Wilderness falls within the 2600ha Wilderness National Park, which is host to over 230 different bird species. An absolute must-visit, particularly if you are traveling with children, is the World of Birds – with over 3000 birds and 400 species, this is one of the largest in the world. It is located just beyond Plett, about 90 minutes drive east of the lodge. Opposite is www.monkeyland.co.za, the world’s first free-roaming multi-species primate sanctuary, and well worth including as part of your World of Birds experience. Stop for lunch en route (we will make recommendations depending on what you are in the mood for) and make this a full day experience.
