I purchased a Bird of Prey experience for my husband and he was absolutely blown away at what a great day he had. He handled and flew a variety of birds. I have to say it was excellent value for money and would thoroughly recommend. I was able to take lots of photos. We watch the displays which were absolutely amazing. Cannot recommend this enough.

This has to be one of the best days out I have had in a long time. 100% better than I imagined it would be. Beautiful birds - eagles, hawks, falcons, vultures & owls. The flying displays were truly wonderful - to have these birds flying around your head is amazing. The staff are wonderful and clearly love what they do, they are also very knowledgable about all aspects of the birds. The setting has been lovingly created to suit the types of birds they have and is very well maintained.The cafe is very good, or you can take your own picnic lunch if you want, there is plenty of outdoor seating. It's a great day out for all ages.

I have been twice now to this trust and each time I have been left in awe. Birds in excellent conditions and fantastic displays with the birds flying around and over you. Brilliant place for everyone especially families. Will suit Raptor fanatics like me. Enjoy hands on experience with some of the birds.Plan for a long day as displays go on late into the day.

I particularly loved the Wings of Africa display, really moving with the addition of music at times. The birds were just incredible and seemed really happy and looked after. The staff were really enthusiastic and engaging too, with a great rapport with their birds. A great day out and also very informative and educational.
It is also a must for wildlife photographers

Today we went to see the birds again. I have visited the Conservancy quite a few times, and experienced a day working with some of the residents last year. All the flying displays were wonderful as always, with new elements and familiar faces. It was fantastically hot, which led to much enthusiasm from the African species as well as some comical collapsed resting postures from others! You really need a whole day there, as each display features different species: vultures, owls and fish eagles all star in turn.
The staff are warm and friendly, and adept at parking some of the birds where you can see them close up, and take pictures. There's a large restaurant, lots of space for parking, and clean toilets. Go. Go now.
