt and land on your arm - and your head as we found out! This was a great activity and one of the highlights of our 5 week trip and I would definitely return every time we go back to Cape Town and highly recommend the Harris Hawk Walk. The owners and staff clearly are very passionate about their work and educating the public about the importance of birds of prey. After our visit we spent 3 weeks driving up to Namibia and really noticed the birds of prey along the way.
