Walk qui­etly through New Zealand’s largest walk­through aviary hous­ing 16 species of na­tive birds and a cheeky kaka may land nearby. For an ex­pe­ri­ence you’ll never for­get, go be­hind the scenes on a Face2Face en­counter to meet our lemurs, south­ern white rhi­noc­eros, sia­mang or chee­tah. Form that spe­cial bond the comes from meet­ing a wild an­i­mal up close and know that 10 per­cent of your en­counter fee goes to­wards help­ing en­dan­gered an­i­mals in the wild. Catch free zoo keeper talks de­liv­ered by our pas­sion­ate team and learn more about the char­ac­ters and per­son­al­i­ties of our an­i­mals, their feed­ing and en­rich­ment.
