About WildThingZ Complex

Situated next to the craft market at Meropa Entertainment Complex is WildThingZ. This enclosure, which forms part of the Wild World Outdoor area at Meropa Casino and Entertainment World, is the first of its kind in South Africa.

WildThingZ comprises the Bird and Reptile Parks as well as the Butterfly Park and Insectarium, and offers hours of entertainment for young and old, with numerous displays and information sessions. There are over 200 magnificent indigenous species of bird life all contained in an enormous beautifully landscaped enclosure. Viv Bristow, a wild life expert, animal trainer for Hollywood movies and a pioneer of wild life rehabilitation, together with Trevor Oertel, of the natural Birds of Prey Centre, have created a magnificent and unique Bird and Butterfly Park. The Butterfly Park is the first of its kind in South Africa and houses 30 different species of indigenous butterflies. The centre is unique because there is no other facility in the world that caters for indigenous species' only.

In stark contrast to the tranquility of the Butterfly and Bird Parks, the Bird of Prey Centre, has a rapturous fascination of its own. It is home to Africa's largest eagles and other amazing raptors, including the fastest bird in the world - the Amazing Peregrine Falcon.
