Birds of Eden, The Crags

Birds of Eden, a spacious, 2 hectare (5.5 acre) domed aviary, shelters over 200 species of rescued and abandoned birds. Built in 2005, the dome covers a lush, indigenous forest setting, complete with a natural waterfall. Roaming the walkways, you can encounter thousands of exotic birds, but remember that the verdant scenery hides a variety of other animals as well--monkeys, bats, and antelopes among them. Plan a trip to Plettenberg Bay easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Unique experience. A wonderful way to spend 2 hours. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Very good coffee and snacks restaurant overlooking water.
  • An experience to see birds close up and yet quite free. Very good for young people as well. There are plenty of bench seats along the walks allowing you to just sit and watch them feeding or flying by. The cafe beside a pond has tea, coffee and light snacks.
  • AMAZING! What a fantastic Idea, could easily spend there all day! But we bought tickets to do monkey land and also jukani (all were great) Loved that its a huge net and all the birds can roam/fly around on their own accord. So many beautiful stunning birds, loved getting the guide and trying to see all the birds.
  • Loved this park with all the amazing birds. Much Thought and dedication has obviously gone into this park. Well done team, a day well spent. Loved every minute in the sanctuary.
  • Can easily spend all day here! Loved the tranquility and the adventure of trying to spot all the birds. A guided Tour would’ve been nice for those that aren’t expert Bird watchers/spotters who might have had couple of questions to ask, but the Identification guide at reception helped a lot (R20) The sanctuary is very nice!
