Visit the bird's sanctuary

Blue cheeked bee eater

A guided visit in the Bird Sanctuary is a great way to experience and appreciate the incredible journey the birds undertake. We will show you birds that are caught for monitoring, tell you about their heroic journey and fantastic abilities, and then release them back into the wild. Each bird species is unique and has a different story to tell, and being able to see them so close up always promises to be an exciting and moving experience. After this encounter we depart to see the different habitats and the larger species in the sanctuary.
