Meet at the Ruggedy Range™ Booking Office for an informative overview of kiwi features and habits.

We take you by mini-van to various locations, stopping for short walks in the night. We search quietly and carefully. Your guide carries a special torch providing excellent views even on a dark night.

We have had over 80% success rate and some wonderfull views of kiwi interactions. Kiwi are highly sensitive - we do not guarantee sightings. As with other like-minded nature tour operators, we do not adopt marketing tactics of money back guarantees. Our guides work extremely hard to locate kiwi without disturbing them.

Our informative trips have an environmental focus, offer a more personalised experience in small groups. Book ahead!
