ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

One Hour Falconry Hawk Walk in Cape Town

Enjoy a leisurely hour's walk through the Cape Fynbos bushveld with majestic hawks swooping overhead!

For millennia, resourceful humans have made birds of prey their formidable hunting companions. In the Far East, records of falconry date to well beyond 1000 BC, and the practice is recognised by UNESCO as a ‘living human heritage’. Today, hunting no longer takes precedence, but birds are still kept and displayed for the purposes of rehabilitation, conservation and education.

This unique experience, in Stellenbosch, promotes these key modern objectives, while offering a truly timeless natural encounter. After a brief introduction at the eco-tourism centre, you’ll embark on an hour’s guided walk through the region’s stunning native bushveld, accompanied by two majestic Harris Hawks. These charismatic birds have become increasingly popular among contemporary falconers, who favour their aerial prowess and social disposition. Throughout the gentle hike, your new feathered friends will follow the group freely – periodically swooping to and from your gloved arms!

The One Hour Falconry Hawk Walk, in Cape Town, is a great chance to interact with some remarkable birds of prey. An Experience Days voucher makes a memorable gift for the animal-lover in your family.
