Get up close and personal with exotic birds
Located about 20km south of Cape Town
in the picturesque town of Hout Bay, the World of Birds is a charming way to spend an afternoon. I love the fact that you can walk through the different outdoor aviaries and be in the same space as the birds. This proximity has resulted in several breaches of my personal space including: having my feet (gently) pecked by a hadeda ibis who took a liking to my blue keens, almost having a seagull snatch my program away and my personal favorite, this rhinoceros hornbill (above) attempted to follow me into the adjacent toucan cage.
