We were lucky enough to be invited to Eagle heights. Eagle heights is based in Enysford in Kent, which is the ideal location to see the birds fly. At Eagle heights there are seven different types of eagles, three vultures, five hawks and two falcons. There are also owls and a caracara, along with the usual chicken, ducks, raven and few other birds.
There are also mammals, a few farm animals and sled dogs. I can’t forget that they have a small selection of reptiles too!
Eagle heights is the perfect size for families, its not too big and not too small, there is even a play area for over fives and a separate play area for under fives. There are plenty of picnic tables so you can have a picnic or a reasonably priced tea room. There are signs about warning that food shouldn’t be eaten during the meetings of the animals which are at set times during the day. The centre is buggy and wheelchair friendly. Viewing the animals is also suitable for everyone.
The shop, tea room, toilets were very clean and tidy.
We were lucky enough to meet the husky’s. These are beautiful dogs and they look so happy and well cared for. There are experiences to have a personal meet with the husky’s along with husky rides where you are pulled along by a sledge and of course camping out with the husky’s. I will certainly be doing this once Bear and Bell are older as it sounds amazing, marshmallows around the fire, meeting the dogs and camping out. I just need to get over my fear of actually camping first!
There is also a Owl experience which is available, I am very tempted to book this for myself whilst the children are at school. Owls are my favourite birds.
Prices for the experiences start from £80.
If you fall in love with one of the animals, you can also adopt them, obviously they stay living at the centre.
Eagle heights is working on wildlife conservation in the UK, whilst assisting on a conservation project in West Africa. If you fancy popping down to see the animals, and learn more about how they are helping Wildlife conservation both here in the UK and West Africa, prices for children are currently £4.95 for over 2’s, and adults are currently £8.95, with a slight discount for over 65’s, students, disabled and carers.
Oh and did I mention the Crystal place eagel lives here?
