Birds of Eden

Along highway N2 between Port Elizabeth and Mossel Bay, The Garden Route, in South Africa's Western Cape, we found this aviary, the world's largest, multi species, free flight, aviary, the sign said.

We walked around for a few hours, took quite a few photos, of which I've posted some here, and very much enjoyed it.

We recommend Birds of Eden to anyone visiting South Africa. There are a lot more birds there than the few we've included here.

This swan bathed then climbed out of the pond and dryed off. A magnificant bird.
