After your initial introduction to the different species of birds and education on how to care for, maintain and handle a bird of prey, you will be given a brief instruction on how to take a bird of prey on the glove, release and recall the bird, under the instruction of the falconer.
Then take a journey with a hawk on your gloved fist through the beautiful, indigenous woodlands of the Mount Falcon Estate, get an up close and interactive experience as the Hawks follow the group flying their way through the woods and returning on command, you become the falconer and get to practise and participate in a living human heritage art “The Traditional Sport of Kings” as the Harris Hawks get to showcase their unique attributes, hunting techniques and flying skills.
The first time your Hawk stoops down from a tree top over 100 feet high and glides majestically through the woods, weaving between branches and narrow gaps at speeds of up to 60 kph; then landing with all the weight of a feather onto your gloved fist. It is a memory you will cherish forever.
The beauty of this natural experience is in becoming one with nature, as the birds fly freely through the woods, no two walks are ever the same and lifetime memories are created on a daily basis. A Hawk Walk is the ideal family activity suitable for people of all ages.
