Birding Tours At Monkeyland-kzn

PLEASE NOTE THAT BIRDING TOURS ARE CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE.  We hope to be able to offer these again soon and will confirm here and on our social media pages when these are available.

Our stunning hidden forest, now home to over 100 rescued exotic primates, is also a fantastic place to see indigenous wildlife, including a wide range of birdlife.  Since we opened to the public in April this year, we have been monitoring the bird species that occur naturally in our forest and have been overwhelmed by the variety, including a number of fairly rare species, such as gorgeous bush shrike, grey waxbill, blue mantled crested flycatcher and narina trogon.

We are now offering birding tours of our forest with a qualified bird guide.  These tours are available on Tuesdays and Sundays and must be booked in advance.  Birding tours last approximately 4 hours.

During Winter (1 March - 31 August), birding tours depart Monkeyland-KZN reception at 7am.

During Spring, Summer and Autumn (1 September - 28/29 February), birding tours depart Monkeyland-KZN reception at 6am.

The four-hour birding tour at Monkeyland-KZN costs R500 per adult and R250 per child (under 12s).  The price includes a discount voucher for use in our restaurant and gift shop.
