TAKE A BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR OF A KIWI HATCHERY AND GET UP CLOSE WITH NZ'S ADORABLE NATIONAL BIRD

pin-icon   Rotorua, New Zealand

An incubation education.

Set amongst the gorgeous forests and springs of the Maori spiritual home of Rotorua, you'll learn all about a national icon and the remarkable efforts undertaken to save New Zealand's national bird. The adorable, flightless kiwi remains critically endangered, but this hatchery - recently visited by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan - incubates and hatches eggs and inspires hope for the future. On this interactive behind the scenes tour you'll have the opportunity to stand in a human-sized kiwi burrow and meet the birds themselves in a nocturnal enclosure. Sure, it's inspirational, but it's also a serious cuteness overload.
