iMeet the animals

Nature Parks let us safely get close to animals we see only on TV

See for yourself amazing kiwi, a cheeky kea, and other original unique fauna.

Park guides often show us the highlights and if time permits, guests can feed the friendly animals from New Zealand and other parts of the world.
