“Excellent show good photographic opportunity”

Falcon Ridge Bird of Prey Centre
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Falcon ridge provide rehabilitation for birds of prey and a daily show at 10:30am (except Friday). It is easy to locate up the Champagne valley 2km beyond the Drakensberg Boys Choir and with a BIG sign on the roadside. The birds are flown in an excellent Falconry display. The larger birds require good thermal updrafts to fly high so hot mornings are generally better value. Falcon ridge also presents an excellent opportunity to get close to rarities like Verraux's Eagle and to photograph them doing what they do best, flying. The site looks down valley into the morning sun so positioning for photography is a little awkward but the birds fly very close by.
There is a coffee bar on site and numerous other birds in enclosures. Bring cash for payment as there are no card facilities.

I'm not into bird parks but I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 hours here. Shows start at 10h30 so make sure you on time and no shows on Mondays unless it's a public holiday. Very informative and you can relax and they serve coffee - Lavazza. Young and old will enjoy it

Try and choose a hot day for thermals but they provide educational entertainment and at the same time provide a haven for disabled birds and also release them back into the wild
