Take a break from the city and head out to Otago Peninsula for this nature tour around undisturbed bush and native animal colonies. Instead of joining a tour with a guide reading from a script, learn all sorts of things about the local flora and fauna from your guide, a former Department of Conservation ranger with decades of experience in species management. Cruise around Taiaroa Head Nature Reserve, where royal albatross nest and breed, and keep your eyes peeled for fur seals, penguins and more.
  • Follow your guide around a series of historic Māori sites and hear their stories
  • Enjoy a freshly-made lunch in the middle of the Peninsula’s lush native forest
  • No driving required: convenient hotel pick-ups and returns are included
  • Not just there and back: spend a full day exploring the forests and beaches

Wildlife tour
, Nov 2019
We had an outstanding experience on this tour. We were able to see the diversity of this part of the South Island. The walk in the woods was particularly informative. Our guide not only told us the names of the birds and trees but also the intertwined relationships that exist in this ecosystem. He was very knowledgeable. We enyoyed the walk on the beach to see the sea lions. We had a great time on the boat ride watching the albatross, blue penguins, dolphins and other wild life. The tour also included a history of the discovery of New Zealand and the history and cultural of the Maori. Since one of our guides was Maor, fliuent in his language, he provided a unigue insight into his cultural. It was a great experience. One that we will always remember.
