This was a great experience and I'm so glad I went. It's not the usual kind of event I'd necessarily do on holiday, but was worth the trip. Not only are the birds wonderful in themselves, but the woman that runs the place is really inspiring: she clearly loves and understands the birds, and works incredibly hard. Enjoyable and fun...

Definitely worth a visit, especially recommend the morning by the time when people are still scarce. Windy weather, though no birds are flown, but this is a chance for some of the birds to pick up and take pictures with them. The Park itself is not large, the ticket prices are very-reasoned and very nice to visit with children

Unfortunately the weather was a bit windy and there was no exhibition, however we were escorted around by a young man (cant remember his name) who gave us a complete description of all the birds, including allowing us to hold some of the...

If you are looking to do something different during your stay in Malta, look no further. This place is a great way to learn about birds of prey and have a good time. Doreen and her family were very obliging and knowledgeable about all the birds. We were able to hold and pet some of them. A truly unforgettable experience.

Very enjoyable outing.The lady and young man that took us around were very pleasant and knowledgeable. There were more birds than we expected and the display was excellent. There was also a cafe with lovely coffee. The setting was very peaceful in spite of being near Luqa airport

This is an amazing place to learn about birds of prey (we did a 5 hour tour). The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Dareen and Warren are very passionate about their birds and take a good care of them. I highly recommend visiting this center either with small kids, or teenagers, or as a couple.

We visited in an afternoon when it was quiet, but sunny (26 degrees). Wow what an amazing place. There are plenty of birds of prey and a pool of terrapins. From vultures to small owls. It only takes about 30 minutes to go around on your own, however the owner came out and was talking to us all about how... More
