The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a tropical paradise and home to 3,000 birds. It is set in the scenic Lake Gardens spread over 20.9 acres with tropical plants, trees and flowers. Although it is a large green space it is only a 10-minute drive from the Kuala Lumpur city center. The park is divided into 4 zones, zones 1 and 2 are a huge free-flying aviary, zone 3 is the Hornbill Park and zone 4 holds birds in cages and mini aviaries.
The park has one of the largest free flying walk-in aviaries in the world. Inside the enclosure you step into a tropical forest with lush green rainforest plants, babbling brooks and tall trees. Several species of birds live in harmony together inside the semi-natural environment and visitors get to walk among the plants and birds. One of the highlights is the crowned pigeon, the largest species of pigeon in the world. Among the birds in the aviary there are doves, egrets, storks and ibises.
In addition to the huge walk-in aviary there are several mini walk-in aviaries like the Love Aviary where there are lovebirds. Other popular sections in the park include Brahminy Land where you can see the Malaysian birds of prey the Brahminy kites. There is the Flamingo Pond with gorgeous flamingo birds, swans and pelicans and the Waterfall Aviary where you enter a mini aviary with lush trees and a 30 feet tall man-made waterfall.
he Bird Gallery and Education Center displays pet birds and several educational exhibits. In the nursery, kids can see how chicks and ducklings hatch and how they are artificially incubated and nurtured until they are ready to break through their shells.
Throughout the day, there are activities including a chance to get your photo taken with the birds at the Feathered Friends Photo Booth and the bird show where birds perform tricks in the amphitheatre. My daughter loved this, having birds on her head and arms!
You can see the birds getting fed in the different bird zones of the park. See the lory feeding, ostrich feeding, free flying birds feeding, hornbill feeding, eagle feeding and the milk stork feeding.
While in the park you can use the facilities which include toilets, resting huts and resting benches, a prayer room, gift shop and a children’s playground. There is a Visitors’ Information counter if you need any help finding your way around. There are several eating options in the park; you could eat at the Sandwich Bar or one of the kiosks throughout the park which serve snacks. There is also the Hornbill Restaurant and Café where you can get local and western-style cuisine. We loved the fresh juices and satay here! Beautiful view!
