We filmed some fantastic spots in Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa, a few weeks ago!
We filmed them for Skybok.net – Online Video Profiles showcasing South Africa.
One of my best was the Africa Dawn Wildlife & Bird Sanctuary.
I loved the greenery and fresh, open space.
We absolutely loved doing their video profile for them because it’s such an unusual place.
The park is home to several animals from South Africa and beyond including Cheetah, Servals, Lynx, Squirrels, Marmosets, Squirrels, Monkeys, Blue and Common Duikers, Bushbok, Grysbok, Meerkats, Wallabies and a Crocodile.
They also have over 250 species of birds indigenous to South Africa in the largest Aviary in the Eastern Cape!
You can listen to the calls of birds such as the Knysna Loerie, the Laughing Dove and the vibrant Red Bishop. Other birds around the park include the majestic Black Eagle, Blue Cranes, Crowned Cranes, Hornbills, Emu, Lorikeets and Macaws.
We were very lucky and got to go inside the aviary to film!
I was amazed to learn that birds eat bananas.
Yip – the staff have a dish that they leave inside the aviary which the birds feed out of.
Chopped bananas, chopped mangos and chopped apples are the order of the day……………. oh yes, along with scrambled egg!
Can you believe it.
Visit there, volunteer there, host your function or event there – it really is a super venue.
Find their profile on our website in ‘Jeffreys Bay’ (change your city at the top right-hand corner) under ‘Points of Interest’.
