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
The beach is beautiful and clean. There are lots of activities, i.e. boat excursions, etc. to take part in, as well as many restaurants. On the way to Knysna or to Nature's Valley, which are either side of Plett, we came across many more activities such as horse riding and the Knysna Elephant Park. There is such a variety of things to do to keep busy and the Robberg hikes are a big hit too. There are also farm stalls next to the main road in both directions. Such a worthwhile place to visit!
