“Always a great show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

I've been to the Bird of Prey show twice in the last 2 years and it never disappoints. Such a passionate team of people and incredible birds. A stunning setting in the Drakensberg mtns. You also get a chance to hold a falcon at the end of the show. There is also a small kiosk there for drinks and snacks, plus toilets too (important info for those with kids!).

“Raptor Show: A Must see For the Whole Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

Choose a clear warm day as these are best for raptors to fly high on thermals. And get there at least an hour early to book a seat or end up sitting on the lawn. The owners are excellent presenters and very committed to rescuing and releasing all the raptors they can. Every time we have been there it was varied shows as new birds are constantly rescued and trained to hunt for themselves. Peregrine falcon, black eagles, eagle owls etc. show is about an hour and excellent value at R50 a pop and for a great cause. You will not be disappointed highly educational for kids to learn appreciation for birds too
