The Free-Flight Walk-In Aviary
The park is divided into four zones: The Free-Flight Walk-In Aviary, Elusive Birds, Hornbill Park and World of Parrots. Via a marked footpath, you pass all four zones. You walk a large circle where the entrance is also the exit. Zone 1 and 2 are connected via The Free-Flight Walk-In Aviary. This is indicated as the largest outdoor aviary in the world. It is nice to see that the birds here live in nature and are not locked in a cage.
A few times a day there are feeding moments for the birds. We missed this every time, no idea how. Every time we arrived at the birds in question, they were already enjoying the papayas. I’m guessing the papayas were on sale and they’ve been having this for a while. You couldn’t miss the orange poop.
In several places, signs are telling you to watch out for peacocks. They look nice, but be careful not to get too close. Of course, people get way too close and even touch the animals. We weren’t such heroes and stayed safe watching from a distance. Most animals don’t bother people and just do their own thing. A large net hangs over the park, so the birds can’t escape and no other animals can get into the park. At a certain spot that didn’t quite go according to plan, because several monkeys came crawling through the hole and hung in the trees.
