Such a lovely experience! The birds are incredible. The place is well kept and awesome. Always feel bad for animals being enclosed in a cage, but most of these birds look happy and not too worried. Also the enclosures are well equipped!
Feeling pride that they're taking a really good cares of all those preys. A guide was aware of my deaf and had a good approached and make sure that I'm followed her, her lipreading and everything. Thank you for made my day. Great place and good educated.
What a wonderful outing with the children. We were able to attend the bird show, which was a great educational experience. Birds look well cared for, clean facilities and a big variety birds We had a bite to eat at their coffee shop. Very basic, but great value for money and very tasty. Jungle gym area for the kids.
Quite a variety of eagles, vultures and owls. Was quite a nice experience to see the live show. The show takes place at 10.30am on Wednesday till Sunday. It's worth while to visit this place. Very nice for kids and the place itself it's very beautiful.
A beautiful place to take kids. Impressive array of bird species that are well looked after. Doesn't have a commercial feel which is great!
