10/10 experience!!!! We were lucky and booked the 10am tour, which gave us a chance to see both a newly hatched baby kiwi, as well as a 16 day old kiwi that was brought out only during our visit for its health check of the day! Very informative and fun tour with a very friendly and fun guide. Definitely worth the entry fee, especially as a portion goes towards continuing their efforts of conservation.
Well run. Excellent...
