Birds of Eden Bird Sanctuary
I loved visiting the Birds of Eden even though I had a bit of a scary visit with one of the birds coming to sit on my shoulder without any warning! The world’s largest single span aviary, just a few kilometres east of Plettenberg Bay in the Garden Route, where birds are free to fly free provides an incredible experience for those who visit, and a wonderful way of life for over 2000 previously caged birds.
This famous train the Outeniqua Choo-tjoe runs daily from George to Knysna and back.
This steam train runs through amazing scenery!
We didn't chatch the train but saw it from one of the lakes close to Wilderness!
The heart of the Garden Route
"A great location for relaxing and exploring"
This town is a very good central location, providing you have a car. There are many hotel options, along with great restaurants and bars.
The views across the lagoon and from The Heads are stunning.
