Picture challenge “Africa of the Parc des Oiseaux” until September 2nd
The Birds in Flight show
Magic in flight
The highlight of your day at the park! Our Birds in Flight Show takes you from the stands to a mystical ballet of grace and colours…
These events are the fruit of the carers’ passionate work – training pelicans, cranes, African marabouts, Terrestrial hornbills, and parrots of various species, all shown in their legendary dimension: FLIGHT.
You will be delighted by the diversity of species that spread their wings to participate in this light aerial dance.
Trust and complicity
The show truly reflects the complicity and trust that the carers have developed with the birds since birth. Indeed, this show is composed entirely of birds born in the park. Each species’ needs and well-being are treated with respect. A majestic show accompanied by didactic commentary that reflects the park’s values and demonstrates our desire to educate the public and raise awareness of the fragility of birdlife.
