Reviewed 8 September 2013

Staying at Champagne Sports and was told by several people that this show was a must. A really outstanding performance with lots of educational knowledge on the various types of birds.Highly recommended. The show lasts about an hour.

“Definitely go”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The show at Falcon Ridge was one of my favourite experiences in the Drakensbergs. Stunning backdrop, fantastic raptors and entertaining & enthusiastic staff. The best falconry display I have ever seen, with peregrine falcons swooping overhead at 200km/h.
A very popular attraction, so make sure you get there early to get front row seats. There is a small snack bar on site. Make sure you take the opportunity to don the falconry gloves and take an eagle on your wrist!

“Best bird show ever !”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

You really need to see this these folks have been working with birds of prey for the last 14 years and it shows. The show takes place on a stunning backdrop of mountains and valley's and it allows the birds to present themselves in their natural habitat. The hosts: greg and allison are good presenters, they mix humour with educational facts. Be prepared for a close encounter with theae birds of prey and as a bonus see one of their dogs race an eagle for a piece of chicken. (No joke) Also take note of the white fish eagle it's still in learning mode and things can get a bit tricky (but always under control). But it makea for a good thrill. My kids loves this show and we learned a lot - you really need to go see this.

Wow, this was awesome seeing these raptors up close and personal. We enjoyed the birds in flight and learnt so much. A must see in the area.
