Always wanted to explore a forest at night and spot a kiwi in the wild?
Stay with us at Kauri Coast TOP 10 Holiday Park and book in for a Self Guided Kiwi Night Tour. You will receive a 'Kiwi Walk Kit' (comprises one of our Guide Red Lamps, with a wide angled lens for optimum spotting, a set of comprehensive Guide Notes and extra white lights for your safety - all in a handy back pack), and a briefing from one of our knowledgable team. Then, as darkness falls you will travel the 4km to Trounson Kauri Park (own vehicle required) and set off on your adventure.
This is probably your best chance to spot a North Island Brown Kiwi in the wild! We estimate your chance of seeing Kiwi is 50%, as you will benefit from our first hand knowledge and experience of Trounson Park and Kiwi Spotting. But theres a lot more to this amazing kauri forest than kiwi - sheet web spiders, weta and kauri snails are amongst the other wildlife to be seen. And lets not forget the amazing Kauri Trees themselves which have been watching over the Park for 100's of years.
We have a limited number of 'Kits' so I would advise you to book ahead to secure your tour, but you are welcome to reserve one at reception when you arrive or during your stay. The price for the Self Guided Tour is $25 for your group, but you can book an extra kit for $20 if you have a large group.
