KL Bird Park - Places to Visit in
Established in 1991, the Bird Park is "The World's Largest Covered Bird Park" or "The World's largest Free Flight Aviary" and houses more than 3,000 birds and 200 species from all over the world.
Birds and nature lovers can have a wonderful day watching colourful sights and melodic sound of birds perching and winging about freely while enjoying the natural and beautifully landscaped surroundings. You'll come across miniature gardens, pools and water cascades, bridges, flowering plants ...and bird feeding stations. One of the KL Bird Park's extraordinary feature is all birds let free in the aviary which resemble the natural habit. With this type of free flight concept. birds are able to breed naturally in this unique concept bird park.
The park offers you a great opportunity to see a hornbill in the first days of your stay in Kuala Lumpur. It's a lovely to see the hornbills flying so free from tree to tree. The hornbills are really photogenic. They are not so frightened and will (mostly) wait till you have taken a picture. This is the highlight of the park.
Divided into zones you'll find, a Flamingo pond, Pelicans, Hornbill Park, World of Parrots, a Waterfall Aviary, Amphitheatre, Children's playground and Seminar Room.
Birds here include Flamingos, Hornbills, Water hens, Parrots, Cockatoos, Storks, Pheasants, Mynahs Pigeons, Macaws, and Ducks. They are mostly from Malaysia with the others from Australia, Africa, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Indonesia, Tanzania, China, Holland, South America and other countries in South East Asia.
There's a refreshment kiosk, where you can buy an ice-cream, a drink or food for the goldfish in the pond. Near the Hornbills are the Hornbill Souvenirs Shop and the Hornbill Restaurant & Café. It's located on the top of a hill and you have spectacular view. From the terrace you can see the hornbills flying.
