Hout Bay’s impressive World of Birds avian-focused animal sanctuary and its exotic garden theme has been a staple of the Cape Town tourist scene for years now.

The birds, the greenery, the animals, the sheer size, everything combines to make for a fantastic family outing option (for both locals and tourists alike), and is certainly a visit that we’ve all enjoyed in the past.

So of course, the girls and I paid them a visit.

And yes, as far as the girls were concerned, the interactive squirrel monkeys enclosure was by far the biggest hit of the day.
