It's a quick loop through the trees for 70 odd rand per person for international tourists. Save your money.

Quite a drive beyond Plettenburg - but once there do the Monkeyland as well. Initially on entry there appear to be very few birds but as the trip progresses the birds increase in numbers quite dramatically - a very enjoyable visit

I'm not really into birds but the whole experience was wonderful, it's set in beautiful grounds and the walk round is so interesting. There's also a lovely little café where we had a yummy afternoon tea

So many types of birds. You can get really close especially when they are at the feeding stations. Some are quite tame and not at all frightened to be close to you. My husband had one standing on each shoe trying to eat his shoelaces!
