Accommodation near Birds of Eden

If you happen to find yourself on the Garden Route anytime soon, you will be excited to learn about the diverse array of attractions there are to choose from. From pretty Knysna with its waterfront restaurant, to Plettenberg Bay with its lengthy beach, and the myriad wildlife sanctuaries in between there is never a dull moment.

Birds of Eden is an animal sanctuary managed by the same group who run Monkeyland and the Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary. It is a member of the South African Sanctuary Alliance and Fair Trade Tourism, ensuring that everything they do is fair for their employees and environmentally responsible.

Birds of Eden, which is roughly 16 kilometres from Plettenberg Bay, is the biggest free flight aviary in the world, boasting a 2 hectare dome of which 70% consists of indigenous forest. It is however large enough to provide a number of niche habitats for the 3500 bird species found there. This number has been growing since the sanctuary opened in 2005, and boasts an approximate 50/50 split between exotic bird species and indigenous African species. Some of the species found there include parakeets, channel billed toucans, terrestrial bulbuls and olive thrush.

The birds which come to the sanctuary usually have a sorry story to tell, with histories in confined spaces. Many have been confiscated from zoos and dealers while some are turned in by their owners who grow tired of their pets.

An experience at Birds of Eden will not be forgotten in a hurry and is intriguing and fun for all ages. Generally visitors take themselves on a self-guided tour, following up to 2 kilometres of boardwalks, from which you can view all sorts of birds including water birds like ducks and flamingos.

Plettenberg Bay Reviews

Plettenberg Bay
Great little town with plenty of options in terms of dining and entertainment. Most restaurants were ok but one served me off calamari which was the weirdest thing to me with Plett being a coastal town. Street kids are a bit of a nuisance when they see your car registration isn't from Plett itself. Service is generally ok but I had an instance where a waitress was rude by making snide comments about me to a colleague and she assumed I didn't speak or understand afrikaans so went on to make the comments in front of me. I left it at that and thought that oneday someone would give her a go.
