Birds of Eden, is a two hectare free flight bird sanctuary, that is made from a dome enclosing a gorge of indigenous forest. The sanctuary has its own mysterious ruin, which incorporates a walk-behind waterfall. Another feature is its amphitheatre, which has the ability to seat over 200 visitors. There are more than 3,000 birds at Birds of Eden, comprising over 220 species.
The sanctuary is part of the same organisation as Monkeyland and is located right next door. You can see both sanctuaries in one day without leaving the area. If you do this, it is more economical to do the combo deal of R280 per adult, which gets you entry to both parks. Otherwise the cost is R175 per adult per park.
Birds of Eden boasts its own canopy walk that hangs above the forest floor. The decision to develop Birds of Eden stems from the need to create a safe environment in which to release a large collection of free-flight African birds, miniature monkeys and the sanctuary also enables bird owners to apply to release their pet birds into the sanctuary, after undergoing rehabilitation.
If you are in the area this is a highly recommended attraction if you like animals.
