Discover the awe of twilight at ZEALANDIA, as the sanctuary transforms from daylight to night during this special guided experience. You will have an opportunity to experience the dusk chorus sung by a cacophony of native New Zealand birds. Experience a flurry of activity as a range of resident birds return to their nests, against the magical backdrop of the dusk sky and the calm forest environment. You may even experience the first sights and sounds of the nocturnal birds, such as kiwi and ruru (morepork / owl) as they wake. Twilight Tours are an unforgettable, immersive experience, which will leave you feeling refreshed and inspired.
*Kiwi sightings occur occasionally on Twilight Tours. Your best opportunity to see kiwi whilst they are most active is on a ZEALANDIA By Night tour.
