Tropical Birdland | Day Out With The Kids

Tropical Birdland

Desford, Leicestershire, England

Attraction Information

  • Zoos and Wildlife Parks icon Zoos and Wildlife Parks

Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

See up to 250 free-flying birds from all over the world soaring right above your head and go exploring through 6.5 acres of English countryside at Tropical Birdland.

Get on some binoculars and spend your day spotting and identifying the many different species of tropical birds that call this unique attraction home. The variety of walk through aviaries are home to lots of these beautiful birds, many of which love a scrummy mealworm so if you’ve got some going spare then draw the birds in a bit closer!

See some feathered friends showing off their incredible colours in The Parrot Path. You can even get up close and interact with them, but watch out because some of the naughty birds love to steal jewellery! If you’re lucky, you may even experience a chick being born through the large window that peers into the chick room, where all the eggs are kept warm and safe until they’re ready to hatch.

Venture off road with the Woodland Walk, which takes you through the beautiful natural woodland where you will see all kinds of wildlife, or have some fun in the play area, a big hit with children and adults!

Have a squawking good time!
