Bannu pheasantry is the only recreational centre in district Bannu. The people especially families visit the pheasantry frequently. Huge numbers of TDPs living around the pheasantry take their children to show them different birds and gain knowledge about wild life. The most important thing for the TDPs is that the entry to the pheasantry is free of cost. Hundreds of TDPs visit the pheasantry on daily basis to enjoy the pleasing environment.
