Malta Falconry Centre Tours

Malta Falconry Centre
Situated on the outskirts of Siggiewi, the Malta Falconry Centre is the only place of its kind in the country. The center breeds native species of birds of prey with the goal of re-introducing them—and the ancient art of falconry—to the island nation.

The Basics
Visit the Malta Falconry Centre to watch falconers fly several different species of birds of prey. Falconers are on hand to provide information on every bird flown and to answer questions. Species in the center’s aviary include the peregrine (or Maltese) falcon, the golden eagle, the African fish eagle, the steppe eagle, and the griffon vulture. The center also offers bird-handling sessions and educational talks for student groups.
