This Save Kiwi Month we are offering you and a friend the opportunity to join us on a once in a lifetime kiwi experience.

Choose your own Kiwi Adventure - Header Image

This is your opportunity to see our national icon in the feathers.

This year is a bit special as we are letting you choose your own kiwi experience:

We have two equally magnificent opportunities for you to pick.

  • Witness kiwi life at the burrow face with a tour of the Crombie Lockwood Kiwi Burrow. This is our custom built incubation and hatching facility at Wairakei Golf + Sanctuary in Taupō. This is an opportunity to see Operation Nest Egg in action – where chicks are incubated, hatched and raised before they are released to their new home. This experience will also include a trip out with the ranger at the sanctuary to check on one of the resident kiwi at Wairakei kiwi creche.
  • Option number 2 is a trip to the islands. Travel to Motutapu Island from downtown Auckland and be part of a unique experience to release a kiwi to its new home. Motutapu Island is a pest free to jewel in the Hauraki Gulf and home to a wide range of endangered species including takahē, tīeke and of course kiwi.

So the next biggest question after you choose you Kiwi Experience is working out who you want to take with you.
