Memories to last a lifetime – the night you met a kākāpō! YouTube sensation Sirocco is one of just 124 of these charming flightless parrots left on the planet. All kākāpō live on protected islands so don’t miss this rare chance to meet him at Zealandia – just 10 minutes from the city. Book your date with a living legend now.
See how Sirocco became an infamous YouTube star:
Sirocco is live at Zealandia ’til 3 September.
Kākāpō are nocturnal so book your evening date with Sirocco for 6.30pm, 7pm, 7.30pm or 8pm. You will receive an introduction at our Visitor Centre, including a short film, then head out in to the sanctuary valley to come face-to-face with the beautiful and charming Sirocco and his knowledgeable handler – a one hour experience in total. Yummy hot food and souvenirs available.
