MEET SOME OF OUR FAMILY
Eagle Encounters is not a zoo; our birds don't live in cages. Take a stroll through our ‘weathering area’ where you can openly view the largest, smallest, strongest, fastest and the cheekiest.
MEET OUR OWLS
Our experienced handlers await you in the Touching Gallery and Owl nursery to facilitate personal encounters. Cuddle Fagen, our Barn Owl, and have a word with the Wood Owls. Our Spotted Eagle Owls love meeting new people (beware, you might end up with one or two - or five - perched on your head!)
UP CLOSE WITH MAJESTIC EAGLES
If you are daring enough, you can experience the great power of the large Black Eagle. Or meet Wally the Wahlberg's Eagle, our beautiful ambassador for his species.
LEARN ALL ABOUT VULTURES
We work closely with organisations like Cape Nature when it comes to caring for vultures and releasing them back into the wild. Come and meet our crew of (sometimes rather ungainly) vultures.
DROGON (A BEARDED DRAGON)
Drogon is a calm, friendly dragon and is a great hit with adults and kids alike, especially those who have never touched or held a Bearded Dragon before.

RED-TAILED BOA CONSTRICTOR
Our 2.5m long Red-tailed Boa Constrictor is definitely the "new squeeze" on our block!
The littlest people always love chatting to a piglet or chicken, so don't forget to say hello to these friendly faces when you come to visit.
A TRIBUTE TO SONIC THE PORCUPINE
We are heartbroken to share that Sonic, the adorable orphaned porcupine who grew up in the heart of the Chalmers household, passed on 26 July 2015. Sonic used to come out to interact with guests and then enjoy a good, healthy meal. Sonic loved a good scratch and was very friendly, despite those long quills! We will always miss you, Sonic.
