Day 01
Kapiti Island

Paraparaumu - Kapiti Island

Hotel: Kapiti Nature Lodge or similar

Whether you’re a local or visiting from overseas, seeing Kiwi in their natural habitat is an experience not to be missed. Kapiti Island is home to over 1,200 Little Spotted Kiwi, making it one of the densest population of Kiwi to be found, and one of the easiest places to see them in the wild.

We'll depart from Paraparaumu and travel by ferry to Kapiti Island. Here you'll be welcomed by one of our experienced nature guides who'll give you an introduction to the island's local flora and fauna. We'll spend the midday exploring Rangatira and discovering the bushlands of the middle of the island.

In the afternoon we'll transfer from Rangatira to our lodge at the north end of the island. We'll spend the night in comfy cabins, luxurious glamping tents, or the beach bungalow with ensuite. In the evening we'll enjoy a delicious meal at the lodge before heading out on a night time Kiwi spotting walk. Let your expert guide lead you into the bush to discover these amazing naimals.

Our ferry departs from the Kapiti Boating Club at Paraparaumu Beach at approximately 9:00am. Please check in at the Kapiti Boating Club no later than 8:30am.

Dinner is included. We suggest you bring a packed lunch for today.
