After I left Kirstenbosch, I decided that it was too early for wine tasting, which would have been the next stop. So I stayed on the bus until the World of Birds in Hout Bay. At that moment, it was raining hard, and I hoped for an enclosed bird park where it was dry. However, it was an open-air sanctuary. Luckily the rain stopped, and I could enjoy one of the the most abundant bird parks in Africa. Most bird aviaries are open, and you can walk through them among the birds. Where I am from, the birds you can walk with are canaries, parrots, and other relatively safe birds. Here, you can watch owls and vultures from up close, only the dangerous birds are closed off by a fence, but the rest can fly around you in their area.
The World of Birds Sanctuary also has an open monkey park; these squirrel monkeys have become used to humans. Before I entered the enclosure, I had to remove all food and drinks from my bag to prevent theft. They have taught themselves to open zippers and steal food from mindless visitors. The moment I entered, the monkeys followed me curiously, and as soon as I sat down, I was covered with them. As I tried to take a picture, their little hands slipped into my pockets to find any food or items, unfortunately for them, I had nothing, and they gave me a sad look which melted my heart.
Further on in the park, there are not only birds but alpacas and turtles as well, it is a mini zoo with, for my standards, more freedom and connection with the animals. Since you do not watch them behind bars. If you can fit this stop in your planning, I would recommend a visit.
