Birds of Eden is the largest free-flight aviary in the world. The sanctuary encompasses 2.3ha of partly forested land, covered by a 3.2ha mesh and criss-crossed by a 1.2km walkway. Visitors are welcome to explore at their own pace, with the use of Birds of Eden’s specialised guidebook. The sanctuary is home to over 3,500 birds of around 200 species, including louries, parrots, turacos, parakeets, waterfowl, flamingos, starlings, robins and cranes. Also living at Birds of Eden are some of the miniature primates who are too small for its sister sanctuary Monkeyland: Cotton-top tamarins, golden-handed tamarins and bushbabies. Furthermore, giant fruit bats from South East Asia, tree squirrels and blou duiker can be admired in this stunning space. The sanctuary terrain includes a deep gorge with a waterfall and the highest point in the aviary is approximately 50m, covering all the treetops and allowing ample flying space for its winged inhabitants. Since most of the birds have spent their entire lives in captivity, this is their first chance to make adequate use of their wings and to experience natural avian behaviour. Birds of Eden has secured the future of all its birds and wildlife. The South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (PBO Number 200/060 667/08), is the sole custodian of all the Birds of Eden inhabitants. The sanctuary funds itself by means of responsible eco-tourism and we strive to achieve an effective balance between conservation and economic reality.
Birds of Eden is the only Fairtrade accredited bird sanctuary in South Africa.
Birds of Eden is situated 22km East of Plettenberg Bay off the N2.
