The African Bird of Prey Sanctuary is dedicated to the conservation of indigenous raptors and is base to ongoing research, breeding and rehabilitation projects for birds of prey.
The majority of these projects run ‘behind the scenes’ to ensure that the integrity of the wild birds is not compromised and that a high release success rate is achieved. The sanctuary is, however, also home to a wide selection of captive-bred or ‘non-releasable rehabilitation’ birds. These raptors can be viewed in their ‘micro-environment’ enclosures by anyone who wishes to visit and learn about South Africa’s magnificent aerial predators.
Flying Display Times
Weekdays (except Mondays) at 10h30
Weekends and Public Holidays at 10h30 and 15h00
The flying demonstrations are 'open air' so bring a hat, sunscreen and a jacket. Vulture Feeding Sessions take place around noon on weekends. Please phone and confirm should this activity be your primary reason for visiting. The displays are also weather dependent so, if in doubt, please give us a call before you leave home to make sure.
