Parahawking is paragliding and interacting with a trained bird of prey in its own natural environment. By combining paragliding with the ancient art of falconry, trained vultures will fly with you and guide you through the sky as you fly. This activity is an enrichment exercise for non-releasable, rehabilitated raptors and a new way to promote global vulture conservation issues.

An incredible team of raptors including Hawks, Owls, Falcons and Vultures.

Take the birds on a hawk walk around the field and have them follow you from tree to tree then land gently on your outstretched arm. Take a stroll with the amazing Vultures then witness them soar using the rising thermal currents, then as they disappear into the blue skies, call them down to gently land on your arm.
