Pre-booking recommended

Pre-booking your visit is advised (for members and non-members) if you would like to guarantee your visit for a chosen date.  Pre-booking is not available for discounted tickets (including Tesco).  It is possible to visit without pre-booking and pay at reception on arrival, subject to spaces being available. If we are fully booked, we will not be able to let you come in.  Based on customer feedback, we have chosen to keep a capacity limit in place to provide a little extra space for all.Pre-book your tickets now (tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable).

The Secretary Bird’s name could originate from two theories. The first is that it looks are like the old-fashioned secretaries who carried quill pens behind their ears. Alternatively, it could come from the Arabic ‘saqr-et-tair’. Saqr means ‘hunter’ or ‘hawk’ and tair means ‘flight’ or ‘bird’.
