KL Bird Park (Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur)

One of the world’s largest covered bird parks and home to over 200 species of birds. The park spans 20.9 hectares and is split into 4 zones. Many of the birds, including colorful peacocks, are free to roam around within the zone, providing excitement from the moment you arrive. 

Zones 1 and 2 are free-flight, walk-in aviaries with peacocks, stalks, ibises and doves to name a few. Enclosed aviaries contain love birds, brahminy kites, owls, flamingos, and bulbuls. Zone 3 contains rare and beautiful hornbills which you can admire while enjoying a drink at the Hornbill Restaurant and café. While zone 4 is home to friendly parrots who love to be fed under staff supervision, as well as flightless birds, oriental birds, and the amphitheater where daily bird shows are held.
