The World's Largest Free-Flight Aviary

Located in the scenic Lake Gardens, the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is truly worth a visit. Covering an area of about eight landscaped hectares, the tropical gardens of the Bird Park are divided into a number of thematic sections, presenting the time-pressed traveller with an opportunity to witness and observe some remarkable bird species, albeit in a controlled environment.

Be prepared to allow plenty of time for your visit. There is a lot of territory to cover in Kuala Lumpur's legendary heat and humidity, and water is a must. 

One has the opportunity to hand-feed some of the 'residents' such as the famed hornbills, the macaws and parrots. However, the range includes many species of water-birds, melodic bulbuls, colourful lovebirds, statuesque flamingos and friendly, flightless birds.

Regardless of the birds, the landscaping is beautiful. Enormous tropical trees provide cover for many other splendid plant species set around and amongst waterfalls, ponds and running water. There is even an opportunity to cool down walking behind an artificial waterfall.

Very close to the Bird Park is the Kuala Lumpur Orchid Park. In the near future I will post some photos of this superb floral presentation.
