Situated on 60 hectares of scenic valley bushveld, within easy access of both Durban and Pietermaritzburg, the African Bird of Prey Sanctuary is safe-haven to the widest selection of indigenous raptors in southern Africa. We invite you to visit our tranquil bird park and experience South Africa’s magnificent aerial predators firsthand.

 

Raptor Rescue

 

Raptor Rescue is a specialist rehabilitation unit treating orphaned, sick and injured birds of prey. From rescue to release the facilities are designed for the specific needs of aerial predators. Due to the threatened status of many raptor species, the successful treatment of conflict casualties can have a positive impact on wild populations.

Consulting veterinarian, Dr Oliver Tatham and Ben Hoffman are now leaders in the field of African raptor veterinary and rehabilitation practice. Please use the Raptor Rescue Hotline for assistance or follow the link  below for more information.
