Meerkat experience & bird displays
A belated wedding anniversary present to ourselves was to meet the meerkats - totally amazing to have them eat from your hand and use your shoulder as a lookout post!! Thank you so much Laurie.
The bird displays were impressive, informative & amusing - Sophie knows her stuff and with the other handlers it's a slick performance from the birds even when they slightly deviate from the plan!
Husky camping experience
We can highly recommend the wonderful Eagle Heights wildlife foundation!
We have just returned home from husky camping! What an experience!
We were checked in by a very young man at the reception desk he was absolutely delightful and explained everything to us.
We arrived a little early and had time to watch the birds of prey show before our experience. The show was presented by Sophie, who gave an amazing informative talk for an hour about their incredible birds of prey, there were lots of displays with birds sweeping over our heads, it was magnificent! Sophie really knew her stuff and clearly knew each of the birds really well, it was fabulous.
We then were allocated our teepees, they were beautifully clean and nice and tall, plenty of space for four of us.
Shaun and Dean were looking after us for our husky experience, they are really great guys. Everything was so beautifully organised, after we had settled in to our teepees, a full selection of hot and cold drinks, juices, water was laid out for us, while we were getting to know everyone delicious pizzas were being cooked, everyone was catered for, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten were no problem!
We enjoyed our pizzas, and then the first pack of huskies came to visit us, we were given loads of treats for them, and they very happily trotted round, let us pet them and enjoyed the treats, it was great fun watching them do their own thing, they were all very different personalities and all very beautiful dogs.
We were lucky enough to have another round with different huskies, all beautiful again and enjoying the treats.
Sean had lit the fire pit by now, and handed out toasting forks and marshmallows, there were chocolate digestive biscuits also to make s’mores,
Again, really thoughtfully a vegetarian/vegan option was offered, we were really impressed with that!
Sean then added something to the fire to make it burn all sorts of different colours, it was amazing!
To finish the evening another few gorgeous huskies came to see us, some even gave paws for their treats. Sean and Dean really love these huskies, and had so much knowledge and brilliant stories about them, they were highly entertaining.
It really was an amazing evening and we feel honoured to have participated in it.
We spent the rest of the evening enjoying the fire and a few drinks.
It was super being able to listen to the sounds of the wildlife during the night.
In the morning, Sean had laid out another selection of hot and cold drinks for us all, then there was a tasty breakfast of delicious pastries, including again a vegetarian and vegan option.
We can’t recommend this experience highly enough, if you love animals, you will love this!
Thanks so much to everyone at the Eagle Heights wildlife foundation, we will be back!
Great afternoon tea and excellent birds of prey display. Plus lots of animals to see, all in a beautiful setting. Every member of staff we encountered was friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. Couldn’t fault anything.
Cream Tea for two
A lovely day yet again at Eagle Heights that was only made better this time with a yummy cream Tea for two. Del had never been Eagle Heights before but he was very impressed by your whole setup. This visit was probably at least my 20th visit over the years. See you again next year guys + thank you for a brilliant day. xx

We attended last weekend for the husky experience and loved it. The staff were so amazing and friendly and catered well for my daughter who has food allergies. The eagle displays were great. The animal trainer was really informative. As well as attending the husky experience we visited during the day and my children loved holding the owl and bearded dragon. Definitely recommend it.
Beautiful location and gorgeous Alpacas. Alex was super knowledgable and passionate about the experience and the animals were lovely to meet. Highly recommend for any animal lovers.
Amazing Husky Day!!! :-D
We went on a Husky Hike in the morning, then had the VIP Kennel Tour in the afternoon, i can honestly say this was an amazing experience and we had the best time ever. Great staff, very knowledgeable and friendly, great scenery, just had a fab time from start to finish. THANK YOU SO MUCH x
Fantastic husky camping experience
We travelled nearly 3hrs to the husky camping experience to surprise our 9&11 year old sons and so glad we did. We had a fantastic time, pizzas, husky dogs, marshmallows and shmors, more husky dogs and then even more husky dogs! They love their biscuits and some will speak and give you a paw
Lovely morning spent with the Alpacas who are so sweet and friendly. Any one would love this, it's really a slow stroll round the fields as the Alpacas want to stop every other minute to eat the grass. Alex, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Eagle heights afternoon tea
Had a wonderful day at eagle heights - the afternoon tea was absolutely delicious, so fresh with plenty of tea and coffee - the staff were so helpful. Then was amazed by the awesome bird displays- a memorable day.
Fabulous eagle experience
Amazing day at Eagle Heights. Eagle experience was incredible, flew four different birds in the beautiful Kent countryside. Kev was a knowledgable and friendly host. Sophie’s bird demonstrations are unmissable too. Will definitely be back!
We had a lovely afternoon at Eagle Heights. There was plenty of scrummy food, with lots of tea and coffee. The member of staff who looked after us could not do enough for us to make our afternoon memorable. And then to have the birds of prey flying just for us was just lovely. Thank you to all involved!
Alpaca Walking fun
What a lovely way to spend a few hours. Calm and tranquil.
Nice renovations going on around the site, good to be bringing everything up to scratch.
Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable keepers and staff, and a great Bird show.
All in all a lovely day.
I booked a husky hike as a treat for both myself and my boyfriend and we had so much fun. The Huskies were of course stunning and our guide was very knowledgable and chatty during our hike. We would definitely come again, maybe in the autumn when it is cooler so we can walk a bit more. The poor huskies got a bit hot on the day we went but were still amazing!
Amazing Husky Hiking
I truly enjoyed Husky hike. They are all so adorable and friendly.
I also really like the fact that they are all rescued dogs. I will definitely come back again.
Only thing I was a bit disappointed was that it is "Husky" Hike but I've got a Malamute. I understand that there is a difficulty of choosing which dog should go for walk this time, but I was really really looking forward to walking with huskies.
It would have been nicer if I could have an opportunity to tell the stuff that I was desired to communicate with Husky.
Husky Camping Experience
This is our second time on this experience and as last time it didn’t disappoint and we had a lovely evening! The huskies were beautiful and we loved spending some time with these beautiful animals! The evening around the campfire with the food and drinks and great company was fantastic! Shaun was fab, very helpful and catered for everyone and we loved catching up with him too! The teepees are great and very spacious! Hopefully will be able to come back very soon! Thanks all for a great time!
Meercat experience and afternoon tea
Had a wonderful day despite it raining the whole time. The staff were brilliant and the animals even better. The bird display was full of information given in an entertaining manner the gentleman knew so much about the birds and obviously cared a great deal about them, it was a joy to listen to him My friend and myself really enjoyed it. The meercats are so beautiful and to feed them was just brilliant. Would definitely recommend it and would love to do it all again thank you all
Karen Tracey Avis
Me and my husband had a fantastic day at Eagle Heights, my son brought me the owl handing for my birthday and we were not disappointed. The owls were so beautiful and well looked after and the gentlemen (sorry I forgot his name) who was showing us the owls and telling us all about them was so interesting and informative, I could have listened to him all day. The staff are so helpful and nothing is to much trouble, I would recommend everyone to go there and visit at least once and for one will be back.
Had a truely fabulous experience flying 4 Eagles Sky, Borat, Eddie and Noble.
Kev is a very down to earth and knowledgeable handler and it was a pleasure to be in his company, the time just flew past!!!
We will be back again and again methinks.
Keep up the good work
Husky Camp Experience- simply awesome
We stayed Thursday 30th May and thoroughly enjoyed the camping whilst meeting the huskies at the camp fire.
It was booked as a surprise for my 10 year old daughter who completely loved stroking and feeding a variety of huskies around the camp fire.
The guides, Shaun and Dean, were superb- friendly and knowledgeable and great company whilst always on charge of their dogs, and all the other staff on site were just as welcoming.
The evening food was cooked well and right up our street, although some people may prefer salads but all dietary needs were taken into account and asked by the staff upfront.
The bell tents were spacious and enjoyed being able to look around the rest of the sites at the meerkats, servals and birds of prey.
Already considering returning again, as was a brilliant experience.

Husky camp experience
We went as a half term family treat and it was a great trip which was enjoyed by all. The huskies were fabulous and we had lots of contact time with them. We also stayed to watch the bird display, which was excellent too. All the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The only down side was the meals provided, which were quite basic and simply not enough, particularly for 2 teenage boys, especially the breakfast. Othewise it would have been 5 stars!
I went with my wife for her Eagle Experience. She flew 4 magnificent eagles and Kevin was a wonderful instructor and so full of knowledge about these birds. A lovely day.
Amazing experience. Friendly staff. Lots to do. Would definitely recommend!
Paula Garay Bojorquez
Went to Eagle heights with my boy to walk a husky, great place dogs were lovely, the watched bird show lovely place, lovely people.
Meerkat experience.......wow what an experience it was
We love doing the experience's here and thus one didn't disappoint us! Was amazing to have them climbing over us and being able to hand feed them as well. Their keeper Alex ( also a director of eagle heights) was really knowledgeable and takes pride in the meerkats. Can't wait for our next experience
Great birds, lovely site
Went for an owl handling experience with my grandad.
The area is gorgeous and the site itself, which seems to be an old dairy farm, is quaint and well looked after, though understandably rustic!
Staff were all very knowledgeable and friendly.
Owl handling experience was great, with some lovely birds, then as soon as we finished the falconry display started, which was also very good with lovely birds and a knowledgeable handler.
Would definitely recommend for a family afternoon out or an interesting date.
Mrs Susan Coals
Had a fantastic visit this morning with the Meerkats, far exceeded our expectations and Alex our guide was very informative - we plan to.visit again, but next time have a walk with the Huskeys
Despite the dodgy weather we enjoyed our visit to Eagle Heights with afternoon tea included (birthday gift). Animals are obviously well cared for. Favourite part was seeing Kayla the bald eagle flying in the display - amazing!
Brilliant day. Even the weather couldn't dampen the the day. Pete was excellent and answered all our questions. We flew four different owls and loved little Winston ( name suits him)
Lynne Dorothy Halse
A great day out. Sophie was very knowledgeable and we flew 4 birds including the barn owl - my favourite. Thank you
My daughter really enjoyed the experience. And a lovely place to spend a few hours.
We spent a wonderful Easter Sunday at Eagle Heights, specifically for the booked Husky Hike.
As a family of animal lovers, my husband especially loves huskies, it was the next best thing to experience the dogs as we don't have the set up or experience to look after a husky of our own. It was really good to learn more about the breed and the joys and pitfalls of looking the dogs. The staff were more than happy to answer all our questions and it was clear how much they loved working with the dogs and at the wildlife foundation. Their knowledge and interactions with each dog only emphasised how much they cared and how looked after these animals were.
As a bonus we finished the hike just in time for the bird display and this was brilliant, really fun and full of interesting facts.
I really hope to return in the summer as it is a lovely drive out and a great place to spend a few hours.
Excellent and informative. We loved holding and flying our favourite birds and to see them up close. Stayed for display and look around the centre. Staff are so passionate and committed. This was one of many visits we've made and we will continue to return.
Eagle Height Husky Hike
There are 28 Husky dogs, all different sizes and temperaments. Our leader picked out the most suitable dogs for the people in the group, there were two each per dog with a lead each; they are very strong and we walked in a specific order so the dogs would get on. The hike was through the countryside and woods, stopping for the dogs to have a drink and we could make a fuss of them and take photos. They are extremely well looked after and the Guy who took our hike out was really knowledgeable.
We absolutely loved it.
Best day out ever !
I paid for for husky kennel tour for my
Family. Probably one of the best things I’ve ever done, the dogs are beautiful and well cared for. Some have come from horrible past owners and these guys have given them a second chance.
MEET THE MEERKATS
The meerkats were magical. The birds of prey flying display was one of the best that we've ever seen. We even saw the serval cat. A really good day out.
I had a great time with Kevin handling and flying 4 beautiful Eagles he was really knowledgeable and made it a really great experience, we will definitely be back when the weather improves.
A great day out!
We really enjoyed our husky kennel tour, it was great fun! The dogs were so well behaved and friendly! Staff were welcoming, a brilliant day out! Thank you
VIP Experience Day
Had a fantastic time seeing the flying displays, having a flying encounter with an owl and a Harris hawk. Best bit was meeting all the huskies. Only downside was not realising that as VIP visitors we could have pre-booked our lunch. We queued 30 minutes in the café to get lunch and were then late getting to the huskie enclosures. The lady then told us that we could have pre-booked – but other than that it was a brilliant day.
Coral Ann Fallon
Enjoyed meerkat experience. However found it short time wise given price paid
VIP Acitivty Day
Attended the VIP day today with my husband and Mum! Marisa was fantastic as always! Fun and full of facts! Perfect Mother’s Day gift! Huskies were a dream and the birds were
Just stars! Thanks so much! Sharon Rogers xx
Owl Handling Experience
Was booked this for a special birthday and had an absolutely wonderful time. The handler (sorry his name escapes me) was knowledgeable and was happy to answer all the questions we asked. The birds were beautiful and happy to fly to and from strangers. Have been to Eagle Heights several times over the years with family and it is a great place for a lovely day out. The staff work hard conserving the animals they look after. Well done. Would recommend to everyone not for an experience but to go and see some stunning birds of prey that you wouldn't normally see.
Absolute pleasure Eyes so close to Eagle Eyes. Face to Face
Awesome owl experience
A lovely morning spent with 4 beautiful owls. Flying, feeding and learning with the knowledgeable and passionate handler, Hannah.
This was followed up with a flying display with some great birds of prey. Then a nice cafe lunch, and a look around the rest of the centre. A great way to spend the day. Highly recommend.
Lovely tea, very well presented and with a good choice of sandwiches. Our request for plain scones was met, which was very pleasing. Nice choice of cakes too. It was great to see the birds of prey after even though the weather wasn’t conducive to outdoor activities.
VIP activity day
Having been to Eagle Heights several times before I had a good idea on what to expect. I was given the experience as a gift for myself and my partner, and it was brilliant, we both thoroughly enjoyed our day, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and for a day that's aimed as a sort of "all-round insight" type of day, you still get a good amount of time in each part. I would very much recommend this to others.
Pam and Daran
What a brilliant day, this was the best birthday gift I could have given to my son Daran for his birthday, he has loved birds since he was a little boy. Kev was just amazing with so much experience with the Eagles we had the privilege to meet today, my son absolutely loved flying the Eagles and learning so much from Kev. We will definitely be back to visit again soon, Thank you.
VIP Animal Experience
What an amazing day!
Absolutely brilliant day. Flic, our guide for the day was excellent. The knowledge and passion was great, I picked up so much information.
Sophie was running the bird shows and, again, was passionate and knowledgeable about the birds- even managing to convince people the vultures aren't actually bad birds!
Staff were friendly and attentive, nothing seemed too much for them. I cannot find any faults for the day at all.
Thank you again for a memorable day, I will definitely be going again!
Did the VIP experience today, Flick was great and telling us the background to the birds and the getting to hold them and meeting the huskies was great. Sophie's bird shows were the best part of the day showing the birds as real characters and individuals with so much educational information but delivered in a way you did not realise you were learning at all. Amazing and well worth a visit
Only down side was missing out on chance to hold the bald eagle who could have been brought into us
Guides were friendly people and knowledgeable about the Powell-cotton museum and the estate, they made you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the day. Alpacas were very easy to handle and look after, it was lovely to take them out in a open area and then for a walk. Great day
We booked an afternoon tea for 4 via groupon and I am pleased we did so through groupon as if I had paid full price I would have been even more disappointed. Sandwiches left a lot to be desired, we had between the 4 of us 3 smoked salmon fingers, 4 cucumber, 4 egg and 4 cheese and pickle. Very low price items and not luxury, perhaps adding a few more varied flavours, perhaps a ham, or tuna would bring it up a notch. Cakes were also disappointing, in th advertising picture it shows a vast selection but in reality it was not the case. Sadly I don’t think I would return.
Amazing eagle handling experience
100% would recommend! What an amazing place! some incredible animals and the staff are brilliant. Had a fab eagle experience day today which I'll never forget, didn't want it to end. We absolutely loved Kevin, our instructor, what a great guy - clearly has a lot of passion for his animals. An asset to the foundation! We will come back again I am sure of it. Thanks for an incredible experience xxx
I bought this for my husband he loved it and said that Kevin, obviously, is passionate about the birds and that he was able to pass that onto the experience recipients. The only criticism is that I would have liked to have seen my husband completing this experience but, after paying £99 for the afternoon it seemed excessive to have to pay a further £20 for me to watch.
Fabulous Husky Hike
This weekend we did the Husky Hike at Eagle Heights. Fabulous experience, we had a mother and daughter duo Heidi & Coco, which was appropriate as I took my daughter. Our guide Helen was a delight. The scenery is lovely and the dogs a joy. One to do again for sure
We had a great time. Our guide was really friendly and clearly has a great bond with the dogs. My little boy loved it. We will be back
In spite of the terrible weather we received a warm welcome and the Meerkat experience was very special and unforgettable. We will certainly return ... but in the summer !!
Relaxed yet informative fun. Pete our host was great as was seeing the animals close up on our gloves. Many thanks!
Loved every minute of it. An experience you wouldn’t normally expect with the meerkat brillant get reallyup close and person with them.
This is the third time I’ve been to eagle heights now and every time I have enjoyed it. The bird shows are great, and today I done the husky walk which was nice. The staff are helpful and informative and I would definitely go back again in this great location
Howard and Sally Drake
Booked the owl experience for my husbands birthday. Brilliant. Although the weather was wet and we had to be inside, it did not detract from the show at all. Learned so much that we didn't know before and being so close and handling the birds was amazing. Stayed on to watch a bird of prey display which was equally good. Will definitely be back (on a finer day) with the grandchildren! Thankyou Eagle Heights.
What a fabulous day we had, great weather, great place and lovely staff.
Your staff are polite friendly and extremely informative about all the animals that they clearly are passionate about.
The bird displays are amazing and spectacular and so informative you feel as if you are learning something all the time. The huskies that you have are so beautiful and you can tell they are loved and cared for so well.
We then had the most delicious afternoon tea, so fresh and tasty.
We would certainly recommend anyone to visit and have a great experience, we will certainly be back. Well done and thank you so much for an absolutely perfect day.
Mr Peter Shrewsbury
My wife and I enjoyed the Husky Hike immensely and learned a lo about huskies from our very knowledgeable guide. The climax was going in with four of the huskies which is an unforgettable experience. It was also good to experience the bird display even though it was cut short by the weather. Presenter was very good. All in all a thoroughly excellent day, Thank you all.
Great day out
Really great day out, great experience highly recommended. Our guide for the VIP day experience. I think her name was Emma , she was a blonde lady was very knowledgeable and funny and made the day much more interesting so top marks there. You can tell the birds are all well looked after and every effort is made to add to their quality of life and maintaining the place. The shows were excellent we saw one in the morning and later in the day. We both really want to come back and try the owl experience and meerkat experience. Yes yes yes there is a lot of maintenance work going on around the place , and in areas it absolutely needs the work doing , some parts look incredibly tired BUT I don’t think it detracted from the great experience and I think you are nit picking if it does.
My daughter booked me the eagle experience for a present. On the day I was introduced to Kevin and spent the next couple of hours one to one with him handling numerous eagles, all of which were beautiful creatures. Kevin explained the differences and characteristics of each one including Charlie who would go into a trance if you tickled his neck. To be inches away from these fantastic birds sitting on your arm feeding was indeed an experience and not one to be missed. The bird of prey show was also very good.
Small downside was that there was a lot of building work being done but once finished this will be a 5 star attraction.
Had a lovely time with my husband and 9 year old daughter. Had photos taken holding birds. Had booked to have afternoon tea which was great. Watching the bird display was brilliant. Would go back again.
Amazing VIP experience
Me and my wife had an amazing day watching the amazing bird displays, cuddling the huskies and flying some birds with a tasty lunch in the middle. All of the staff were welcoming and very knowledgeable throughout the day. Definitely worth every penny
Meet the meerkats
I got this for my daughter for her 11th birthday. She loved it! The keeper was very welcoming and had a lot of knowledge about the meerkats. There was a small group of us (4 people). The meerkats were very friendly and cute, running over us and feeding from our hands. It lasted roughly 45 minutes. It was definitely worth it.
We did the Owl Experience today. We flew 4 owls; a little owl, a barn owl, a tawny owl and an eagle owl with Hannah. It was excellent. It was so good to be able to hold the bird yourself, experience a little fly and get up close to them. They are beautiful creatures. Hannah was really friendly, knowledgeable and informative and made our first bird of prey handling experience a real pleasure. Would highly recommend doing this activity. We watched the bird display afterwards which was also really good. Owls, eagles and vultures were in the display and again the staff were tip top!
Thank you and I am sure we will return!
VIP Animal Activity Day
For a family of 5 with 3 teenagers we all had a great day out. The husky’s were gorgeous and the first hand experience with some very impressive birds was amazing. The staff were very informative and friendly. The day was good value and included a £5 lunch voucher.
Husky Kennel Tour
What a fantastic experience!!! Well over an hour in the charming company of the beautiful huskies. They are so affectionate and good natured.
If you love dogs....this is a MUST!!!
My wife and I had a great time watching the flying displays and looking round the park seeing the birds and animals. The staff were very friendly and happy to answer questions. During our visit we had 'afternoon tea', this could not have been nicer, very well presented and very enjoyable with attentive staff pandering to our needs. A great day out, thanks.
Husky Summer Camp
I visited with my husband and 13 year old daughter. We walked round the park in the day - the birds were incredible and we enjoyed the opportunity to handle them and watch them fly. The evening was gorgeous - the tents are spacious, the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the huskies, well they were amazing, albeit a little crazy :-) We would all recommend this experience to families and couples alike.
Husky summer camp
Booked this for my daughter's 16th birthday. Absolutely awesome time knowledgeable and highly dedicated staff. The animals are looked after well with extreme dedication. All staff are extremely professional and accomadated our needs. Adequate food in the evening and morning tea coffee and juice on tap. Beautiful location and the teepees were clean. We slept well was just a little cold and floor hard for me even though cushion provided so if your delicate like me take better sleeping bag and a mattress of your own. The experience was way above our expectations and good value considering you get accommodation 2 meals drinks and the experience all in. Highly recommended can't wait to visit again. Thank you so much again for a great time xxxx
Eagle Heights - Lovely day, ruined by smokers
My wife, myself and 2 year old had a lovely time today. We really enjoyed being able to have photos with some of the birds. The only disappointment was a few people walking around the main area smoking! One of these people had a bundle of keys and looked as if he was possibly staff (sorry if I’m assuming wrong) either way he was smoking in the main area whilst children were having photos with the birds.
