Scarlet ibises, Nicobar pigeons, pelicans, vultures, cranes, and owls converge at the Montecasino Bird Gardens, a conservation-meets-entertainment center in Fourways, Johannesburg.
Birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and plants cohabit these delightful bird gardens, which also boasts the world’s largest collection of South African Cycads. Strolling the grounds you’re like to find chameleons, sloths, rare red ruffed lemurs (exclusive to the island of Madagascar) and of course Oliver the pelican, who doubles as the featured talent in the park’s “Flight of Fantasy” bird show.
