Umgeni River Bird Park

Inspire to Conserve

The Umgeni River Bird Park was designed and built by Dr Alan Abrey. It is situated in an old quarry site. The Umgeni River Bird Park was opened in April 1984 and is situated in 3.5 hectares of lush tropical landscaping and houses an ever-increasing collection of more than 800 birds from 200 species. 

Only 10km from the North Star – The Umgeni River Bird Park’s main feature is a free-flight show that has as its focus a conservation theme to inspire visitors, as birds glide past them in full and unrestricted flight.
