    Great day/night out

    Family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife park. It was well set out and easy to navigate around. The animals were so friendly. Rachael our guide for the kiwi tour was so knowledgeable. The highlight was definitely the Maori cultural experience. The performers were fantastic and personalised the night. We learnt so much. JD our host made the night run smooth and was great, serving up a fantastic hangi. The deer feeding was a bonus treat for everyone! Highly recommend this experience. Allow 2-3 hrs to explore the park.

    Fun educational experience

    The kiwi tour was informative, as were the cultural demonstrations. The performance was good, and the interactive portion was fun. Enjoyed the dinner. All in all, a nice evening.

    Entertaining Cultural Evening

    Our tour of the kiwis and other native wildlife was very interesting. The Maori welcome was dramatic and at the same time culturally enlightening. The time given for us to see how life was for the early Maoris was very limited and we felt rushed. What we did see, we would have enjoyed our evening even more if given more time. The singing and dance performance was beautiful.
