ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Verreaux's Eagle Encounter in Stellenbosch, Cape Town

Get up close and personal with a beautiful Verreaux's Eagle during this experience in Stellenbosch!

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 great experience, in Stellenbosch, includes entry to a leading eco-tourism centre. Founded in 2001, the centre is home to a variety of charismatic creatures – including falcons, hawks, owls and reptiles. Throughout the day, visitors can enjoy several live raptor displays, during which experienced falconers will demonstrate each species’ individual talents and personalities. What’s more, you’ll also have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with the resident Verreaux’s Eagle, Leo. The Verreaux’s, or black, eagle is among the largest in Africa, and Leo’s fine plumage and noble bearing are sure to enchant lucky handlers!

The Verreaux's Eagle Encounter, in Stellenbosch, is a unique chance to make a new feathered friend. An Experience Days voucher would delight the animal-lover in your family.
