Voted New Zealand’s best wildlife tour (NZ Tourism awards), is located in Dunedin, the wildlife capital of New Zealand. We offer exceptional, natural, afternoon/evening wildlife experiences on the Otago peninsula. Numerous spectacular area’s are visited during tours, the most stunning being our private conservation area where excellent close-up viewing of Penguins, Sea lions and Fur seals is presented. Viewing in this area is absolutely unrivalled. Royal Albatross are seen at Taiaroa head and other bird life is viewed around the bays and lagoons. We are Green Globe 21 assessed to the highest international standard and divert a proportion of turnover towards conservation.
