our Experience...

“The tour of the Natural New Zealand section of the reserve was wonderful. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and clearly enthusiastic about the wildlife he was showing us. We got to feed the Kunekune pigs, see Keas up close, and of course enter the Kiwi enclosure. Although the enclosure was very dark, there was no glass - only fences - which meant that when we spotted a kiwi, we could get really close to it. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the reserve and thought it was worth every cent! ”
