Vista Parties' World of Birds Birthday Party Package
Road-trip to this fun Hout Bay park and spend your child’s special day amongst feathered friends
Throwing your child the best birthday bash possible can be a bit nerve-wracking, so why not minimise all pre-, during- and post-party stress by taking a step back and letting experts in the biz, Vista Parties – children’s parties and event organising whizzes – do what they do best: make your kid’s special day one for the books!
Ideal for children of all ages, Vista Parties has created the perfect party package for kids who enjoy a little adventure in the form of its World of Birds experience. Beginning at the V&A Waterfront, this venture sees partygoers hop onto the City Sightseeing bus and take an exciting, and somewhat informative, road-trip to the World of Birds in Hout Bay. Along the way, the group will learn interesting and fun facts about the Mother City as well as enjoy spectacular sights of the Peninsula.
Once at their destination, the party will spend time exploring the largest bird park in Africa walking through the various aviaries showcasing the beautiful and unique winged creatures. With over 3 000 birds (and small animals) of 400 different species onsite, the World of Birds provides all – children, parents and bird-fanatics – with the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with their favourite feathered friends.
In addition, the group will take part in an exhilarating treasure hunt to “find our national bird” as well as be able to feed the monkeys before ending off with a yummy picnic (a light lunch comprising seasonal fruit, jelly cups and an option of wraps, hot dogs or beef burgers) – complete with birthday celebrations, party packs (Lays chips, Smarties, Fizzers, juice and more) and cake – alongside the park’s majestic flamingos before heading back to the V&A Waterfront.
Taking care of everything – from all the bookings and finer details to the setting up and cleaning up – Vista Parties, and its World of Birds package, seeks to make your kid’s birthday party an unforgettable experience jam-packed with adventures, activities and action that will have partygoers – and parents – talking for years to come!
What a wonderful way to celebrate your child’s birthday.
