The largest bird park in Africa, Hout Bay’s World of Birds fits neatly into a valley that provides a perfect sanctuary. More than 3 000 birds 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. Entrance costs R65 for adults, R39 for children, and R50 for pensioners and students (with card).
