Since 2004 the team have been offering award-winning bird of prey flying experiences, where it’s all about you flying the birds yourself.

Private Owl Flying Experience

*Pre-booking essential*

Currently all Owl Flying Experiences will take place at The British Bird of Prey Centre at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Carmarthenshire 


Adults £50 | Children £25* | Spectator £10

  • 100% private, so fly on your own or with family/friends
  • Fly 3 different species of owl
  • 90 minutes flying time
  • Includes entry into The National Botanic Garden of Wales and The British Bird of Prey Centre
  • Refreshments of tea, coffee or squash afterwards

On our private owl experiences you will get to fly three different species of owl through the beautiful Garden. The experience is completely private so you can spend the maximum time enjoying yourself with the owls and we can completely tailor the experience to your individual requirements. Just let us know when you book if there is any additional support you need while you're with us.  

You will take it in turns to fly the three different owls so that you can get to feel the difference in weight, see their different styles of flight and hear the different noises that they make. Even our really big owls are super friendly so that they can be flown by the smallest of people. During your experience there will be plenty of photo opportunities as you call the owls down to your gloved hand as many times as you like. 

This popular experience is well suited for anyone with a love of owls. Flying owls at a very young age is a great way to give children a love of birds of prey for the rest of their lives; you’ll be surprised as to how much they remember about their favourite bird!

*Children must be accompanied by a full paying adult. Under 5's are welcome to have a go free of charge with their group.
