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.
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.
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.
