Close to Palazzin Hotel, one of the most attractive bird parks on the island.
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, meerkats, 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 BirdPark Malta is educational and fun for kids and adults alike. There are a couple of hundred 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 more friendly macaws, owls, reptiles and other animals. (myguidemalta.com)
