BirdPark Malta - Malta
A true little oasis. Adults and children love this place. While roaming around freely is just as entertaining, joining a tour is great for some background information on each species... birds and animals alike.
Directions to BirdPark Malta
The slogan we would probably choose to give BirdPark Malta is... 'Not just birds!'. While this beautiful wetland habitat is a haven for a large variety of bird species, both resident to the park and migratory, BirdPark Malta is also home to other lovely animals, such as kangaroos, wallabies, antelopes, meercats, deer, genets, marmosets, snakes and other reptiles.
The beauty of BirdPark Malta can be attributed to the fact that it did not start off with the intention of being a commercial enterprise. It is actually a labour of love by Kevin, the owner, who has been slowly nurturing his passion and setting up this wonderful bird refuge for the past ten years. When the park did finally open its doors to the general public in late 2011, both locals and foreigners could appreciate the genuine work and passion that has gone into the place. The park provides a wonderful protected wetland habitat in Malta, an island that is very limited in providing natural opportunities for avifauna to integrate and colonise.
A visit to the BirdPark Malta is educational and fun for kids and adults alike. There are a couple hundred of bird species to admire! This includes favourites such as flamingos, pelicans, swans, storks, owls, cranes and parrots. And it is not only about admiring from a distance... feeding takes place throughout the day and the friendly keepers are always happily available to share the knowledge and love that they have for these wonderful creatures. They even encourage human interaction through handling sessions with the more friendly macaws, owls, reptiles and other animals.
Visitors to the bird park can join a guided tour on weekends or wander freely around the grounds. The onsite Lizzy's Cafe is an ideal place for a quick bite before or after the visit. BirdPark Malta is also available for pre-booked group visits and is an ideal venue for private and corporate events. Anyone interested in giving a helping hand to the park can do so through voluntary work as well as adopting an animal... get in touch with the friendly team for more info.
The park is an ideal excursions for the many tourists staying in the St. Paul's Bay, Bugibba and Qawra region. It is either a few minutes drive or even a possible little hike to discover the place.
