A paradise for birds

The World of Birds is a private institution focusing on “bringing wildlife to the city and bringing people and animals closer together, with a newfound respect for and understanding of nature.” The Wild Bird Trust supports this great initiative.
About food, World of Birds has a little cafe that serves light meals and drinks. Not to mention, you may bring a picnic basket for a cute picnic at the Flamingo Terrace. Have little ones? No worries, the sanctuary offers pushcarts for hire at an affordable of R20. One can also find an exciting children’s playground on the premises. This allows the little ones to run wild, whilst you relax and capture this memory forever.
