THE GARDEN ROUTE’S VERY OWN WORLD CLASS FREE FLIGHT BIRD SANCTUARY.
Birds of Eden, like its neighbor Monkeyland, is a well-known sanctuary for primates. However, Birds of Eden offers a canopy walk of its own, which is shorter than the 128m bridge at Monkeyland but still hangs high above the clouds. What makes Birds of Eden unique is its two-hectare dome, the largest in the world, which stretches over a gorge of indigenous forest. The sanctuary currently houses over 3,500 birds from 220 different species, with a focus on African birds. While visits to Birds of Eden are generally self-guided, guided walks can be arranged upon request.
