Our falconer will brief you on a 5000 year history of the ancient art of falconry.
You will set off on a walk as your hawk follows you, watching your every move.
Your falconer will teach you how to recall the hawk from the tree tops to your gloved hand and send him back to the trees again.
During the walk, your falconer will work with you to ensure you get some amazing photo and video opportunities as you call the hawk several times to your gloved hand.
To finish up your falconry experience you will be introduced to one or possibly two of our owls.
As you fly the owl, your falconer will teach you about the species and their habitat.
The owls are super cute, very photogenic and they do love an owl selfie!
