Mise à part le prix un peu cher pour l'entrée, j'ai bien aimé ma matinée dans le parc et la maison des kiwis.

We had the opportunity to see several kiwis in their terrier or wooden house, during the nourrisage or when they searched the ground with their beaks and for long minutes and close the windows. To do this, we have seen patiently in silence a good half hour and we were spoiled. The Park is nice too with the feedings of residents with explanations. Do

Nice staff and walk looking at all the different birds. Only really saw one out of the three kiwis. Good place and very informative.
Wonderful place to see native birds and reptiles. Loved seeing the Kiwis up close! Fantastic and kid friendly. Don't miss feeding times, it's the best way to see them.
It is nearly impossible to meet kiwis in nature. This small zoo gives you a unique chance to see and observe kiwis. They are very special birds and much bigger than I thought. The place worth visiting! You can also buy nice kiwi‘ souvenirs in the store inside of the zoo.
Awesome place to see native NZ birds. Very educational. You can see Kiwi, Kea & Kaka being fed. You can also learn about the Kiwi breeding program.
How could I possibly "describe my experience" while at the Kiwi House? My two pals Reagan and Grace and I traveled all the way from the states to visit Nature's miracle at its finest. Honestly I'm not sure why this doesn't have 6/5 stars. The kiwi bird is the finest thing God has ever created and if someone tells you different they are lying (and most likely going to hell for such a grave sin). The Kiwi bird is why I wake up every morning. He doesn't have wings and he still can fly. This tiny bird is such and inspiration to me. He made me quit my addictions. He brought me out of debt. He showed me that I needed to spend more tim with my children. My life. I owe it to this kiwi bird. The kiwi house allowed me to discover my true self. And more than that, it allowed me to be free. I was in the perfect state when I walked into the Kiwi House. The first time I saw a Kiwi I cried. I cried more in that moment than I did when Jared proposed, when my first daughter Elizabeth was born, when I saw the gift of the Kiwi.... I just couldn't contain myself. God bless all who go to this place, I heard it can heal disabilities and bring you to the light. The kiwi is forever etched in my heart and I can only hope he will affect you the same way. ❤️
