In our latest travel video we venture off to visit the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park Aviary (Taman Burung in Malay) not far from our guesthouse in Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. With over 3000 birds (200 species) KL Bird park is the largest walk-in free-flight aviary in the world.
It took us 45 minutes on foot to arrive and given the heat and humidity we were exhausted. After re-hydrating and resting we finally entered into KL Bird Park where we were immediately greeted by lovely peacocks displaying their brightly colored feathers. We noticed plenty of different bird species including eagles, owls, peacocks, flamingos, parrots and many more. Many of the birds were feeding on papaya slices arranged for them on branches.
Audrey paid a bit of money to have her picture taken with some birds and then a few minutes later Samuel made many new friends by feeding birds on his arm, hands, shoulder and head. We spent more time walking around the premises before we finally called it a day.
Overall, we had a great time and would come back again even though it’s not the cheapest activity.
I’m going to start off by saying that I was tricked into coming here. I was told it was going to be a short – oh, it is a ten minute walk from Chinatown as we’re right around the corner – and we’ve been walking for forty-five minutes in circles and uphill. I am covered in sweat and a bird just flew by me.
We’re at KL Bird Park – the largest walk in aviary – in the world. That means the birds can fly from freely around the park.
This aviary is home to over three thousand birds in more than two hundred species. So far we have seen love birds, flamingos, peacocks and birds that we don’t even know what they are.
This over here is the feeding area. As you can see the birds get a really nice diet of papayas and bananas.
This feels like Jurassic Park with the birds instead of dinosaurs. I’m going to choose two birds and then pose with them. This is the selection you’ve got.
Are you having fun?
We can feed Lorries for like two Ringgit, which is about seventy cents, so why not.
Sam, tell us about your new friends here. I’ve got four little friends and we’re having a feeding party right now.
Overall, this was a really fun experience although it is not the cheapest thing to do in KL. It is something we both highly recommend. Wear bug spray! Yes.
