Designed for families and small groups, this experience session is suitable for up to 8 people. Exclusive to your group, it is perfect for parties, family gatherings, team events and other celebrations. Available all year around, book an hour with us for an unforgettable session with a variety of birds of prey. After a short introduction, you will be taken onto our flying arena where your group will handle and fly at least five different birds of prey, and although we never guarantee exactly which birds will be flown these will be from a selection of kestrels, owls and hawks.
You can book up to 8 people on to the session. Any other person wishing to present to watch the experience will jut pay normal admission price and will be able to observe from just outside the flying arena.
This experience is recommended for age 7+, but if you wish to include younger children this is at your discretion. However, please note that some of our birds will not be suitable for flying to younger/smaller children and we reserve the right to determine whether or not it is safe for a child to participate in the experience.
