Umgeni River Bird Park

Umgeni River Bird Park

The Umgeni River Bird Park has had a dramatic history in recent years, closed down by its owners due to unprofitability, then rescued by the municipality after an uproar from the community. The park, tucked away near an industrial section of Durban North and the Umgeni River, houses over 400 species of birds, all displayed along shady winding paths. The park's free-flight bird show, which runs daily at 11am and 2pm, has been entertaining families and school groups for over a decade, featuring vultures, owls, cranes, and other impressive fowl. There is also an undercover cafe that offers sodas, sandwiches and chipsEntrance is only 30 rand for adults. The park is accessible by bus, but it doesn't run very often.
