Because of its isolation, New Zealand has developed a
unique eco-system, maintaining plants and wildlife found nowhere else in the world that
have changed little from their ancient origins. Upon first glance, trees appear to have
feathers and birds fur, leading your imagination back to prehistoric times. With no animals
predacious to humans here, you can wrap yourself in the peaceful solitude of the lush New
Zealand bush, the silence only broken by the lilting song of the tui, the babble of a
forest stream, or the curiosity of a flitting fantail.
Wherever possible, we give you the opportunity to learn
about New Zealand's environment and to feel the exhilaration of interacting with its
wildlife one-on-one in their natural habitat. All planned encounters are done with the
utmost care given to both you and the wildlife. Check our itineraries for the regions that
feature these activities.
