Reviewed 11 February 2014

Incredible display of large birds of prey. The entire 'unrehearsed' show is slick and informative. As it is a popular show, take seating or a cushion in the event the chairs provided have already been taken. Also take along a hat and sunscreen as no shade provided. Shows only at certain times.

Incredible display of soaring, heart-stopping beauty. The raptors, trained by the owners to demonstrate their natural domination of the skies is breathtaking to watch. A truly awe inspiring experience

Some birds are caged, others are perched in the open, but the demonstration that Greg and Allison put on is fantastic, educational and fun! One of the birds wasn't cooperating on cue and Greg's sense of humor added another layer to the experience. The bird eventually did - but the bird's willfulness just made you appreciate the training these birds have undergone and the relationship between them and their handlers. The birds fly freely over the valley and swoop down into the audience with dogs chasing after them. Afterwards, guests are allowed to hold one of the birds and Greg and Allison are around to answer questions. It helps, but is not necessary, to bring binoculars, hats and sunscreen. Also, I imagine it would be easier to see on a cloudless day. The kids can sit on the ground upfront and no seat is a bad one.

A fantastic flying display of birds or prey sitting on the lawn looking out onto the spectacular valley.
It is informative, interesting and kept us entertained for the entire show.What a great show for a small entrance fee. A must do in the berg!

These guys offer a spectacular display of a range of birds of prey from yellow billed kites to eagles , hawks and even owls but for us the really hilarious moment was the way the resident dog chased after the black eagle as it swooped for bait. Commentary from Greg and Alison was most informative and entertaining and all set against the magnificent view down Cathkin Valley. There is a small coffee/refreshment facility and if it's a hot day you must take a hat and sun block as the display is held in an open area. Falcon Ridge is really well worth a visit if you are in the Central Berg area.
