Sanctuary Visit

TICKETS : Adults R70, Kids R40

Flying shows daily at 10h30


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.



The African Raptor Trust (ART) is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the conservation and appreciation of indigenous birds of prey and the environment that sustains them. ART ‘s current conservation project is centered on creating awareness about the endangered Bearded Vulture; approximately 320 birds are thought to remain in the wild.

We've arrived in one piece at the highest pub in Africa where we are being hosted to stay overnight.

The snow is here but luckily for us the fall has been light and shouldn't affect our harvest climbs tomorrow as we head into the interior of Lesotho!

If all goes according to plan, lunchtime tomorrow will see us with two eggs safely in hand (or incubator to be more precise) making our way toward Maseru where we can officially check the egg into South Africa.

For all those who have fond memories of the Sani Pub, tonight was the last night before all the autographs & messages on the walls and roof will be removed due to ongoing upgrades.

Updates and more photos to follow soon!
