Add to List

Experience the ultimate animal adventure at Orana Wildlife Park.

Set in 80 hectares, within 15 minutes’ drive of Christchurch airport, Orana is New Zealand’s only open range zoo.

The Park is home to New Zealand’s only gorillas and the country’s only orang-utans too!

Over 400 animals, representing more than 70 species, are displayed at the Park.

Regular animal feed presentations occur daily and are accompanied by a presentation from a wildlife guide.

The Park specialises in providing amazing wildlife experiences – travel through the Lion Reserve (costs and conditions apply – please contact us for details), hand feed giraffe, meet rhino up close and observe kiwi. Visitors can also enjoy the antics of tigers, cheetah, Tasmanian devils, monkeys, meerkats and more! The Park has an extensive native fauna section including two large walk-through bird aviaries plus one of the most comprehensive public collections of native geckos.

The Farmyard enables people to meet friendly domestic animals. Visitors can ride on our complimentary Safari Shuttle, join a guided walkabout tour and/or meander around the Park at their leisure.

The Park contains a children’s adventure playground, and two large picnic areas. It’s a full day of fun for the entire family.

    Orsum Orana

    We spent 5 hours at Orana. Had a fantastic time getting close (behind barriers) to animals and a highlight was feeding the giraffes. So much to see and do. NZ is very spoilt to have Orana.

    orana wlidlife park

    Very interesting day, the volunteer staff are amazing. The feeding programe allows participation for all. The lion feeding from a metal cage that is driven into their pen is incredible. They have recently had a giraffe born to the Wildlife park, who shy at first can be coaxed to feed from humans

    Best Zoo in New Zealand

    Apart from the ape exhibit most of the enclosures are fairly basic, but there's an honesty that's appealing about 'Orana Park'. I get the imoression that everyone at 'Orana' ie workers and volunteers alike are passionate and truly care about the park and its animals. The animal zoo talks were enjoyable particularly the lions. And you can feed the giraffes for free or get closer to the lions or feed the lemurs for an extra fee. It was great having the shuttle transport available too.
