Your guide will lead you through the sanctuary valley by torchlight, in search of the distinctive sights and sounds of the New Zealand bush – including kiwi.

Possible sights: Kiwi foraging on the forest floor, tuatara hunting for food, glow-worms shining, tiny Maud Island frogs in their enclosure, kākā (parrots) coming in to roost.
Possible sounds: The high-pitched call of kiwi, the ghostly echo of the ruru (morepork), the scritch-scritch of tree wētā, the skraark of kākā and the rustling of other nocturnal creatures.

Little spotted kiwi: Over 180 of these nocturnal birds live freely in their natural environment inside the safety of the predator proof sanctuary - so your chances of finding one are good and your guide will help you.
