The Park specialises in providing amazing wildlife experiences – travel through the Lion Reserve (costs and conditions apply – please contact us for details), hand feed giraffe, meet rhino up close and observe kiwi.

    My unique moment

    I had an enjoyable time with the wildlife, taking in this rare experience of the open park. I sat down with 'Fuzu', the gorilla and watched the antics of the meerkats. Don't go with the idea of completing a race circuit in record time but allow yourself a couple of hours to take it in. Families of all ages can follow the presentations in the pamphlet or design their own! You will go away feeling good, especially if the weather plays its part.

    A bit run down, the Gorillas looked sad....

    We did enjoy our day here with our toddler. It is a bit run down though. It had rain that morning and there were big puddles everywhere, especially the barnyard for farm animals. A bit of sand would do the trick. We loved the giraffes and feeding them!! The meerkats, keas and porcupines were great too. The volunteer guides were super awesome. I think the lions and cheetahs were a bit sad looking, but seeing the gorillas last was a bit of a let down. They looked bored and depressed. I know the park gives them lots of things to do, but I think they are too much like humans and dont like to be contained and on display. The other apes seemed all good. I think Orana park needs to consolidate what they have, so they can make it awesome. Send the Gorillas back to Africa. Cafe was great!
