KL Bird Park ~ Places to Visit in Kuala Lumpur
KL Visitors Guide


Birds and nature lovers can have a wonderful day out of the city’s bustle watching the colourful sights and melodic sound of birds perching and winging about freely while chilling out in the park's natural and beautiful surroundings.

The Bird Park claims to be "The World's Largest Covered Bird Park" and "The World's largest Free Flight Aviary" with more than 3,000 birds and 200 species from all over the world.

Established in 1991, the park has miniature gardens, pools and water cascades, little bridges, flowering plants and other tropical fauna.

The KL Bird Park's extraordinary feature is all birds are let free in the aviary which resemble the natural habit. With this type of free flight concept, the birds are able to breed naturally in this unique concept bird park.
Known locally as the Taman Burung, about 200,000 people visit the park annually.

Distinguished visitors include Ex US President Clinton who had a brief but enjoyable visit in 2008 and Martha Stewart on May 2010.
The KL Bird Park is carved into four zones:
Zone 1 & 2 - A free-flight area where birds may interact and roam about as they wish.
Zone 3 - Designated as the hornbill park.
Zone 4 - Contains some caged birds, special breeding areas, and an amphitheatre where two daily shows take place.

Feeding times provide the best photo opportunities for the many species that stay hidden or high in the forest canopy during the day. The birds are not easily frightened and taking a picture should not pose a problem. However, please do not disturb or frighten the birds. These bird are wild birds and some have sharp bills and claws and can bite without warning.
