The first nature park in the country, Birdpark Malta is a hidden gem for visitors. Open to the public for just five years and covering 5,000 square meters, it is home to more than 200 species of birds. A variety of other animals also populate the park, including kangaroos, wallabies, antelopes, deer, meercats, snakes and other reptiles. Visitors can watch daily feedings, participate in interactive sessions with owls, macaws, reptiles and other animals, or join a guided tour of the park to learn more about bird habitats, songs and calls, migration patterns and nests and eggs. And of course, the park’s helpful keepers are always on hand to answer questions. Consider combining a trip to Birdpark Malta with a visit to the National Aquarium of Malta for a full day wildlife experience.
Birdpark Malta is located next to Kennedy Grove in the Salina neighborhood of Malta. Visitors can either join a tour to the park or take a bus to the Salini stop, near the Salina Bay Hotel. If you visit independently, you can still join a guided tour offered at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
