The Karori Wildlife Sanctuary’s restored forest and wetlands provide a habitat for more than 30 native bird species, as well as frogs, lizards and cute green geckos.
View the exhibition tracing the development of New Zealand’s natural history, take a guided walking tour through the predator-proof, 225-hectare (550-acre) sanctuary, then refuel at the park’s cafe overlooking the lake.
This was a wonderful experience. We only met one kiwi but to see one in the wild was amazing! Have already recommended toe trip to several travellers that we have met along the way!
We had a very good day
A nice and interesting trip. I didn't allow enough time on this occasion. I will allow more time on the next occasion.
Buses stop nearby, or it’s 10 minutes by taxi, 20 minutes by bike and around 1 hour on foot via the botanic garden.
