New Zealand’s movie-star landscapes are famous the world over, but less well known is our uniquely kiwi wildlife. A small island the size of Japan at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand’s environment has evolved in isolation for millions of years.

The deep south of New Zealand is a place like no other. Here, time moves slower; the un-crowded, rugged natural beauty and old school kiwi hospitality of the region charming all who visit.

The mountains meet the sea in dramatic fashion in the coastal town of Kaikoura, creating an environment that supports a fascinating array of wildlife. Albatross, whales, dolphins, fur seals and more call Kaikoura home, making it heaven for lovers of unique marine and birdlife.

Thousands of years ago New Zealand was a world of birds and forests. An isolated island nation, New Zealand is home to some of the world’s most unique and rare birdlife.
