Malta Falconry Centre is the first Bird of Prey centre in Malta that was developed with the aims : To re-introduce the ancient art of falconry in Malta To make educational and entertaining natural free flying displays with our well trained birds of prey To breed our captive birds on view to the public To reintroduce native species of birds of prey to Malta Come and enjoy a day at our falconry centre, watch our falconers fly several different species of well trained birds of prey and see these majestic birds in free flight (depending on weather conditions). The whole visit enables the visitors to be ia very close range with these majestic creatures. The facility has ample parking along with the amenities that one would expect in a modern tourist attraction. Have a look at our gallery section to see some of the different birds you will meet at our centre. One can also buy a memento of the visit from the gift shop.

I was able to learn so many things about birds, specially about falcons and owls. We were allowed to hold and pet an owl. What I like the most is that the owners are really patient in explaining and you can really see the love they have for raising the birds. Definitely one of the highlights of Malta

We visited the falconry on a chilly windy day . The lovely receptionist politely explained that there would be no falconry display due to the weather before allowing us ti but tickets so we knew what to expect . She explained that the high wind is dangerous for the birds and how one of there birds died in high winds... More

We visited the centre based on past reviews , however when we arrived we were told the birds could not fly due to high winds. When we entered we found all the birds caged or tethered to a short line. I guess it's similar to a zoo and perhaps we shouldn't have visited because we wouldn't like to see any... More

Although this is a little outside the main tourist trail, it's completely worth the trip there and back. Large numbers of birds of prey kept in good conditions and clearly loved by the owner. A family run venture, well worth the tiny €8 entry fee. Go at 10am or 2pm for flying demonstrations - you can see them up close... More

I will echo all the great reviews on here by saying we loved it. Only 8 euros. If you go on a quiet day Doreen will give you a personal service and let you hold the owls.. The only issue is directions. The owner should get more signs near the main road at the bottom. She also needs to advise... More
