World of Birds, Cape Town
The World of Birds in Hout Bay is a bird and wildlife sanctuary with over 3000 birds in natural surroundings. Visitors are able to walk through the aviaries and experience close-up encounters with cranes and guineafowl, monkeys and meerkats, owls and eagles. The sanctuary also cares for injured birds and is a breeding centre for threatened species. Great for kids.
TIME NEEDED: 1-2-hours depending on your interest.
> TIP: Combine a trip to the World of Birds with a day or half-day trip to Hout Bay. Visit the harbour, feast on fish and chips (straight from the sea) and take a boat trip to the seal colony. Explore the quaint shops on the main street, and if visiting on a Sunday - take a look at the local craft market.
> Open daily from 9am - 5pm
