Hooded Vulture

Necrosyrtes monachus

Africa’s smallest species of vulture, this scavenger will feed almost exclusively on carrion.

Whilst vultures have strong stomachs, many of the ‘Old World’ vultures (those that live in Europe, Africa and Asia) have experienced massive declines due to human poisoning or feeding on cattle treated with Diclofenac which is poisonous to them.

Contrary to popular opinion, vultures are among the cleanest of all animals. Their short head feathers are easier to keep clean!

Book an Experience

Watch an owl swoop through its natural, woodland habitat, stroll in open countryside accompanied by a hawk and witness an eagle or vulture soar before diving back down to earth and onto the gloved arm.
