Eagle Encounters

About Us

Eagle Encounters was founded in 2001 by Hank and Tracy Chalmers. The land, generously donated by Spier Wine Farm, provides the perfect location for our rehabilitation, release, conservation, education and eco-tourism programmes. Eagle Encounters is a self-funded Non-Profit Organization. Hank Chalmers met his first falcon when he was about 5 - his father was one of the first falconers in South Africa, trained by an American. By the time he was 8, Hank was in love with raptors (and a certain beautiful black eagle). Many years later, he and Tracy decided to become active players in the conservation arena and preserve South Africa's raptors for their children and future generations. Tracy left the corporate world to administrate and market Eagle Encounters, and Hank is hands on with rescue, rehabilitation and the conservation programmes. Their home is filled with animals of all sorts, and their three children thrive in an environment where porcupines, meerkats and raptors are welcome day and night. Today Eagle Encounters is a much-loved centre, visited by both locals and tourists from around the world.
