We created our Owl Encounter because people are always telling us just how much they love owls. This experience allows you to not only meet and hold 3 different species of owl, you will also get to have them fly to you over and over again as you walk through beautiful surrounding at The National Botanic Garden of Wales.
Your Falconry Experience
Over 90 minutes of flying, you will fly a small, medium and large owl so that you can get to feel the difference in weight and see their different styles of flight and hear the different noises that they make. Even our really big owls are super friendly so that they can be flown by the smallest of people.
This is our most popular experience for families with younger children. Flying owls at a very young age is a great way to give children a love of birds of prey for the rest of their lives, you’ll be surprised as to how much they remember about their favourite bird.
After all the excitement of getting up close with the owls, there are drinks for you to enjoy in café. We also take 100’s of photos of you on your experience, which are included in the price, so that when you get home you can all enjoy the memories over and over again.
