The World of Birds

The largest bird park in Africa, Hout Bay’s World of Birds fits neatly into a valley that provides a perfect sanctuary for a four-hectare series of aviaries. This exquisite setting is surrounded by a number of mountain ranges, such as the Twelve Apostles, Constantiaberg, Chapman’s Peak and Little Lion’s Head.

Walk-through aviaries
More than 3 000 birds and small animals belonging to 400 different species are housed in spacious, landscaped walk-through aviaries that afford visitors unrivalled face-to-face interaction with some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creations.

Monkey Jungle
The Monkey Jungle, with its cute squirrel monkeys, is always a hit with children and the young at heart, while photographers revel in the many photographic opportunities that abound. The World of Birds is a premier tourist attraction – visited by 100 000 people every year – that should be on your “top-five” list.

Cost and hours
Entrance costs R70 for adults, R40 for children (3-16), R55 for pensioners and students with student cards. For group/school bookings contact the booking office on +27 (0)21 790 2730 or email bookings@worldofbirds.org.za. World of Birds is open daily from 09h00-17h00.

Southern Suburbs

St James

Just a little further on from Cape Town’s well-known Muizenberg beach is St James. Home to a cluster of well-known and oft-photographed bathing boxes on the beach, St James is a picturesque area that offers beachgoers respite from the westerly wind.

Llandudno and Sandy Bay

Only 18km from the Cape Town city centre, an arc of fine white sand gives away the secluded location of one of Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches, Llandudno.

Macassar Dunes Project

The Macassar Dunes Project is located on the Cape Town coast adjacent to Macassar and Khayelitsha and is bounded by the Eerste River, Baden Powell Drive and False Bay.
