    Fun educational experience

    The kiwi tour was informative, as were the cultural demonstrations. The performance was good, and the interactive portion was fun. Enjoyed the dinner. All in all, a nice evening.

    Maori experience, kiwi tour and hangi

    Excellent experience. The park has some beautiful animals and the kiwi and Kea are awesome. Allow extra time to do the whole park as the kiwi tour only does part of it. The dinner was absolutely delicious with plenty to go round. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly and the Maori experience exceptional

    Entertaining Cultural Evening

    Our tour of the kiwis and other native wildlife was very interesting. The Maori welcome was dramatic and at the same time culturally enlightening. The time given for us to see how life was for the early Maoris was very limited and we felt rushed. What we did see, we would have enjoyed our evening even more if given more time. The singing and dance performance was beautiful.

    Educational and Friendly

    Went in with no expectations and was thrilled! Get there early, as with you get access to the whole wildlife park and on the tour you only do 1/3 of it. Tricky to get to the location but worth it. Great to see the animals/birds I'd been hearing about, the Maori experience was special and interesting and dinner was delicious. I was extra lucky to have a great, social, friendly and hilarious group to share the experience with!
