School Tours

The Montecasino Bird Gardens has proved to be the preferred destination for school groups. We offer specially conducted tours for schools (Grade 1-12 only) during which guides take learners through the fabulous world of birds and animals. Schools must book tours and tour guides in advance.

The Montecasino Bird Gardens is no longer able to accommodate school community service children as volunteers at the Bird Gardens, as we have partnered with Unisa (University of Southern Africa) and have developed a tailor made volunteer program for their Nature Conservation Students.  We therefore, no longer have the capacity to take in school community service children. This will be effective from 1 January 2014.
