Wilderness falls within the 2600ha Wilderness National Park, which is host to over 230 different bird species. An absolute must-visit, particularly if you are traveling with children, is the World of Birds – with over 3000 birds and 400 species, this is one of the largest in the world. It is located just beyond Plett, about 90 minutes drive east. Opposite is Monkeyland, the world’s first free-roaming multi-species  primate sanctuary, and well worth making time for. This is a full day experience.
