The Bird of Prey & Rehabilitation Centre offers insight into the plight of Southern Africa's raptor species.
A safari in South Africa outfits visitors with many opportunities to encounter much and more of the country’s spectacular wildlife. When touring the Mpumalanga province, a visit to the Bird of Prey and Rehabilitation Centre will enhance your holiday experience. The facility admits hundreds of injured birds every year and essentially exists to educate people on the plight of endangered raptor species.
Found just outside the cozy holiday resort town of Dullstroom, the Bird of Prey and Rehabilitation Centre invites visitors to observe flying demonstrations and partake in handling the raptors. Having an immense feathered colossus take flight from the perch of your arm can be a very thrilling experience. You will find it essential to have a camera on hand!
Many striking raptors call the center home, from the majestic African fish eagle to the moon-faced barn owl. However, most of these feathered predators are only guests being rehabilitated to return to the wild. The facility merits a visit as it offers nature lovers the unique opportunity to encounter up-close some of the most remarkable local raptor species.
