welcome to birds of eden - a true free flight bird sanctuary

BIRDS OF EDEN, IS THE GARDEN ROUTE’S VERY OWN WORLD CLASS FREE FLIGHT BIRD SANCTUARY.

 

Virtual Tour

 

Birds of Eden's unique two hectare dome (the World’s largest) spans over 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.

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.

Birds of Eden opened its doors to the public in December 2005. Currently over 3,500 birds live at the sanctuary.

For further information, directions etc. please contact Lara (marketing) or Lee (curator / manager).
