Set in 80 hectares, Orana Wildlife Park is New Zealand's only open range zoo. It is within 15 minutes drive from Christchurch airport. The Park provides amazing animal encounters: hand feed giraffe, meet rhino up close, see New Zealand's only gorillas, view kiwi and meet our lion up close (cost additional). Scheduled presentations occur daily. Visitors can enjoy the antics of cheetah, Tasmanian devils, monkeys, meerkats and more. An extensive New Zealand section features kiwi, a wide range of birds and reptiles plus two walk-through aviaries (giving the chance to meet the mischievous kea). Guided tours operate daily. A cafe and fantastic wildlife gift shop are on-site. It's a full day of fun for everyone at Orana Park.
