Radical Raptors is a wonderful bird of prey rehabilitation and awareness centre,
just near Plettenberg Bay along South Africa’s famous Garden Route.

They have raptor flying displays at 11:00, 13:00, and 15:00 where you can experience an interactive and exciting demonstration of the beauty and power of birds of prey.

Before and after the show you can look at a number of birds
in the process of being rehabilitated.
