The World of Birds Wildlife Sanctuary and Monkey Park

Nestled in the backdrop of Hout Bay in a tropical garden you will find Africa’s largest Bird Park, The World of Birds Wildlife Sanctuary and Monkey Park. For the past 38 years the World of Birds has accepted up to 200 birds and animals every month, rehabilitating sick, injured or orphaned animals. The Park hosts over 3 000 birds (and small animals) of 400 different species are uniquely presented in more than 100 spacious landscaped walk through aviaries that provide permanent shelter to the hundreds of birds, animals and reptiles.

The Park is home to thirty-eight attractive and agile New World monkeys, these monkeys are very interactive and mischievous. They live in a large green walkthrough enclosure, which allows you to enjoy direct contact with the Monkeys. There are benches as well as a grass patch area where you can sit and interact with the Monkeys.  The Monkey Jungle is open from 11:30 - 13:00 and 14:00 - 15:30.

Wide pathways and lovely little bridges make the park wonderfully wheelchair friendly, opening and going through some of the enclosure doors can be a bit tricky but with some assistance you can get through quiet easily. The restrooms are wheelchair accessible.

The park has a quaint little coffee shop, The Robin’s Nest which offers drinks and snacks as well as light meals alternatively bring your own picnic basket and enjoy a picnic at the Flamingo Terrace right next to the Flamingos or one at one of the many little resting spots throughout the park.

While you are having a rest there is a small play area for the children. Children’s pushcarts are available for hire at R20 each.
