Fodor's Review

Built over a natural valley in the indigenous forest, Birds of Eden is a giant free-flight aviary spanning five dome-enclosed acres. A stream, waterfalls, ponds, paths, benches, and rest areas make it a great place to spend the day. About 200 species of birds, some of which are quite tame, stay here, among them many African species.
