Things to do at Eagle Heights Wildlife Foundation review
When I was younger, I spent a lot of time at a local bird of prey centre in Eynsford called Eagle Heights Wildlife Foundation which opened in 1996 with around 30 birds and a collection of rescued reptiles under their roof. In fact, I believe I spent most of my weekends there with my family watching the outdoor flying displays, marvelling at the indoor aviaries, demonstrations and learning about their conservation campaigns.
Since 1996 Eagle Heights has rapidly expanded and now it has a large array of Birds of Prey, a big reptile house as well as a collection of mammals including Husky Dogs, Meerkats, Camel, Coati Mundi and Arctic Fox. Eagle Heights offers both indoor and outdoor aviaries, a large indoor lecture room, large flying arena, play area, shop and a small tearoom with flying displays held throughout the day making it a great day out, particularly for a family with children.
Eagle Heights also offers you the chance to take part in special experiences so you can get up and close with the birds and animals under their care. Experiences include: Husky Hikes, Meerkat Experiences, Owl Experiences, Hawking and Falconry experiences. I recommend the VIP Day experience which lets you get up close and personal with a wide range of their amazing birds and animals. They often open up after hours for especial experiences such as the Marvellous Mysteries Owls evening, they held earlier this year
I was lucky enough to have been treated to a night in one of Eagle Height’s amazing Geodomes for my birthday this year. It was great fun to stay overnight in these self-catering luxury camping domes, complete with double bed, mini fridge and TV. The best thing is the view over the Darent Valley which is just stunning.
If you are looking for a fun day out for all the family pop down to Eagle Heights and enjoy learning about planet Earth’s amazing wildlife and their conservation efforts to ensure these animals are around for generations to come.
