African Sunset Safari

10 and 24 July, 8 and 28 August, 6-8:30pm (display starts 7:30pm)

Let us take you on safari and show you our team of African birds at their best as they fly across the skyline at sunset. Your safari guide will transport you to the Savannah for the evening, where our Verreaux’s Eagle-Owl will skim close overhead, our falcon will stoop from on high and our Secretary Bird will show its deadly strike. We’ll recreate a spectacle of African birds of prey, with vultures scavenging, the African Fish-Eagle fishing and our kites showing their aerial antics and we’ll tell tales of native wildlife in Africa with a combination of birds flying, theatre, music and special effects.

This wonderful summer’s evening event will begin with an opportunity to independently explore our grounds and see our birds in their homes before the display starts. Feathers Restaurant will be open to serve a range of delicious meals before the display or you might choose to bring a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful grounds at the Trust. This will be followed by a very different, yet magical flying display where you will witness the skill of our African birds at dusk.
