More about this activity

Tucked between the hills and the ocean there is a precious remnant of the once abundant Kāpiti lowland swamp forest. Visitors to Ngā Manu will enjoy the accessible and compact 14h site, whether it be the forest, walk-in aviaries, lookout tower, BBQ Island, or picnicking lawns beside the ponds. Ngā Manu contributes to national and local conservation through its involvement in many species breeding programmes such as for kiwi, tuatara, whio/blue duck, as well as endangered lizard species and plant conservation. Take part in the eel feeding at 2pm daily, book a Feed-Out Tour, Kiwi Night Encounter, or go behind-the-scenes on a Ranger for the Day Experience. Or enjoy the magic of the reserve all to yourself with a night in Theo's Cottage.
