The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is home to the largest walk-in aviary in the world. The KL Bird Park was opened amidst the scenic Lake Gardens in 1991 and currently houses more than 3,000 birds of approximately 200 local and foreign species. A leisurely stroll through the KL Bird Park is a great way to spend an afternoon. There are various paths that lead visitors through four different zones, where you can get up close to colourful parakeets and storks, watch peacocks strutting around proudly and see many different birds in free flight. Please scroll down to view photos taken during my recent visit to the KL Bird Park. Oh, and don’t miss the video of a male peacock courting a female – just keep scrolling and you’ll get there! 🙂

If you’re visiting Kuala Lumpur and looking for a lovely park to stroll around, check out the KL Bird Park. It’s definitely one of my recommended things to do in Kuala Lumpur. Book a private tour of the KL Bird Park (including transfers), Butterfly Farm and Orchid/Hibiscus Gardens.
