History

The World of Birds is set in the beachside town of Hout Bay at the foot of Table Mountain. The wooded valley was named by the Dutch, and translates to ‘wood bay’. Set amongst the trees, World of Birds Wildlife has over 3,000 birds of 400 different species stretched over four hectares of land. There are more than 100 walk-through aviaries, and birdlife including falcons, eagles, owls, flamingos and buzzards. There are also mammals at the park, with baboons, meerkats and porcupines, as well as a few small reptiles on show.

World of Birds Wildlife Sanctuary & Monkey Park

Advice for visitors

Don’t miss a walk through the Magic Forest, a fun trail that offers magical delights alongside bird sightings. When you encounter a parrot, say hello and wait for a response – some of them used to be pets and know a few phrases! Another great feature is the Monkey Jungle, a short walk through a ‘jungle’ where little monkeys may sit on your shoulder. A highlight is feeding time for the birds of prey, which happens at 16:15.

Did you know

The World of Birds is much more than a tourist attraction. It also functions as a breeding centre and orphanage, hospital, wellness sanctuary and conservation centre for threatened species.
